2011 House Goals: How we Stacked Up

Well, we got a lot done in 2011, but we didn't really stick to the house goal list

As you can see, there aren't too many check marks.

1. Animal room and back bathroom redo

Clearly we got 1/2 of that project accomplished. The other half, well, our bathroom is still gutted. So...

2. FINISH laundry room

I'm guessing that because we still have the flooring we bought 2 years ago still sitting in it's packaging that this room isn't done. Just a guess.

3. Get house painted

Ooooh ooooh oooh we got that done!

4. Back fence

Uhhhh, nope.

5. Drainage issues in the back and under the house

It hasn't rained as much this year...

6. TV room redo

Unless you count this as redone? You don't? Oh. Well, then, no?

7. Build a fence for dad and Wendy

Thank god that's done.

8. Work on dad and Wendy's nook

Which I'm sure that meant finishing it out and building a cabinet for it (and by "sure" I mean I know that's what it meant) but we did build this cabinet

9. Fix mom and CBH's front stoop

It's almost done.

10. Reroof mom and CBH's garage

Nope, not even close.

But we did add a basement shear wall

And install his and hers pull up bars

You know, for those great, sexy dates with your husband when you do pull ups together (yes, that's my 60 year old step dad doing pull ups)

Now, there was something else we got done this year...oh right, the pergola

And we started work on the front room too

Oh yeah, and maybe this patio?

Phew, I was beginning to feel like a bit of a slacker. Then I remembered that the patio weighed in at over 200,000 pounds of work.

Maybe this year we'll stay a bit more on track :) (but most likely not) HAPPY NEW YEAR!
