You’ve heard of Jerry-rigging something before right? Well our house’s previous owner (who’s name is Jerry, ironically) was the KING of Jerry-rigging. Our home is absolutely beautiful and we love it, but Jerry obviously made a few
updates improvements changes over the years and, well, he wasn’t as handy as he thought he was. Examples of his work are the vent over the stove (it isn’t connected to go outside), paint jobs are pretty terrible, he replaced a piece on the wood stove and when we had it inspected they told us he put it on upside down and it was a fire hazard. Greeeeeeeat… Also the kitchen floor is uneven, as in there is a slight slope about 6 inches from the back wall by the pantry. It’s not visible, but after walking around in the kitchen barefoot, we know it’s there, and so does the pantry door. So this past weekend we had to sand the bottom of the pantry door down so it wouldnt scrape the top of the slope and put a hole in the linoleum floor. (Ignore how messy we look, I was mowing the lawn and Jesse had been doing other yard work) We emptied out the shelves and popped them out. Then Jesse used a screwdriver and a hammer to pull the pins out of the hinges so he could take the door down. Out to the garage it goes for a little sanding! Good thing we got that belt sander for FREE from my grandparents’ house recently! And done! It was a 5 minute job, but had to be done!
Now if only I could get Jesse to work on the A-List this weekend…
Happy Friday!! Do you have any fun weekend plans? Or are you working around the house too?
