Another Job Completed

We have a barrel tile roof, and the last time we had it cleaned, the fellow wasn't careful. The inspector found some roof damage. Today, the roofers came to repair it so that the buyers can smile when they sign at closing.









All done! 

Now that I think about it, we could've had a nasty surprise if that roof began leaking. With the rainy season coming, a secure roof is a necessary thing. I'm glad the inspector found the problem and that it's fixed.

I just read Faye's comment. She's left me a comment in the past. I'll be sure to pop over and let her know I'm praying for her.

Your home looks beautiful, Sally! The buyers are going to be very lucky!

Becky K. said...

So glad it coud be taken care of.

It looks absolutely beautiful there. I guess you are far enough south to have missed all of that mess in Orlando.

The home you are leaving is beautiful too. Lucky new owners!

Have a great day!

Sally, your home is just breathtaking. Oh, my....it is so pretty.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Amen, Sally! With the rains we've been having, it's imperative!

XO,

It will definitely be appreciated by the new owners. Sounds like you guys are getting that rain now too.

Darla said...

So glad you got that repaired. What a nice home.

Home inspections are a good thing, even when you are not selling, sometimes stuff can go bad and youre not aware, the buyers are getting a great looking home, just beautiful!

Sally,

Those home inspectors can be quite helpful. Before we started work on a new patio at the lake, we had to have our home inspected in order to get a permit. Because our home sits on marshy ground, many, many things were found wrong. $30,000 later, we are safe and sound.

xoxo

Another job checked off! Move on to the next one. Doesn't if feel good when a task is completed? You're well on your way! "Hello Central Florida. Here we come!"

Neas Nuttiness said...

Can't wait to see the new house.

nikkicrumpet said...

Well if that's the only thing the inspectors found that needed fixing then you did pretty good. And the new home owners are lucky to be getting such a gorgeous house!

Becky said...

Your yard is gorgeous!

Barbara H. said...

To me, getting all these kinds of things done is one of the most frustrating parts of moving. Glad you were able to tick this one off the list and that the new owners will be dry and secure when the rains come!

Florida Sue said...

I think that it is wonderful that you are moving to Central Florida. I love the Tampa area, it is about an hour from us, but we visit on a regular basis. Congratulations on selling so quickly. You must be very excited. I hope the times goes by quickly so that before you know it, you will be cozy in your new home.

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Your home is beautiful, and I love those big white fluffy clouds and blue skies*!!! Are you SURE you want to move*? Just kidding*! I'm sure where ever you go will be beautiful too. _Ashley~

Barbara said...

Sally, Good thing the bad places were found. I know things are moving fast for you,,packing, etc

Have you found a place to rent while your house is being built?

xinex said...

You have a beautiful home, Sally! No wonder you found a buyer so fast...Christine

Charli and me said...

Beautiful home Sally. I like that syle of roof. It's very pretty.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Selling and buying is really good at times I think.. It 'forces' us to do some of the things to our house--and get things the way we want them at the new home---which is good...

I'm excited that you are building your home. You'll love all of the things you can do to personalize it. My son is a home-builder in Texas --so he would tell you to keep a CLOSE watch during the building and make sure that they do everything you want done. I'm sure you'll do that.

Hugs,
Betsy
P.S. Your home where you are now is GORGEOUS.. It's no wonder you sold it so quickly.

Charlotte said...

Our house has this kind of roof. When we bought it I thought we'd never have any roofing problems. NOT!
I didn't realize it was the black stuff under the tiles that kept the rain out and it deteriorates so fast in AZ.
Happy Packing.
Charlotte
