Martha, I thought you were in prison?Originally Posted by applesauceJohn, can you come over to my house and help us finish our projects? The list is 2 pages long! We live in a really cool flat/slant top, early Eichler rancher. It is a funky home in an older neigborhood, but some of the issues we have run into while fixing it up are crazy. Anyway, here are some of the things we've tackled in the past few years:
Took out vynil kitchen floor and painted the concrete.
Painted everyroom in the house 3 times...or more until the colors were just right.
Ripped out tons of thorny bushes and landscaped. Paid someone to put in new lawns and sprinkler systems (worth every penny!)
Built a sandbox for the kids.
Spent 10 hours changing the front door lockset (we looked like 2 morons)
Changed two of our homes 3 house letters...can't find the pewter toned screws for the third letter and my husband refused to put it up without them.
Started refinishing our kitchen cabinets last summer but haven't had time to finish.
Fixed massive wall cracks.
Ripped out half the bathroom now we need someone to put it back together.
Wood Floors - Paid Someone
Electrical -replaced lights, switches, outlets, added new lighting, etc. - Paid Someone
Too many things still on the to do list so I will stop. By the way, I love every second fixing up our home. Sense of pride you know!
