New Home Improvement
Starbuck [18:05] Comments: 2 []
As a new home-owner, I'd like to share a few quick-and-easy DIY tips with anyone else moving into a new house without the time to deal with those itty-bitty home repairs.
  1. Are you living within a cold climate? Are there gaps between your external windows and the window frame? Do you have patio doors which don't snugly meet from top to bottom? Can't be arsed to fit proper draft excluders straight away?

    Then get some masking tape to keep the chill at bay. It's cheap, quick and efficient.

  2. Has your new house got a dripping tap? Not got round to fitting a new washer as yet? Do you feel that you're becoming agitated at its intermitent but relentless flow, wasting money, and destroying the environment?

    Don't force it (faucet). Instead, put a pint glass underneath the tap. You'll get a free glass of water whenever you most need it, and a constant reminder of the important of hydration.

    Don't ncessarily leave it until the glass is full - dihydrogen-monoxide is less effectively utilised by the body when the intake mechanism is binge-drinking.

  3. Get my Dad round. Vraiment il est Monsieur Bricolage!
