Much like "the step" in Modern Family, what's the one thing around your house that just you can't get fixed?

 

 

 

----------------------------------------------

 

 

Mine? It's the shower door. I've tried so many "fixes" but it just never does the trick. It's a cheap builder's grade door and just needs to be replaced entirely. Those things are just so darn expensive and time consuming to replace.

I live alone with two large dogs...90 and 150 lbs. It is amazing how fast and how dirty they can get the house. It is a never ending job to keep the house clean. As far as repairs.... I need a new deck and my garage doors need new header boards put in and re-wrapped (trim bent on a brake).

Our house in the fall. We have about 30 trees that surround the house. When the leaves start dropping end of October it's never ending until the first week in December. During that time I become one with the leaf blower.

The pool....I didn't want one, still don't, my wife won't let me drain it and skateboard in it. It needs constant attention and I think it has some underlying major issues that I haven't figured out yet. Had to drain it completely and get it acid and chlorine washed this last year and I don't feel like that really helped anything all that much. It always has algae problems and I feel like I have to clean the filter once a week which I've been told should really only be a once a month to once every 3 month job.

Maybe you just live in one of those areas that has worse problems with that than others.

 

A guy I work with has a huge house with a nice pool and hates it. Since his kids are grown, no one ever uses the pool but he still has to maintain the crap out of it.

Mine is a bit left field, rabbits!

 

I'm on an acre, and the rabbits are approaching plague proportions. Anything we plant needs a guard on it or the little @&@&&@$@s chew them to ground level. One of the few downsides of having a mild winter is the rabbits don't get knocked back by winter. Any disturbed ground gets dug up on the first night.

 

I can't shoot them, as I'm in town, and as I'm not a real farm, can't access gas pellets to gas the warrens. I'm hesitant to use other poisons because my dogs eat anything.

My son and his family - the house was bought for three people with enough room for occasional guests.

 

In this case the occasion has lasted a year and a half!

Ever try a pellet gun to dispose of them?? My dogs would take care of the rabbits if I had that problem.

Our storm drains. I'm positive there's a break somewhere because when I rains a lot our sump works overtime. The basement has flooded twice because the sump failed and there was a 7 hour power outage. No one else on the street has the problem.

 

Next year (It's too late now) I'm going to buy a waterproof camera and fish-tape from ebay, hook it up to the laptop and see what I can see.

 

Also, Bradford pear trees. They are a royal PITA. We have two that provide nice shade during the summer but because of their size, they're weak and are starting to drop limbs, big ones. Plus, their leaves don't completely drop until late December, so it's snowed and snowing and these bastards are still dropping their leaves.

Leaves and water in the cellar, we have a bunch of trees and cleaning the leaves is a full time job this time of year, I wish they were money trees lol.

 

The other is water in the cellar, our home was built in 1930 and man I hate that I can't fix it myself, it will need a French drain around the house and I'm not able to do that stuff.

I'm in the same boat, my friend. Getting rid of leaves and limbs is almost like an everyday thing.

Mine is fixable but I haven't got around to it. Our clothing dryer in the main floor is in the middle of the house and the venting runs through the floors/downstairs ceilings. The hose broke and the air was dumping into the house. I haven't used it in about 9 months (we have a stackable set downstairs as well). I have to re route the hose and install a pump to assist the air. It's my last project. For now.

But I thank God every day that I even have a house to worry about. I know there are folks that would love to have my "problems".

How about trapping them. We have a guy locally that 'takes care' of our raccoons and skunks. He sets up cage type traps and supposedly takes them and releases them in the country.
