House Projects

Last night while sitting in the hot tub Mike and I talked about this up coming summer (yes ... planning for summer already) and what we have to get done. I think we will do a bit of landscaping (or relandscaping stuff we don't like) ... I'm going to order 5 new birch trees. We are going to cover or treat the cement deck out back - and build a slatted roof over it. I think we also need to re-paint the house this summer.

Sounds like a lot ... but hopefully we get started this long weekend (since it is warming up).

We have our house project list too. Somehow it got very long and highly ordered:
* Rebuild deck off of our bedroom (can't start until March, that is when Environmental Home Center gets in the decking we want)
* Paint second floor
* Replace second floor carpets (requires removing everything, including radiators and built in shelving)

Figure out back yard plan.

I like house projects, but looking at a big pile can be daunting.

We built a pergola (slatted roof free standing thing) last summer. It turned out great.
