Hey guys, im getting into a pretty big project (as far as im concerned) so im coming in to say hello, and start doing some research. im buying a 1977 ranch style home on a nice corner lot, with a HUGE drive way. (enough to park 4 cars long, and 2 cars wide). its our first home, so were expecting a little bit of work is needed. things on the list. -Attic insulation replacement (there was a coon living up in the attic, and there is fecal matter EVERYWHERE) -Master bathroom shower hot water has very low pressure. (have no clue where to start on this one) -hot water heater needs to be replaced -all windows seals are "loose" enough to let some heat in -all doors need new seals, (garage door has NO seals, so much as light can come through the door.) -install a dog door in the backyard door -get a termite treatment preformed. -there is existing termites in the house, and were negotiating with the seller to repair the termite damage -need to replace all of the "soffit" intake vents for the attic. -install LED/Florescent bulbs around the house -install ceiling fans in the guest rooms obviously some things are more of a "do along the way" type projects. But im pretty anal about keeping the house cool in the summer, so the insulation, and cooling / heat rejection of the house is very important to me. as well as keeping the water out of the house. I do like conserving electricity using basic steps (converting all appliances/utilities to gas) and using LED bulbs / florescent bulbs in replacement for incandescent.
