Home Improvements - Past and Future

April 20th, 2010 at 06:35 pm

We bought our home in 2007 and very slowly are working and adding little improvements, some are actual improvements to the home, and some are just comforts to us, but I still consider them improvements.

2007
New Roof
New Living Room couch and 2 recliners
King Mattress
Flat sceen TV and Stand
Patio Furniture

2008
Grill
New patio door blinds

2009
New hot tub cover

2010
New blinds for living room and bedroom
Remodeled downstairs bathroom...working on it!

We are trying to do projects slowly as we save up for them. No "KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES" for us!
We should be 100% done with the bathroom remodel within a few weeks at the longest. We are trying to decide what to tackle next.....here are some of our proposed projects:
Underground sprinkler system
New lawn mower
New washer/dryer
New dishwasher
New bedroom set
New family room furniture (downstairs)
Fix fireplace
Fix doorbell
Fix porchstep
Fix and paint lattice under deck
Put plastic under rock beds
Guess we have our work cut out for us!

    We do home improvements every year too! We've done the hardwood floors, backyard deck, granite countertops and this year we're painting the outside of the house, replace the garage door and the removal of the inground oil tank.

    We are VERY slow to buy things/improve. We've been here since 2001.

    The funny thing is we bought our "forever" home before we had kids and people always kind of turn up their nose and say, "Well, that's too expensive - you have to buy all that furniture and everything to fill up the house." Eh. I don't remember buying anything in particular but a lawn mower, though we doubled the square footage of our home. Of course, was happy to keep some rooms empty for the "future children."

    We just put in some final drapes a year or 2 ago. I would like to buy a security screen door for the front door. The house was bought new and hasn't needed much, but about 10 years in, we are starting on the repair/replace stuff. There's always something. If I did everything my heart desires, the day we moved in, we'd certainly be pretty broke. But one or 2 things a year is a good way to do it.

    Lucky for me, I have a handy man husband who is a builder. He built this house 15 years ago, and we have had to do very little to keep it up. The yard work takes the most time cause we have 2 acres of lawn.
