Hi there,

First a picture of our new home.

The "Makaan" of Roti Kapda aur Makaan

So we’ve lived in the house for close to 3 months now and are finally settling in. Almost all of the boxes have been unpacked even though many things are not in there final homes yet and are always being moved around. We also haven’t bought any furniture yet, ( although I’ve been visiting furniture stores and craigslist frequently) is for a couple of reasons.

The first reason bring that this time around I simply do not want to add furniture to the home without any consideration to design and aesthetics  and second being that we wanted to get a new roof before we started spending money on other things.

This home was a bank owned foreclosure and we knew before we bought the home that its roof would need replacement and it would have to happen SOON. Every time it rained we would cringe and pray that the roof not leak, this was especially true after the last storm that brought hail to the Bay Area.

Hail deposited by the storm last week

Now I know that this is not a lot, but for a roof that has missing shingles and two people who do not know a lot yet about roofs and repair of roofs, it was scary.

So we finally got our free estimates done and chose a new roof for our home. We are going with this brand of roof called Certain Teed and are having it installed next week. Hopefully with the roof taken care of we can focus on the other million things that need to be taken care of in the home.
