Bedside Reading

I thought I’d share some of my favorite books that I’m using while on my journey of home ownership.

Finding the Perfect Place

So I should probably update the world with the newest news of my newest house. 

Unfortunately, my previous love (I may have been slightly delusional when falling in love with this house which apparently is how it’s supposed to happen, right?) and I were not meant to be.

By this, I mean that the sellers of my great remodeling project were unwilling to put a new roof on (asphalt shingles over cedar shingles do not equal home insurance) or install the vapor shield underneath the house (because it sits on a natural spring, whodathunkit?).
