What we accomplished in 2011

This year has ended with a bit of a fizzle in the home improvement department. After we finished staining the house this fall we subconsciously decided to give the house work a bit of a rest. It’s typical to end the year with a bang, but the last time there was a bang at our house we were left with this tree in our yard. Thanks Hurricane Irene.

We’ve started to keep a bit of a home diary that has all of the paint colors, contractor numbers, and rough dates as to when we did each project. It’s fun to look back and see how much we’ve accomplished.

The most noteworthy projects of 2011 included the hallway tile project (here)…

New appliances (here)…

A bathroom mini face lift (here)…


A  new dining room light fixture (here)…

A lot of tree removal (here)…

Staining the house (here)…

A new mailbox (here)…

And new insulation in the basement which I don’t have any photos of.  Howard tackled that messy project while I was away.

Overall I think it shaped up to be a very productive year.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!
