A Handyman’s Special   Leave a comment

When my husband and I bought our house almost two decades ago (wow, can’t believe it’s been that long), we knew what we were getting into. At the time, this handyman’s special was what we could afford, so when we moved in, we did our best to redo the inside of the house.

I’ll never forget when my son said the kitchen looked “yucky”. Justin was not lying at all. This house was a mess. In the kitchen, there were Cheerios somehow stuck on the wall and the living room was furnished with some really old rug. We basically tore this house down from within and turned it upside down as well.

It took many years for it to look the way it does, but we can all say it was worth it.

There were even old, torn down chicken coops in the backyard along with a really old school stone grill. It was all worn down by then, so we couldn’t give it a shot. If only…

…actually, to be on the safe side, I don’t think cooking anything on that would be a good idea.

This house that looked like a mess years ago is now what we’ve called our home for so long. It’s now our sanctuary, and while there are still some improvements needed, it’s come a LONG way from when we first step foot in it.

That’s why if you’re knowledgeable in home improvement or can afford a contractor and think it’s worth the costs, then think about a handyman’s special on the market. It can become your dream come true.

However, if you’re still on a budget and would still rather opt for something in move-in condition, let’s keep searching to find the house of your dreams. A handyman’s special isn’t for everyone, so find something that’s a fit for you. With many Milford CT homes for sale, there’s bound to be one for you.
