Any Contractors Out There I Need Help!!!!! 🔨🔨🔨🔨🏡🏠

I need help with some small projects around my home. So let me explain what my plans are, I want to start getting some small things fixed around my home at a cheap price so that we can sell the home soon. In our neighborhood right now houses are not being renovated on the inside and prices have dropped a little. So using advice from all the blogs and professionals I follow upgrading and renovating with high end materials in a area that isn’t having this type of work done will not increase the value of my home and no one will purchase our home for the price we want. 

Home improvements are very expensive and placing a lot more money into this home when we wont get it back in return just isn’t in the cards, so my goal is to fix the important things at the best way I can. 

First on the list is my windows, I don’t want to spend money on new windows for my whole house even if I only have 8 windows. So I was hoping to get advice and referrals of companies that are in Maryland that could help me with this issue. 

One day I opened my window and I didn’t feel a difference but I let go thinking it would stay up and it came crashing down very hard. The latch that u push to pull the window into the house and the spring inside that went flying across the room. The metal window frame at the top that holds the latch is bent forward and I didn’t want to press on it because I didn’t want to pressure to break the glass inside the window. So now the window won’t stay closed and air is going out and air coming in. 

In order to sell our home I know we need this fixed because if a child was in that bedroom that is very dangerous. So I need any help I can get. Excuse my photos of my dusty window these were before spring cleaning happened lol 

  
This is a photo of the broken latch I placed it on top so I wouldn’t lose it and the top where it is sitting u can see that the frame is bent some. 

   
     

So if anyone knows a handyman or business that can come out to help fix this so I don’t need to replace the windows would be a great help to me. Thanks 

Garage Apartment 🏡🏠🔨🔨

We currently live in a townhouse, I love my house but there are things I wish I would have needed when we were looking at houses 15 yrs ago. We said we would only be here five years and then move and here we are 15 years later in the same home. One thing I don’t like about the house we live in currently is that we do not have a basement. 

Having a basement would give us so much more room and I don’t think I would want to move if we had a basement. Well we are thinking about getting our home ready to sell but it will take some time. We joke all the time with my mom that we will build a large apartment over her garage and live there lol. 

I was on Pinterest and found some examples of what I could build on top of the garage which is a two car garage. One example of a one car garage but I saved it because I loved the little screened in porch etc. 

I am not sure which websites the photos came from to give them credit for photos.

I totally wish I had the money to start building this apartment over the garage, I don’t even know if I could I am sure permits would have to be pulled and more. But a girl can dream
