House Plans 2012

In the 5 months that we have had access to our house (we have lived in it for 4), the following things have been taken care of:

  • the most dramatically overgrown bits of the garden trimmed and cut back
  • XXL King Kong composter set up
  • some of the electrical wiring jazzed up
  • master bathroom completely remodelled
  • master bedroom painted
  • guest bedroom painted
  • living room feature wall painted
  • ceiling lamps installed everywhere
  • outside basement stairs re-concreted in places (old frost damage)
  • all door locks changed
  • kitchen painted
  • fuse box updated to current standards
  • basement organisation started
  • basement wall repainted
  • raised planter project started

This is what we’re hoping to achieve in 2012:

  • Complete raised planters (1 remaining out of a total of 4)
  • plant vegetable and herb yumminess in aforementioned planters
  • paint living room
  • paint study
  • paint basement rec room wood cladding (I haven’t blogged about this yet; let’s just say it’s not beautiful)
  • paint garden fence
  • plant hedge
  • have front door refinished and made more insulation efficient
  • repaint iron entrance railings by front steps
  • source new/old/vintage bed for master bedroom
  • wallpaper dining area feature wall
  • source new or vintage furniture for terrace and balcony

Yikes! Unrealistic much?

    My husband read my post and said “whoa, kind of scary when you look at it in list form!” 🙂

  4. Looks like you have a good plan in place and you are getting a lot accomplished. Steady Eddie gets the job done! Good work!
