    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.

    Do you have a photo of it? Before and after. Sounds as if you've been very busy.

    I have.. I have posted them to my Facebook account, and sometimes on here.

    When I moved here, I took photos of every room and all around outside. As I do things I take pictures.
