Last Saturday, our landlord visited and had our kitchen tiles fixed.The tiles cracked and the tiles at the side of the sink caved out. It's a good thing that no member of the family was hurt because of the tile debris. We're thankful that we're all in the living room when that happened.
Can you imagine all these slabs of tiles hitting our feet? Uggghh.
Anyway, the good thing is that the owners of the house we're renting are beautiful people inside and out. Our landlord brought a handy man to fix the tiles last Saturday. We are so blessed to have them in our lives. They have been so kind to us and we never had any problems with them in the five years that we've been renting.
The house though is old and it needs a lot of renovation. If this house is located in Canada, the landlord and his family would always be calling renovations ottawa for repairs. Good thing is, the handy man seems to be my landlord's friend so it's easy to discuss with him the other repairs needed for the house.
And the good news is, our landlord has already expressed to us that his family is willing to sell the house to us. We were so happy about that. We love this house because of the good memories that we have in here and I can't imagine living anywhere else. But as I said, we need to overhaul the place. For one, we need to do some foundation repair like what waterproofing ottawa companies do. We need to completely demolish the second floor so that the floors would be made of hard cement and not just wood. We also need to adjust the foundation and make it a little bit higher, just a measure against flood.
We're 90% sure about the house. What's holding us back is the cost of the renovation. It's like building a brand new house! But I guess it would be worth it. The house is near our son's schools, near the market, church and is in a relatively peaceful community. I hope our landlord will give us a little bit more of a discount. Wish us luck!
