A little bit about me…Mr. Househelper and I are new homeowners in Upstate New York. Going (for me) from living with my family, (for him) from a cramped suburban co-op to a country paradise was quite an adjustment, one we’re still getting used to. I created this blog to chronicle our experiences, successes and mistakes, along with all the tips and tricks we learn along the way. Although we consider ourselves to be extremely lucky to be in our home, we’ve gotten burned a few times and want to tell our story so that others can learn from our experiences.
