My project right now is getting all the crap ready for a Christmas trip to California, but in the laundry room, all I have to do is get a counter top, mount the sink in it, hook up the sink, finish the cabinet doors, get my wife to paint them, mount them, and mount a clothes hanger bar.
There's another saga to be told regarding the counter top.
Once the laundry room is done, I'll be closing off the back end of the basement family room to make an electronics shop, which will include building a wall with a pocket door, a lot of cat5 wiring, RG6 wiring, 110VAC wiring, moving a furnace vent, tearing out a closet door, building computer shelves and other storage shelves, tiling the floor (asphalt, not ceramic), lighting, and probably a few other tasks I haven't bothered planning yet. The closet door I'll be tearing out is in the picture in the message describing the soffit, and the wall will be perpendicular to the wall with the door and stairs in the picture.
Then, I will finish the rest of the family room (shown in the picture I mentioned), making it into a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, changing the last step on the stairs into a landing (which also means modifying the bannister), decent reading lights, wiring the existing shelves for my decorative light collection, paint and carpet.
Then I get to work on my theater, which will include a lot of conduit for signal wiring, a dedicated power line, soundproofing the walls that are adjacent to other rooms including the ceiling, moving a furnace vent, building a riser for the back row of seating (it's just a love seat), and construction of equipment shelves.
Then I'll be building a linen closet in the extra bedroom, which is quite large, moving the wall between it and the hallway into the room about 18", finishing the walls, and building shelves and doors.
In the meantime, I'm sure we'll be tearing out a deck and filling in a lot of dirt so we can put in a patio (why people here have wooden decks that require annual maintenance is beyond me - they have weather
here) instead, lots of pathway construction and lighting.
I will be hiring someone to convert a window in the dining room to french doors, build a deck outside there, replace the roof, install gutter shields, and replace the siding and windows. I figure it'll come out to around $100,000 by the time we're done with the outside.
I guess I'll sleep when I'm dead.
