Sometimes when we are feeling down and like we haven't accomplished anything here, it's helpful to look at old photos of the place. When we first moved in someone recommended making a punch list and crossing things off as we completed them. This way we could look at the list and see all the items crossed off and feel good about progress. Don't know where that list is anymore....must've buried it in a drawer in a fit. So....what we've completed:
New block wall around entire property perimeter.
Three custom steel gates.
Two new ACs
Five new skylights
Five new Low-E sliding glass doors
Tankless Hot Water Heater
New buried Irrigation line
New sewer line (partial, at City connection)
Replaced master bedroom insulation and interior walls.
And sometimes it's not all about replacing but also removing:
Demo pond that consumed over half the yard
Removed 7 trees
Removed many, many stumps
Demo wood planter in kitchen
Demo rotted wood perimeter fence
So, we're doing stuff, right?!
