Saving and watching your money grow really is addicting! I feel so much better when I have my minimum in the acct and on top of the world when I meet my goal! But with constant home construction I often have to struggle to keep on top of it.
This year, like most, we have a lot planned for our little house. These lists do not account for any small things that may come up as we go.
Here is the list today—
Replace ceilings in two roomsReplace windows—first floor and basement
Finish up stairs
Fix fire pit area
Switch electric boxes
Painting house/garages/shedsFix driveway
Redo pool deck
We are purposely giving ourselves two years—two years to get all major things done and out of the way. From that point forward the projects will be few and far between!
I can’t wait to stand back and admire the house after these two years and really take in all we have done for our 100 yr old home and land!
It will have all new windows—upstairs/downstairs and in basement. It will have an upstairs with a bedroom, half bath and common room! It’s super insulated—blown in walls, floors and ceilings. It has a walk in closet/laundry room down stairs—laundry was in the pantry off the kitchen—and an entry room with a huge porch across the front! Let’s not forget the new metal roof with new gutters and a circle drive!
To think back to when we first bought this place 4 short years ago, it is amazing what we have accomplished! It was a one bedroom with tiny pantry/laundry area and a tiny front porch.
We are so proud of what love and hard work have built <3 font="">3>
