Our back door and downstairs walls are leaking. I don’t think this house likes us very much.
This will be a short post; let’s get down to numbers:
|Interest Rate||Remaining||Base Payment||Extra Payments|
In January, I paid the mortgage early, because I hadn’t yet set up automated payments; this month, I set up the automated payments, so the monthly mortgage payment will come out on the first of every month. Our second payment is due March 1, so basically no payment this month because we paid this month’s last month. Not much progress.
In renovation news, our new walls are framed, and we have almost all of our appliances*. We even managed to do a load of laundry before the walls started leaking. This weekend, we head down to Richmond (VA) to pick up everything we’ve stored at our parents’ houses. Since the family room / basement / downstairs keeps flooding, we’ll put everything in our (future) bedroom for now; can’t risk DW’s books to the water.
* The microwave came a bit damaged, so we sent it back. That’s the only appliance that we have ordered but is still missing.
