a to-do list

Even though we've only lived in our house about two weeks, we have already been talking about a lot of the future projects that we have for this place. One nice thing about our house is that it definitely needs some work, but it's very livable right now, which means we can work slowly and save up for big projects, instead of having to do anything immediately. Some of the houses we looked at would have required immediate attention. Our house's biggest problem is being dated. 
 I categorized our projects into small/ medium/ big. The small projects are things that require little-to-no money and won't take us too much time. These are the things we plan on tackling first. The medium projects will take a bit more planning, saving, and time so we'll do those slowly over time. The big project category is for all the things we would love to do but won't be jumping into for quite some time. We'll keep you updated on all our home progress, big and small and revisit the list every so often, just to see how we've been keeping up.
