House To Do List

Two posts, one day. I know. Pretty amazing.
 
But, I just wanted to post this before I forget so I have a place to keep track of everything that we want to do to the house. At some point we are going to have to start working on it again, so at least I'll have the list somewhere.
 
I was surprised that it didn't seem too bad. We joke that we have 30 years to finish the house and by then we will want to do it all over! Haha. Some stuff is super easy, and some stuff involved MAJOR renovations that we don't know if they are even possible of it we can afford them.
 
Here it goes:

  2. Whoa! Your list is pretty long. But, I think you guys can handle it. Actually, it sounds like it might be kind of fun to do all of that stuff and see how it turns out! I say that being the one that isn't doing the work though, so feel free to virtually slap me if need be, haha! The Husband and I always joke that we are going to go on the door a month program so that we can replace all the doors in our house, haha! So maybe you guys can do that too!
