The Large 2024 Residence Tasks on our listing

by Editorial Team

Completely happy New 12 months!! Even by we have now taken the final couple weeks offline, Chris and I’ve been speaking continuous about what tasks we’re enthusiastic about round the home. (We put out a venture listing yearly in January and look again on the finish of the yr to see how we did.) Right here’s the submit the place we shared our 2023 Residence Challenge Listing! A few of these tasks that we didn’t get to have rolled over to this yr. Whereas this can be a listing of bigger tasks we hope to deal with this yr, we purposefully tried to maintain it smaller (some years, there have been 15 large tasks on our listing!) so we will make room for smaller tasks, too. Whereas I like knocking an entire room out, generally it’s the little issues that make the most important influence–like portray inside doorways or weeding the backyard beds or purging a closet or lastly making a cushion for the window seats within the bonus room. So whereas we nonetheless have fairly a number of massive tasks on deck on this home, 1. we’re not in a rush to finish them and a couple of. we’d wish to have a greater stability of enormous a small to-dos on our listing. (Though that is simply the large tasks as a result of the small ones we wish to waft on–that’s half the enjoyable of a small venture!). Let’s dive in:

1. Major Lavatory and Closet

We’ve been engaged on designing our main toilet and closet over a yr in the past after which final yr, we began working with Distinctive Kitchens and Tub to begin making it come to life. We’ve had a number of conferences with our contractors about what’s doable (like, what IS the best choice for privateness with that window). I really feel like we’re type of to an precise place to begin! Actually! (Okay…however I do hold second guessing a pair issues eeeek) So you may anticipate that venture to begin soon-ish, fingers crossed.

Under you may see a rendering from Distinctive Kitchens and Tub for the course we’re headed!

2. The Mudroom! (Final yr, we known as it Cricket’s Room/Pool Lavatory)

That is undoubtedly a type of tasks I’m glad we took a beat on, as a result of its perform modified totally! This time, final yr, we had plans to renovate this right into a pool toilet. This area, which was our laundry room (you may see our new laundry room right here) is not going to be a pool toilet, however a mudroom. And that window goes to be an entry into the home! It’s already very underway. You’ll be able to see the plans and progress right here. Over the break it received drywalled and appears like an actual room.

3. Tile the Again Hallway

That door on the finish of the hallway is now a pocket door (that can doubtless stay open for probably the most half) and the tile flooring from the mudroom will lengthen into this again corridor that additionally connects each garages. We’re additionally portray all of the trim on this hallway the identical deep purple as the cupboards within the mudroom.

4. Cleansing Closet

Assist! This closet wants a lot assist! This can be a very shallow closet within the again hallway that we use to haphazardly retailer our cleansing provides. Its goal would be the identical, however the perform has GOT to enhance. That is technically a small venture, however we wish to add electrical to this closet to cost vacuums, and a light-weight too, so it’s on this listing so I can bear in mind to name the electrician. Ha!

5. Trim within the Entry.

I’ve wished so as to add a great deal of trim to our entry since we moved in and I hope this yr is the yr! There’s loads of wall area, so it is sensible for it to be field trim in all places, however I can’t shake the considered some wainscoting in a COLOR all through the entry. Nonetheless stewing on that.

6. New Home windows

The entire home windows are authentic to the home and never power environment friendly in any respect. The seals are damaged and within the mornings we will see cloudy condensation making its approach in. In March, we began researching new home windows, had all of our present home windows measured and found which of them we might simply exchange the sash kits on (extra funds pleasant!) and which home windows want changed totally. Then it was time to decide on a coloration and that’s the place we received held up. I really need black inside!! I didn’t suppose I might, however I’m so drawn to it I’m not going to struggle it. However the exterior of the home windows we have now struggled with. We chosen a coloration that the home windows got here in, however our HOA wanted the paint coloration code after which we received to considering–we have been type of deciding on a ok coloration as a result of that’s what was accessible (sure). Would we be higher off getting home windows that you just simply paint the precise coloration you need? (I believe so). They’ll take 20+ weeks to get in, so we’re ordering them quickly!

7. Rec Room 

This room went from being our crew workplace (earlier than shifting that off-site), to the playroom and now it’s actually evolving into the rec room as our women become older. We received a big sectional on the restoration {hardware} outlet final month. It has a big TV, that’s used to play video video games. And for Christmas, we received our household a enjoyable double shot basketball recreation! Nevertheless it’s all a little bit mishmashed along with a reasonably stale backdrop. We would like this to be a enjoyable hangout spot for our household, but in addition the ladies and their associates for a very long time. I’m considering wooden partitions could be so fairly in right here!!
