    I'm going to put a door shoe on my front door. There is a 1/8" gap at the bottom that allows insects to enter the house. This probably isn't a what you would call a project, as it will only take about 10-15 minutes, but it's the next thing on my list. I picked up the "shoe" at Wal-Mart, I can't remember the exact price, but it was less than $20.

      Thank you, we've done it in our kitchen so it should be pretty easy down the hall way. Will post pics smile

    We are in the process of renovating a foreclosure we bought last year - we are pretty much redoing every inch of it from one end to the other yikes)  I think our next project is to redo the kitchen.

    Alvairs-

    Vacuum the carpets.  My wife knows not to let me have any power tools.
    Make the call, write the check - that's me.

      MMMM. You are one those "tool time" kinda guy (lol) Just make sure all the valuable pieces are off the table before you start vacuuming.
      Have a great day.

    I hate home improvement projects; I'm so unhandy. Frankly, I don't like much of any work around the home including lawn care. And I'm too cheap to pay anybody else to do work, too. I shouldn't be a homeowner at all...

    Putting down new flooring in my kitchen.  It has been a very long time and it is in bad need.  Also need to paint the interior of the house.  Wow...I could go on and on.  Tons of projects need to be done.  Our house is an older home and we've lived there 13 years.  Just when you get around to each room after so many years, it's time to do it again.

      Yes i know how that is,  but i find that planning each task does speed things up as well as keeping me organized.

    Where to start, that is the question. I actually have a list on the frigerator smile    But I am thinking spray painting the outside basement doors, scrapping and re-painting the window frames (outside) then there is the matter of the missing baseboards in about half the rooms, there is still 3 rooms that need painting, one has wallpaper that must go first, then there is installing handrails....there is plenty more but I do not even want to get into the electrical and the plumbing..yet....LoL...

      Yes curb appeal is very important in the neighborhood. Start outside in, then schedule a task  for each day, to gradually get the work done on the interior.  You will get through it as long as you have a plan. You can do it, good luck.
