We have a ton of unfinished projects and things we'd like or need to do around the house. We are working on a budget/savings plan so we can hopefully accomplish some of them. My dh asked me to go through and see what I want done first. That's not easy for me. I want them all done right now at the same time! LOL Really though its hard for me to say what should go first. How would you decide? Would you do the easiest first? The least expensive? What you want the most? Deciding what I want done the most is hard for me but I think its a new kitchen. Our cabinets are really old and falling apart and so is the counter top. I'm embarrased to do so but here is the list of projects. We are really not that handy but have been trying but often run out of money or get in over our heads and give up.
Kitchen-new cabinets, counter top, stove/oven, dishwasher. Take out un-needed doorway and drywall over. The fridge is a year old so it good. The floor is fine but if we are replacing everything else it should probably be updated too. New lights, sink, and a backsplash would be nice. New sliding doors to backyard.
Dining room. flooring... Its currently subfloor with a large rug on top. Paint dining room. There is just primer on the walls/ceiling now.
Upstairs-New flooring in upstairs bedrooms and hallway. I'd like to get rid of all the old carpet and go with a hard surface floor which would be better for our allergies. It would require subfloor be put down in hall.
Fix plaster wall in school room/office. Paint.
New flooring in master bedroom. Paint wood trim.
Deck on back of house.
Fix drywall in bathroom and trim out door. That room is so close to done.
Basement- hang drywall on walls and ceiling and paint.
Fix or replace furnace. Have proper heat runs put in basement.
Finish basement bathroom and utility room. They need framed out and drywalled. Bathroom needs sink and shower, and lighting & flooring.
Fix fence gate.
Paint downstairs entry and upstairs hall.
Ugh, I think I'm forgetting stuff. Ok, that is a lot and why I'm overwhelmed just thinking about it. I'm tempted to just print out the list, stick it to the wall and play "pin the tail on the donkey" with it.
