Way back when we put together a 101 in 1001 house list. We made some progress, did nothing for months and then recently made a nice dent on the list.
New Couch April 2013
We needed a new couch because the old one was hurting Micah’s back and my hips. We ended up getting this from the Kasala Outlet (which we love and need to stay away from). We got a killer deal and the couch comes with a 5 year guarantee. Of course, when we put in the couch we realized we needed to rethink storage in the room. That’s a post for another time.
Install peep hole for backdoor March 2013
Why did it take us so long to do this? It took Micah 15 minutes to install a peep hole in a metal door.
Hire gardener for “neighbors” yard May 2013
The neighbors (my sister) actually did this. We are having her gardener build us another retaining wall. I hear it will be done by Wednesday. I can’t wait to see it.
Create salad box planter for deck (Moved to Alley Door), May 2013
We were going to do this for the deck but then decided front (alley side) door needed something. It was a great idea. We love the way it looks. This may be the bulk of our summer veggie garden. We planted 2 kinds of chard, 3 types of lettuce and some radishes. I took this picture last week and Micah says it’s already almost doubled in size.
Organize pantry, February 2013
I didn’t take the best picture because you can’t see the lazy susan but that thing is amazing. I put all the bottles on it. Now I can access any bottle easily (without taking everything out) and I have more room for containers. I want at least one more lazy susan for the vitamins in the bathroom.
Here is the before:
And the after:
Finish Earthquake kit, February 2013
This took a long time too. I want to do a post on this when I get home and can take pictures.
The next few items I want to tackle are:
55. Finish toilet area in master bath
68. Create organizations system for all upstairs closets - I already started on this.
88. Shampoo area rugs annually (x3)
How are you doing on your 101 in 1001 list?
