When we bought our house 3 years ago, it was solid, well-built, but insanely outdated. Everything from the roof to the floors needed an update. We didn't really even have a formal to-do list in the beginning because, let's face it, it just would have been too overwhelming & disheartening! We just started chipping away at whatever we deemed important or needed to be fixed at the time...& that philosophy still stands today, although now I've actually put all of the remaining items down on paper...& it doesn't seem all that long anymore! (After the original list only read - 1.Replace everything in house.) I'll slowly recap all of the projects, & include before and after pictures, but this post is really about what still needs to be done. Below is a sketch of each level of the house, along with semi-condensed and vague lists of what needs to be done in each & every room. (The items crossed out are ones that we've completed just in the last few weeks...woohoo for progress!!!) Click on the picture for a larger image.
