Re: Are you asking us to dream again?
Oh my!! Your house sounds like mine. I find that if I do the things that HAVE to be done right away like taking out trash, fixing tub spigot, plastic on widows, fixing stormdoor so it won't bang open........ it gets done right away and no 3 to 4 week or months waiting to see it get done. We have a list sooooooo long I really can't see and end yet and they are all little things. Oh yeah and getting bats out of our attic come spring and plugging holes from them.
Perfection is achieved by many seasons of trial and error.
