It is that time of year again... a new year. A good time to set goals and benchmarks for upcoming projects and to plan for the future. My plans for the year include:
1) Finish Bathroom
Paint, trim, new doors and framing, new vanity extensions.
2) Replace Front and Back Door
Find and refinish doors, new framing
3) Finish Landscaping Backyard (and Plant)
Build deck, build small patio, finish fire pit, build raised vegetable gardens, finish doggy sandbox, PLANT!
4) Finish Master Bedroom
Build wall to separate it from the laundry room, build closet, install french doors, remove window into next room, floor, remove paneling and finish drywall, paint, possibly some built-ins.
5) Finish Laundry Room
See above... plus, finish hanging old kitchen cabinets, build new shelves, finish drywall, paint cabinets and walls, lay slate.
6) Wood Flooring
The biggest project: Rip out old flooring. Replace with 100 year old heart pine that is sitting in the garage.
7) Replace Trim
Replace the nasty pressed wood 70's trim, that was badly painted and is broken and cracking with something more tasteful.
8) Research and Plan Exterior Paint/Stucco/Re-Siding
Research, research, research.
9) Dog Door
Buy dog door, cut hole in wall, frame out, and screw in.
10) Compost Piles
Nail hardwood pallets together to form two or three compost bins beside the garage for easy composting.
Ambitious? Yes. Let's see how much we can do this year!
