Mold Update

Sooooo, it looks like we're moving. Don't know where. Don't know exactly when. The Mold & Asbestos Abatement Man was here yesterday and we're told that all the windows need to be replaced, some clean-up done, and painting and patching. It's 6 weeks alone to get the windows ordered and who knows how long to install them. The people who own the house seem optimistic that it can be done in about a week but I know how construction goes. As soon as they open up those walls I'm sure things will go wrong. To top it all off the washer broke today and leaked water all over our laundry room...again. I'm so fed up and overwhelmed by this place. How do homeowners cope with houses that won't behave? At least we have the option to move to a cheaper, mold-free place. Rents in Seattle are pretty good right now and though we'll probably have to leave the neighborhood I'm looking forward to not living in a place that makes me sick and is too expensive. If anyone has super-secret awesome locations that are inexpensive and MOLD-FREE please do tell.

  2. Ugh...at least you will moving to a place that is healthy for you and your family. We bought new construction a few years ago so that helps with repairs. However, in the last year we have had heat go out on us as well as hot water. You can't win either way. Good luck in finding a new home!
