The Great House Project List of 2012


I think I've mentioned (a few times) that we have several large expenses coming up in the next few months, but I haven't actually said what they were.  Well, it seems that January is planning month for me.  I've worked out my budget and now I've worked my house project list for 2012.  The items on our NEED list will have to get done this year.  Top priority! And they are not fun items either. :(
I'm not sure everything on my wish list will get done (because I still want to have a life), but then again it is a "wish list".
So here it is!

NEED List

1.  New pool Liner (estimate of $6,500), possibly a new salt water generator ($2,500)
2.  New Windows (master bedroom, ensuite bath, kids beddooms) estimate cost $5,000
3.  New toilets master ensuite and kids/spare bathroom
4. Declutter the entire house!!!

So that's what I will be doing at some point this year.  I will update the links as I complete any projects.  I haven't up with a budget for each room yet, but once I do I will post it along with pictures of how the room looks like now.  So we can all oooh and aaahh as I complete projects.  I will attempt to most of the work myself on the "wish list" but I will outsource the work on the "Need list" because I have no idea how do replace windows or replace pool liners.  I will also attempt to re-use as much as I possibly can or source out from Goodwill,Habitat for Humanity or Kijiji.  That should save me a few dollars.

Do you have any projects going on this year?  Anything on your list that is not fun but needs to be done?
