Over 2018, we have an exhaustive list of house projects planned. The likelihood that we finish them all before the end of the year is a longshot, but I like to be ambitious! Some of these projects can be completed in a day, while others could take weeks.
In 2017 we: renovated the kitchen and two bathrooms (I promise to spill all the details soon!), replaced the front door, painted the house, studio, and garage, added a gym to the studio, removed a generator that didn't work, redid the courtyard and lounge area off the deck, added boxwoods to the front of the house, planted daffodils and rose bushes, and completed the fall 2017 ORC.
I made OUR 2018 list at the beginning of the year, see what we've accomplished so far!
