We’re back again at the Donald Tucker Rehab House in Praire Village to take a closer look at the all the problem trees hanging over the house. We really need a tree trimmer.
Don’t let Don fool you, he can’t stand trees hanging over houses. Keep in mind that one of the first houses we rehabbed had at one time had a huge tree, but a big ice storm had broken up that tree, and when we bought that first house, half of that big tree was sitting in the middle of the living room floor looking up at the open sky where the roof used to be. So, not a big fan of trees hanging over a house.
At this house besides hanging over the house, there were other tree issues. Roots getting in drain lines and causing drainage issues. We have other trees hanging over the neighbor’s house that could fall and cause problems and overall they are just unsightly and in the way. Glad we found a great tree trimmer.
And while we didn’t look down much in this video, the back yard where the 20 + dogs sometimes got to go outside, they had totally destroyed the grass. Entire yard beyond the trees and trash was bald dirt.
By the way, the guys a Bee Tree did a great job trimming the trees for us, but the prices we quoted were 2010 prices, not current.
Checkback next week for the next installment on this Prairie Village home where we replaced the full roof and gutters, plus all the windows, the doors and the siding. If you have a home that needs this much work, and you just don’t want to spend the time or the money, another option is to sell the home.
NOT PENALIZED FOR NOT GETTING EVERYTHING CLEANED OUT OF THE HOUSE
I liked the fact that I wasn’t penalized or felt pressure for not getting everything cleaned out of the house. There was over 40 years and three families’ worth of treasure stored in the house, making me feel that the challenge of cleaning it was going to be impossible. I did what I could and you never hesitated in telling me that it’s ok to leave the rest behind.
