With the hope that listing these home-improvement projects in a public space will inspire many motivational, “Is it done yet?” questions from friends and family, I present to you my always-increasing list of “Stuff I’d Like to Do to the House” :
Paint the front bedroom
Paint the bathroom
Install the chandelier in the kitchen, which first requires the conversion of two light fixtures, which first requires the addition of an attic crawl space.
New water line to the kitchen for the new refrigerator. (Also: Transport the new refrigerator.)
Running electricity to the “wine cellar” in the basement, plus a new door. Prerequisite: Stop the leak.
Chisel the paint from the crown molding in the dining room and living room. (Not from my own sloppy painting, of course. I just refused to cover old painting mistakes with new paint.)
Paint the small strip of drywall by the backdoor that I forgot when I originally painted the kitchen.
Paint the basement.
New first floor windows. Eight of them.
New electrical outlets in the living room and on the front of the house.
Outdoor faucet on the southwest corner of the house.
