It's been a crazy past few weeks with our move and then getting the previous house ready for final inspection. All went very well with that, thank goodness. So you would think that we would now be able to settle in and enjoy our new house, wouldn't you? WRONG!
After a few days we have noticed problems with waste water draining away far too slowly and the front lawn is now very soggy with water visibly sitting on the surface. Not a good sign. I use my washing machine and the waste water fills the laundry tub instead of flowing away unseen. We hear very loud, gurgling noises coming from toilets or sinks if water is in use in other areas of the house. The builder was called in and we have found out that there is a broken pipe under the front lawn. Just my luck! Thankfully, they will be fixing the problem on Monday but, for now, we are faced with a major inconvenience as we have to be careful of how much waste water is leaving the house at any one time so it doesn't back up too much. As I am one to try to look to the positive side of a situation, I will say that it could have been worse. At least, it will only be the front lawn being dug up and nothing inside the home will be affected. PHEW!
Apart from that, we LOVE our new home! I still have a lot of unpacking to do but it's mainly studio stuff in the garage. I plan to set up an area in the garage to use for my art studio which I can hardly wait to do so I get painting again.
Here are a couple of pics of our lounge -
