We did the inspection on the new house this morning. The vendors are seriously disorganized, and had not left the remote for the side door and garage with the agent. They had also left some junk alongside the garage, but we were not willing to delay settlement while we waited for them to deal with it. Sigh.

We saw a few more areas that will need work, including correcting the drainage in the back yard (probably with some ag pipe), replacing some missing roof tiles, and resealing the roof. We already knew we needed to reseal the shower, & replace the guttering.

Ah well, we did save our pennies for fixing up the place, and given that the only internal job that needs doing in the first instance is the
paintwork, we should be ok.

We also need:
A new futon for the sofa bed (so we can have sleepovers)
An outdoor table setting (we missed out on a nice used one on bay last night, dang it)
An Aerobin composter
A water tank (to go with the shiny new guttering)
A couple of loads of compost, manure, straw etc ( to get the new veggie beds started)

I have a fair amount saved, and so does MrB, so we should be able to cover the initial list fairly well. Then it’s just a matter of setting our goals & working out our budget.
