Personally do? 0

We had a list before my son's wedding and that all got done. It included a lot of landscaping, painting the kitchen and the outside wooden windows and doors.  This was needed for at least two years, so that was motivation to get it done.

We are starting to scout our out-of-state move, and that means the basement has to be cleaned out. I swear Hubby is gonna need a dumpster. Since we do not plan on moving this year (even if we were to buy elsewhere in 2021),  that may wait a bit.

I am with ya on the Zero....we are building an outdoor porch with fireplace..well not me but our GC is ...starts as soon as the super efficient City of Richmond approves the project and we get a permit..only been 9 weeks since we applied!

 

And Ann, when we prepared to sell our house of 20 years last fall, no way we could have done it without a dumpster. Having said that, i had some huge spaces under the house that collected stuff for twenty years...as well as pretty good sized attic. 

 

For the $350 or so it cost for the 20ft dumpster...worth every single penny! We filled that sucker up!!!!

So many projects, so little time. My short list right now includes:

 

Installing recessed lighting and replacing the floor in the family room.

 

Replacing the front door.

 

Running a permanent electric line to the shed.

 

Refinishing the existing hardwood floors.

 

Tearing down the 33' pool and massive surrounding deck.

 

Building a sweet clubhouse where the pool currently sits.

 

Patch and seal the asphalt driveway.

 

If I quit my job and focus on my projects I could maybe put a dent in it by the end of the year.

My wife and Stalin have a lot in common. If it were up to her I'd spend my Sundays this fall laying tile and driving nails instead of watching the Bills.

I'm getting a new garage door this week, the old wood one started coming apart back in April. Don't dare try to open it.

 

I'm also looking at redoing the layout of my closet.  If it comes out ok, I might do something with the wifes.  

 

What I should be doing is attic work.  We had some good size ice dams on the roof this past winter.  But I hate crawling around up there.  It would be quicker to hire someone, but a lot cheaper for me to do it myself.

This past year was an awful year for ice dams here. We didn't have any at our house, due the work previously put in by myself but it seemed like the entire neighborhood had 'em, some almost touching the ground.

 

Back when I repaired ceilings almost exclusively for a living, the years we had the right conditions for ice daming to be prevalent in homes that might not ordinarily experience the condition, those were banner years as far as income goes. I could relay some horror stories.

 

Yes, the attic work should be done.

Did my closet this weekend.  Got an organizer from HD, and while I like the layout, it still makes me thinking I will have to do some purging of clothes that "shrank in the dryer" over the years.
