One of the drawbacks of owning property is maintaining it. As we live by the sea, the constant salt air is a force of nature that we battle every day.
The need to paint and clean off the salt are a constant reminder of where we live. Back in California, we painted the house once every five years.
Below is a video I made when we needed to have a door lock replaced on one of our side doors.
Down here, you just cannot go to Home Depot or Lowe's and buy a lock.  If you did go to the ferreterĂ­a (hardware store) to buy a lock,  you still would need the tools and the skill to install it.
This is one of our side doors where the lock was replaced. Actual time for the lock to be replaced was 1.5 hours and the total cost was $25.00.






If you have something to say, let me know so I can put it in the blog.
