It is taking some time for myself and others to get used to the lake house I just bought and moved into.
The inside is pristine and the cement floors are gorgeous.
They are ceramic however have a wood pattern on the top. You get the look of wood floors with the durability and lifespan of ceramic tile. If you focused on all of the wonderful upgrades the previous owner made, you would completely miss the fact that the condominium was built in 1984. It took myself and others sometime while painting and moving things out of the attic for myself and others to find some of the wear and tear that was almost hidden when I first acquired the keys. The easiest thing to notice are all of the gashes in the drywall that were patched with spackle years ago and painted over many times since. If you look from afar, you can’t see them well at all. But once you start peering in close, you’ll notice imperfections throughout. The next thing that I found in subpar condition was the oven vent hood. And it could not have been a worse way to discover this problem, as I accidentally started a fire in the oven and frantically switched the vent as nothing happened. I couldn’t get our windows open fast enough because I was in a total panic. That’s when I heard a beeping noise coming from our air cleaner across the room. It automatically detects airborne fumes and VOCs, with smoke being a single of multiple examples. The machine will automatically crank up the internal fans if it reads a high VOC level in the air. Miraculously, that little machine cleared the smoke out of our condo in just 30 minutes. Between the strong fans and the 3 stages of filtration, I had little problem getting the smoke to clear out completely.
