Reading Young House Love this morning, I learned that some buyers do a final walk through of the property they have purchased, prior to closing. As first time home buyers, we didn’t know such a thing was possible. Our buyer’s agent didn’t even suggest it (he was rather unenthusiastic to begin with). But, armed with knowledge, next time I’m going to insist. Because, without a final walkthrough, we inherited this:
|Other than the worklamp, NONE of this was our stuff.
Even the recycling bin came stuffed . . .

Makes my effort look more impressive 😉
They left a note, saying they just plum ran out of time. So, instead of getting straight to work renovating, I wasted a morning bagging up their garbage, which included disgusting stuff I won’t even mention. There was junk in the basement too, we just didn’t have the energy to photograph it. I was so angry. This was just one of many annoying and selfish things the old owners had done (or, in this case, not done). At least now I know.
Next summer we are going to make the garage pretty! We saved the counter from our kitchen for a work bench and will paint it some fun bright colour. Hubby is pretty excited.

They even left that chair. Among unmentionables.
