This a "wish" list of home improvements. Some of these things may not get done. :( My hubby has informed me he'd like to retire in the next year or two!!
We bought our house in 1997 and each year we've done a little something. It's been 21 years (this year) but we still have some things on our list that "need" to get done and also stuff we'd "like" done. And some things are having to be redone since they are breaking down or wearing out! Such as the hot tub (2002), the carpeting on stairs (2010), and the stair posts (2011) and BBQ posts (2003) that Finn (puppy) has chewed.
So each year, usually in the spring, we try to sit down and prioritize the list. There isn't much left on this list since we've been knocking stuff off the last couple of years but I wanted to post an update.
You might not be interested but I like to use my blog as a photo album and place to record stuff.
Here's our last WISH LIST with updates in no particular order (*denotes Major reno):
*Kitchen - Cabinets/countertops, Knook (?) and move some REPLACE all appliances, resurface/flat popcorn ceiling (2019)
*Outside Front - Front doors/Landscaping/Rock work at Foundation and raised planter/lighting/driveway/replace grass with rock walk way (2019)
Outside - Replace gutters, replace cedar facing on BBQ awning posts (Finn chewed)
Stair carpeting - replace - we did the floors a few years ago but now the stair treads are showing wear!

I just have to keep buying those lottery tickets so we can finish off this list...or move!
Until next time...
