Our journey to household awesomeness

Baby List!

The pile keeps growing.

We’ve got a whole passel of things that we need to get done, with a tentative deadline of July 23rd. Totally abandoning the “official list“, there a much more urgent roster of items that really needs to be done before we’re graced with Baby Smannon. Like to hear it? Here it go:

  • Finish electricity in the garage
  • Tear out house carpeting (gross and really old)
  • Build a wall in the living room to close off the basement from the upstairs of the house
  • Install wood floors
  • Replace interior doors
  • Insulate outer wall of basement
  • Repair or replace basement exterior door
  • Insulate floor of kitchen and bathroom
  • Install smoke alarms
  • Paint/decorate nursery

We also have a list of “things that would be nice to finish but aren’t as urgent”:

  • Rebuild basement stairs
  • Paint/prettify basement stairs
  • Install ceiling fan in living room
  • Paint office

There are a few items we want to buy, too, like a new dishwasher, but those will probably be at the mercy of the projects that actually need to be done ASAP. Meanwhile, we recently bought all of the flooring (goodbye, tax refund!) as well as a new couch and chaise lounge, which Kevin is modeling above, and which will probably become my nest during my maternity leave.
