Happy House Anniversary

Two years ago we closed on our home and began what has turned out to be an endless "to do" list.  We have crossed a lot of items off the list...but home renovations are never complete!

We have tackled (or have paid to have done):
  • Paint all interior trim, walls and doors (there are still a few doors to go)
  • Replace carpet, sand and restain hardwood floors
  • Paint kitchen cabinets, new appliances, new countertops
  • Replace all light fixtures 
  • New chimney crown and replace the top 10 rows of bricks, installed new gas log set
  • Gut job on two bathrooms, including changing the footprint in the master bath
  • Landscaped front and side of house
  • Exterior power wash and trim painted
  • Removal of flagstone patio
Still on the list (of major things to accomplish):
  • Replace windows
  • Paint deck
  • Landscape backyard
  • Resheetrock garage
  • Refinish the finished basement
  • Refinish the finished walk-in storage closet
  • Finish painting the interior doors
And then I'm sure I'll find 25 more things to do around here!  Or maybe we'll go on vacation...

You should post the "before" shots again - everything you have done has made the house so pretty. And you're right, there are always projects to do. And when there aren't, it's time to move!
