June 2016, I became a homeowner. I love it. I have always said that this is "my 5 year house" My plan is to buy a house on a lake. So, this house.... When I was looking for a house, it needed at least 2 bedrooms and either a garage or space for a garage. I now have a garage. Since being here, I have done quite a few renos. Some are minor, others are more major. They include: Major A new roof, New siding, New Garage, Painted most of the house. knock down old shed (neighbours and city were happy.) Minor: replaced railing and steps of my deck repaired spotlit on overhang paint basement floor, and lay down some vinyl tiles where there was none. fixed holes in drywall by a window new carpet on stairs I still have a long list of things I will be doing, but I also have a list of things that I will Not be doing. I will not make the list here, but they are things that are going to be costly, and I know I cannot do them. If my plan of this being a 5 year house falls through, the house, property and location are good for the long term too. but those other things will have to be done. I am planning my future renos based on these plans.
