Anyone have anything planned for this year? We've got a lot of stuff we'd like to do, not sure how much we'll be able to get done, though.
New flooring in our basement. We had it remodeled last year (I posted about it) but it flooded shortly thereafter and ruined the flooring. We've since had several iterations of "fixing" the basement leaks. It took 3 attempts, but it's finally fixed. It's been fixed for a while, but we wanted to go through several large storms without leaking before we felt comfortable putting the flooring in.
Finishing garage walls. The garage is currently unfinished inside. I've already got a supply of ceiling insulation panels (free) that will go up this summer. Also planning on putting up plywood or osb panels on the walls.
New fencing. We want to put privacy fence around our backyard and black aluminum fencing around the front. The current fencing is shitty chainlink. Our dogs bark at everything, so it's a pain in the ass when we let them outside and someone walks by on the sidewalk. Tall privacy fence will not only give us some privacy in the back yard, but also prevent the dogs from seeing everyone walk by.
New deck. It's small, so it would be cheap to replace as is. I'm considering expanding it, but it's not a high priority currently.
Built a fairly large deck last year and love it and I, too, have to do something about our fence. Need to replace a section, easy, and possibly repaint the wooden section until we decide what we really want to do.
*New roof on the screened porch. When we get a goose drowner storm it leaks but the rest of the time it is fine.
*Rework the yard. Put a new lawn in last year. Turned out...OK but not near my liking so I am going to work on it in sections this year so the whole thing wont be out of commission at the same time.
*New fire ring and fire section. Just didnt get around to it last summer.
*New paver walkways. Didnt do anything with the ones that were here when we bought it last year but this year it is a priority, along with fill dirt around it.
*Run power to the 'barn'. At one point my man cave and boat will be in there but right now there isnt even any power to it.
*Raised flower beds/garden.
I got a lot done last summer when I took 4 months off of work but this year who knows what I will get to. Starting this weekend, we have a baseball tournament every weekend through mid-july and then Ill be in Louisiana for a month so it looks like its Mon-Thur evenings to get it done!
