Project House Update: The List - Version 3.0

So, there wasn't a lot to show this year in terms of house updates. We did do a whoooole lot. Many projects, like the fireplace, have eaten up numerous weekends. Other projects, like the shop, have required so much planning that we haven't really seen any pay-off yet. And other projects, like getting the bricks resealed, took time and money, but the results are invisible to the naked eye.

Slowly, but surely, our house is coming along. We've finally have a significant amount of prep done and a bunch of our ducks in a row so that Version 4.0 of this list should be amazing.

If you'd like to go back and see what we've accomplished in previous years, click one of the older versions of this list below, otherwise, let's see what's changed!
