Big changes, and not just to the house

Progress on the house has been slow but that's about to change. I recently left my job and will be taking several months off to work on the house full time before searching for a new position.  We're in the fortunate position of having the house paid off and Luke's job covers our bills and leaves us with enough leftover every month to continue buying materials (albeit at a slower pace).  
This is a major change for me, but I'm excited about some time away from a desk job and I have no shortage of projects.  Here are just a few of the things I will be working on over the next few months:

Trimming out the first floor and refinishing the doors
Building a linen cabinet in the hallway Building a stair railing (apparently this one isn't quite up to code) Building a back deck Landscaping Finishing the laundry room Building a basement bathroom Hopefully having a more time to work on the house will result in more posts with progress.
