LOL!!!!! That makes so much more sense! That is not something you want to mistype when trying to sell your house. Hilarious.

Wireless doorbell for $12.10

We have a wired doorbell, but lately it hasn't been ringing in the basement. I could investigate that, or just replace it all for $12...

Bought.

I might have to do this as well. We have a doorbell button but nothing in the house for it to chime to so it's just for show I guess.

Or you can go the Corey route and get a smart one!

$12 is cheap enough for me to give this a try. I like that you can change the tone/volume. Roscoe FREAKS out when the doorbell rings, maybe it won't be as bad if we turn the volume down.

I wish we had a doorbell wire so I could get a fancier one!

Our door bell you have to hold down and it plays it's stupid little tune, or if you press it once like a normal person or makes an annoying short beep

I've been a homeowner for no more than a week and I have already encountered a few problems.

A piece of drywall fell off the wall of our garage, a light went out, and last night we had a gas leak! Fun times!

And I'm sure this is just the beginning :P

I chopped down some ugly bushes that were planted way to close to the house last night. Next comes the shitty part of actually digging them out.

How does drywall fall off? What was the cause of the gas leak?

n00b. You shouldn't have chopped. Now you don't have anything to attach a rope to. I pulled out some small shrubs with my car and it was easy.

There's still a good base at the bottom. These were very tall, unmanaged bushes that were half way up the side of the house. Although I'm not sure pulling them out with a vehicle will be an option because of where they're placed.

The drywall was only held on the bottom by 3 screws and had no support on the top...the garage door opening and closing shook it off i guess?

And the compression fittings on the gas line leading to the dryer were fittings that should only be used for liquid, NOT for gas. So now i have to replace those so we can use our dryer again =/

Woah...you're the only person I've heard of living in the Midwest with a gas dryer. I thought that was more of a coastal thing for some reason.

We have a gas dryer in our current house. Which really sucks, because we had a really nice gas dryer that's sitting in our shed until we can rewire our electricity.
