217: Home Improvement


In my experience no good ever comes out of trying to do your own home improvements when your home is 78 years old, has plaster walls, it's 9:00 at night, and the instructions claim that it will be simple or easy. With an old house it's never simple or easy.
I'm grateful that in our attempts to "improve" our home the damage we caused wasn't major this time.

Oh dear! I wonder what you did now. :)

I would hate to see how bad my home improvements would be with a house that old....I have a hard time not destroying things with my 36 year old house.

What are you guys working on now?

We were just trying to put up a new light. It didn't even require any wiring. We put a nice hole in the plaster, though.
