    Summer Projects 2018

    I have reached a point where after 12 years, I feel I have kind of "caught up" with my outside projects. What is left is stuff that "could" be done, not "has" to be done. So I went back and looked at the 2017 version of this thread.

    I said, "I will be calling someone to pump my septic tank as well, I need to paint some trim on the house and garage, and finish a flagstone walk and add a yard drain by the garage. Inside, we need to replace the shower and tub insert in the main bathroom. I'm not sure they used blueboard when they did the walls and ceiling, so it may end up being a partial gut job. The vanity could stand to be replaced too. While we're at it, I'd like to see a new floor with in floor heat added. And if we're feeling rich, new counters and sink in the kitchen. The bathroom work, my dad has volunteered to do. He is retiring on Friday and my folks will be here all summer. I didn't argue with him."

    The only thing still hanging is the trim painting, but my dad wants to do it....so it's all his. How's it going for everybody else?????

    It was a big list, and an expensive one too. But we had been saving for the bathroom and kitchen work for years. We love the improvements, and that we paid cash for them.

    Stay afloat!!!!

    A project I've been putting off since we moved into this house over two years ago...
    The front steps weren't poured correctly and water seeped under the ceramic tiles. Several horizontal tiles are loose, and many vertical ones have severe lime stains. I can't find a match for the 17 year old color & pattern. Replacing everything (>350 square ft including the porch) is too expensive. No "pro" wants to do a repair. I'm going to try lifting & regrouting the loose tiles and sealing joints for the others. If I crack a couple, it means a complete redo. This would be a good time for my perfectionist wife to visit her mother. Not gonna be fun in the Florida sun...
