What’s that expression? “If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans” or “plans are meant to be broken” or “the best laid plans…” or any other expression having to do with plans that you see falling apart in every direction? That’s where we are right now with our 2017 house plans and it’s only the first weekend in February. I wrote about several ideas we had in mind for 2017 assuming that we would get to a few but probably not all of them. Seeing as how we were told yesterday that we need to replace our entire roof soon (yikes!), it’s looking more and more like we won’t get to most of them. We’ve made some headway on the master bedroom closet doors (we are not DIYing them after all and, thanks to the roof, might not be able to afford to do this project; this is a post for a later date) and we are starting on the office wall unit. So next on the list is creating a pantry and a wine cellar, aka making the basement less scary.
A couple of weeks ago, I went over what I thought were the top five house projects of the past year. They all had to do with bringing in color and creating more function out of our cozy spaces. For 2017, we plan on doing absolutely nothing.
HAHAHAHA, yeah right.
Here’s a list of the top five projects I am planning for 2017 and each is rated on a scale of 0 to 5, 0 being the littlest chance of this project actually getting done and 5 being the highest chance. Starting in January, over the course of several weeks, I’ll detail the reason for each project and share design ideas too.
