Our home was built around the 50s which is kind of old so to speak. A lot of home improvement is needed. We undertook some renovations here and there but we are kind of getting tired of it. Hubby and I are thinking of buying a piece of land and hire a company to build a new house if our finances would let us. One of the few home improvements that we did is putting an insulation at the attic as the ones there were old and disintegrating when we bought the house. The insulation of this home is not that good as we can hear noises outside. We want a Home Insulation so when Winter rolls around, our home will stay warm.
This is how our home looked like when we first bought it. Below is what it looks like now after we built a new front porch. Having a new home is our long term goal. We are tired of dealing with constant updates and problems that arises in this home that we bought 7 years ago.
The good thing about building a new home is you can have it the way you want it to. You can even have a government grants for solar if you want to go green but you have to pay attention with the Green Deal Scheme to avoid any conflict later on.
