Huzzah! New question in the inbox! This one comes from my friend Sarah:
I’m so excited about your new house, which makes me curious: What kinds of projects do you have planned for this house? (Or maybe you are choosing to leave it “as is.”)
I’m so glad you asked. Seriously! because I am totally in love with my new house and I can’t wait to show it off in a middle-class consumerist kind of way. Here it is again:
We’ve got all sorts of projects planned, and we’re still having serious discussions about whether ReubensCube is the best place to share that info, or whether a new spinoff blog is in order. Houseblogs are awesome!
Because I’m all about starting new online projects with gusto and then mostly ignoring them later. Oh, and in addition to the possible new house blog, I’m also starting a new urban policy blog (this one is a group blog with a dozen other folks – more on that later).
Anyway, off the top of my head, the To Do list includes:
- paint everything
- kitchen remodel
- bathroom remodel
- construct closet shelves
- sand wood floors
- new tile in fireplace
- new tile in entryway
- refinish front door
- jack up one side of the garage 6″ and try and level the floor
- add a shower to the upstairs bathroom
- add a shower to the downstairs bathroom
- re-insulate attic
- replace all water lines
- fix sump pump
- fix range hood
- regrade exterior near foundation
- rewire garage
- move electric panel
- spend time with my daughter
I just have to include the last one or else I’ll forget with all those house projects going on.
