So, I finally bit the bullet and scheduled roofers to come and install full gutters on my house. In a couple of weeks, I will finally have proper roof drainage. This will allow us to set my wife’s raised bed gardens in the best spot in our backyard, a spot that was previously unavailable due to the lack of gutters.
Over the past few months, I have also been installing Ring cameras in the front of our house. It started with a doorbell, and expanded to include additional front porch and driveway coverage. I eventually want to get their new indoor security system, mostly to get door and window coverage. I worry that the pets would make indoor motion sensors mostly useless.
I still want to replace our water heater at some point, but I am torn between tank and tankless. That would be the last original appliance in our house, besides one of the garage door openers.
I’ve been trying to move to more automated systems, including Google Home compatibility, where feasible. Not that I really need to be able to ask Google if my garage door is open, but I do think it would be cool.
