I just finished filling out 54 pages of refinancing paperwork for my shiny new mortgage. I’m excited to be getting a lower interest rate, but it does smart a bit to suddenly be back to 30 years instead of 28.5 years. Of course, even though I’m not paying extra on the mortgage now, the plan is to pay extra on the mortgage as my income (hopefully) increases, so it won’t actually be a full 30 years anyway.
It will be nice to have the extra cash each month, especially as repairs keep popping up.
This weekend, I continued work on the water damaged master bathroom. I re-scraped the damaged plaster, making sure I got all the loose bits, then sanded everything just slightly. The next step was to paint the whole thing with Kilz primer. Yes, before actually doing the repairs. This prevents any water staining from coming through. Sometime this week, I’m going to do the patching, then re-paint with the primer again.
Then I have to do what I consider the hard part. Pick out paint colors. EEEK.
