FASCIA PROBLEMS

The fascia on our new (to us) house has weathered and rotted and must be replaced.

In case, like moi, you're not quite sure what fascia is, it's the boards going round the house right under the eaves that, in our case, gutters are fastened to. I wouldn't have realized they were rotted but my guy did when we first looked at the house. He's been chomping at the bit to get them fixed ever since we closed. So the men have come today to start work. He's there supervising and, I hope, staying out of the way.

Once the fascia is fixed, the roofers should start. We've picked out the paint shades, too, so soon painting will also commence. Still waiting on new water heater and other things, but it's getting there.

If only we didn't actually have to move stuff! Like two sofa-beds and other big furniture.

  1. We found some teenagers down the street hanging around in their yard looking at their cars. We asked them if they'd move our futon for us. They acted like it was a wonderful idea, and would accept no pay because that wouldn't be "neighborly." Otherwise we'd still have it half in the house and half in the garage. Or you could try going to the high school and see if the office had some suggestions about kids who might want to earn a little gas money.

    1. Oh, we have a moving company lined up. When we bought the last sofabed, two burly men almost couldn't get it into the condo and they were professionals. No way we can do it ourselves!

  2. It is a thing with all too many men that we feel compelled to watch work going on at our homes. I have no idea why....

    1. Yep, my guy does. But he'll jump right in if invited! Sometimes if he's NOT invited!
