1) soffit vents (working on it, almost done)

2) exterior trim (3/4 done)

3) interior trim - not going to be finished by me

4) re-carpet the main living spaces - not going to be finished by me

5) pull the entire kitchen apart, replace the vinyl floor with tile or good kitchen flooring, add a dishwasher (requires adding a bit of wall memeber and the electrictal/plumbing/dry wall) new cabinets -- this may be a project that Mother and Bill inherit or i'll never get out of here - time will tell.

6) add a house H2O filter system- not that big a deal

So heres the story...mom took care of me for a long time when i was struggling with Crohn's. This is her house, and over the years it kind of got a bit run down and was lacking in some much needed upgrades. We knew for sure that there was some real issues with the house when the back bedroom floor fell away from the baseboard 5 inches and you could punch to the outside world! The structure of the house was compromised by termite damage and water damage cause by a drainage issue and the previous owner letting a massive leak behind the washer go un-controlled. I don't have the early pictures - i wish i did - as the back bedroom had to have the entire floor, sub floor, and all the floor joists replaced. the 'siding' of the house is little more than crushed paper and retains water something terrible. The remodel includes replacing the siding, upgrading the wiring(the damn breaker box was on the outside of the house), gutters, soffets, insulation upgrades, 1/4 of the floor joists in the house replaced, totally gutting the bathroom, building a new kitchen, replacing all the doors and windows...So yeah its been a bit more that i can handle both fintually and i seem to be the only one actually working on the damn thing...but i am getting there.
