I've been listening to all my other projects yell and the Blackwork Dragon wins for now. So he will come out for a few days.
So let's update on the house for those who have been following along.
The drain guy came Monday. He worked and he worked. He ended with not good news. The drain is old and isn't working 100%. The only way to fix it is put in a new drain. This is a very expensive and very hard to do project. Consists of ripping out the concrete floor section and putting in new drain and blah blah blah. But we got it to take water for now. We used Korte and my first impression is they were out for money which I've heard now from a lot of people. We also talked to him about our dripping faucet in the kitchen and he said he would put in a whole new faucet starting price $500 not including labor of course!!! He sure wasn't willing to talk about a cheaper option. So that was disheartening. So the end result was leave the sink dripping for now and hope the drain in the garage keeps taking the water for now. So far so good no standing water in the drain.
Last Friday we also found out we needed a new furnace. It needed some many things fixed that it just wasn't going to be worth it. We went with JO Mory for this and I've been nothing but happy with their service. The salesman didn't rip us off he offered us just what we needed. We've been told for several years our furnace and AC was not efficient. So time to bite the bullet and listen. Over the weekend and till Wednesday we were able to stay warm enough. We did have to get a new electric heater cause one stopped working (yep another problem). So Wednesday the two guys showed up and got to work. By 3:30pm we had heat! Nice heat!! Ahh feels good to be warmer than just getting by finally. They had to come back this morning to get the AC finished off which is okay cause we won't be needing it any time soon haha. So let's call this the end to home repairs for at least a little bit okay?
