  • We painted the living room and family room. Remodeled the family room as well. We have a bathroom that needs work badly. That will be next.

  • We will be doing the tub liner soon too. Did the roof & garage siding at end of summer. Hopefully the tub is it since we will be tapped out!

  • We started renovating the whole house when we bought it. The last project was closing in the top of the stair to help keep the heat and cool downstairs since we have no vents upstairs. Our next project will be fixing the part of the ceiling that came down in the utility room because a leaky room and the melting snow. And, we'll know who NOT to call back for roof repairs!

  • Last week we completely tore apart our back yard. We had someone come and redo everything to move our air conditioner to the other side of the house. My husband chipped out the gas line and moved it to the side of the patio, then poured a concrete pad for the grill next to it. He dug a new tortoise burrow and ran some drain lines from our irrigation. Then someone came and replaced all of the area that was grass with artificial grass (we live in the desert). Last, the pebblestone people have to come to pebblestone coat the new pad for the grill, repair the hole from the gas line, and clean and seal our patio. Then the whole yard will be done! All of our other projects were done before we moved in. We spent a month remodeling the house before we moved in.

  • a barbie house. Put up wallpaper and laid "tile flooring" (Tile looking wallpaper).
    Before that, painting. we rent so big improvements are a waste of money for us right now. Soon the bathroom will be repainted, the kitchen getting another much needed coat and adding a reading bench to the living room.

  • We did a facelift to our kitchen. We pulled off the 80's wallpaper and painted, repainted the cabinets and got new hardware and put in a new floor. It looks much better. I would like to redo the countertops but that would lead to other things I'm not ready to do yet. It would require replacing the stove plus to replace the counter top would cost almost $3000 and thats for laminate. The counter is in a J-shape.
