We just bought our first house in Charlotte NC. We have decided that we are going to change all the locks before we move in. This way no one else will have a key to our house.
It isn't that we think other people who used to live here will break in but it is just an added layer of security for us. We like to feel like our home is safe. We have a back door, front door and garage door that all new door locks on them. Once this is done we will be ready to move in. We are very excited about living in our new home.
It took us a long time to decide on buying a house. We looked for three months and finally found what we were looking for. It has the right look, right amount of land and the space our family needs.
Our old house was too small for us. When we moved into it a few years ago we didn't have any children. We now have two with one on the way so we knew we needed more space. Plus, this new house has a nice backyard for our boys to play in.
In addition to changing out the locks we also need to repaint most of the rooms. We simply do not like the color they picked and don't want to live with it. It is a shame because we know the old owners just painted it.
We already have a lot of ideas for what we want our new house to look like. We have talked it over and have a good plan. It will take a lot of work but it will be worth it to have the house the way we want.
Luckily it is summer so we have some nice weather to work with. We need to have a window installed over our bedroom. We have always wanted a skylight so we decided we were going to put one in.
To make sure everything goes smoothly with the locks we contacted few locksmiths in Charlotte NC and learned that not only they can get the job done for us, we can also make some really cute keys these days and that is what we plan to do. We will make enough keys to give a copy to my parents and sister who live in town in case they need to get into our house for one reason or another.
