Sorta OT - Making my life easier
I know the house won't clean itself, but I'm brainstorming ideas for making the upkeep easier. We're moving at whatever point finds a job that he wants. We want our next house(s) to be lower maintenance. I'm looking for ideas.
Here's what we know so far.
-We want four bedrooms instead of three so we can have a computer/craft room.
-Our next house will be either brick or rock so we don't have to have the thing repainted every three years.
-There will be no more carpet because it just traps too much dirt and smells.
-The landscaping will be friendlier even if we have to plant it ourself.
- I want a room specifically for the washer and dryer so the clean clothes don't get dropped in the living room.
I know this topic has probably been done in one fashion or another. What changes have you made or would make to make your residence more livable?
