Thursday Thirteen #21

Thirteen things we still need to do on our "new house". They won't be done by the time we move in, because we only have a month left, but I wish they could be. We're doing everything ourselves, with occasional help from family members who pity...er...love us. Hopefully 1-6 will be done by the time we move in, but 7-13 definitely won't.

1. Finish making and installing trim and baseboards.

2. Replace all windows. (16) We've bought three, and will start on those soon. (This one won't be done by the time we move)

3. Block out A/C window and put in new A/C.

4. Finish putting shelving in closets and pantry.

5. Put kitchen cabinets and appliances back in place.

6. Finish out back rooms, which includes numbers 7-13

7. Take drywall off of walls and ceilings and replace.

8. Strip off old siding and put on vinyl.

9. Fix studs that need fixing.

10. Re-level concrete floors and install flooring.

11. Extend half-bath walls to make full bath.

12. Build walls for laundry room and install washer and dryer

13. Take out part of small room wall and make walk-in closet with remaining small room.

There are many, many more things we'd like to do, and many things we've already done. Those could easily be separate TTs of their own. Maybe I'll do that someday.

Go here to see more Thursday Thirteens.

I hate moving. We've been here for 2 years and still have lots of stuff to do.
When we moved in we had a window put in a storage room so we could have a sort of 6th bedroom, and we are still not done sheetrocking, much less a real floor, lol. We also need some sort of insulating in the floor because that child's room is right over our room, and, ahem, you can hear things. Like his alarm clock, yeah, thats it!

Wow! So many changes. How exciting. I don't remember,are there 3 bedrooms in the front and the master in the back? I'm trying to walk through it in my imagination and keep getting stuck.

Wow, lots of work. It'll be great when it's done, though, and satisfying (well, maybe not while you're doing it, but afterwards) doing it yourself.

Good luck!

Remodeling is so much fun, but with a time constraint it can be frustrating. Good luck with your changes! My TT is up here http://emeraldcityguy.wordpress.com/2007/05/31/thursday-thirteen-the-last-13-movies-ive-rented/

You are saving a lot of money knowing and doing this much yourselves. Good for you!
