So, we've owned this house for about six years and at this point I have a pretty hefty list of "things I wish we had considered before buying a house". One of the first would be that stucco is a pain in the arse. Especially cream colored stucco. It always looks dirty, it's difficult to repair, and when you decide that you have had enough of single-pane wood windows from the 1920's and the accompanying heating bill and decide to put in vinyl you have to watch your hubs do something like this. Stand on a ladder and cut through rock with a skill saw. Yikes. However, this winter it will be nice to not have a cold breeze blowing by my head as I am going to bed. And to not have a heating bill that looks like a Lexus payment.
