The Game Plan

Our construction plans for 2014 have really changed.  Between delays getting the concrete poured (our contractor went to jail mid-project) and my broken ankle (out of the cast but still need a cane to walk) we are not going to accomplish everything we had planned for the year.  After a great deal of thought and discussion we have revised our plans and come up with the following goals for the remainder of 2014:
          • Pour driveway and sidewalk
          • Dry in garage
          • Frame kitchen addition
          • New roof on house (mandatory, the roof is leaking)
          • Replace doors and windows (hopefully)
          • Replace siding on house (maybe)
It's not a long list, but there is a lot to do. Here is where we're at so far:
Driveway and sidewalk - Scheduled to be poured on Friday

Garage - Still no roof and a long way from dried in
Kitchen addition - Not even started
Roof - We cut a hole in it for the porch gable end, but I don't think that counts as progress
Replace windows and doors - We have chosen the new door, but for now we get to look at this dingy white mess.
Siding - We removed some to build the porch.  It's pretty much a disaster

Given that I'm still pretty useless around the house this is a long list to accomplish before too much snow flies. We'll just have to see how far we can get before then.
