If you’ve seen picture of my house you’d realize it’s fairly small and has a LOT of possibilities. We have a huge yard but a good portion of that in the back in a septic tank so we can only build a little bit to the back, to the sides and in the front.
We’ve talked a lot about things we want to do and here are some of them. We have no idea when we’ll have the resources or opportunity to fix anything but for now we’re trying to work on our finances.
First is definitely the bathroom since right now it’s a stand-up shower with very little room to move. I cannot shave my legs or do much else in there now, which can be frustrating to say the least. Also the hot water heater is only 30 gallons and often runs out while taking a shower. We hope someday to make the bathroom bigger and at least make a bigger shower if not have a bathtub.
I know we’d like to install a real dishwasher because right now we have a portable dishwasher. The water heater right now is in the cabinet right next to the oven and ideally we’d love to put a dishwasher there. If we could figure out another option for the water heater it probably wouldn’t be too difficult but since we don’t have a basement it’s tricky.
We would still like to install some kind of carpeting in the 2 extra rooms, put some kind of tiling also in the kitchen and the mud room. I had no idea how expensive and how much hard work doing flooring was…it’s worse than painting. Oh and I need to still paint the office and the mud room.
As far as building more onto the house, we have no idea. I’ve brought up building a 2nd floor but he likes having it all on 1 floor. We could build off more either to the front or side ways and I’d probably do towards the front and maybe towards one side.
I love having lots of possibilities and having new projects to keep me busy.Ã‚Â It’s amazing to start a project and see it come alive in front of you.Ã‚Â We first painted the living room and as the color came to life it was so wonderful.
Time for another trip to Home Depot!!
