Chore Status 8/8

Decided because it seems as I get things done I’m also adding more things to do, that I should repost this every Monday.

Living Room: Sand, clean, knot Sealer Living room wood walls are done! Primer (1st coat) all of the front wall, behind the hearth, hearth to back corner, small piece on kitchen wall, stair walls, room side, pantry/office wall, pantry door trim, office door trim, bath wall, bath door trim, closet wall, closet door trim, bookcase wall, kitchen wall, entry wall (all wall board). Clean/Spackle (wallboard) pantry, bath, closet, bookcase, kitchen, interior stair/entry walls. Sanding/Knot sealer: door trim: pantry, office, bath, closet. primer (2nd coat) : kitchen wall, oak wall, front wall, wallboard walls.  Caulk: entire room trim to walls and floor. Final Paint: entire room, entry, stair piece and hall. Cull/clean: get chair  & fabric to Jeannie’s for reupholstery. Window replacement on north side. (long term) Sand and redo floor.

In broad terms what remains in the living room prepainting effort: the remainder of the pantry wall, bath wall, closet wall, hall wall, the kitchen wall, the interior stair wall are all wallboard and still need to be cleaned, spackled and primed. The door trim on those walls all needs to be sanded, cleaned, knot sealed and then primed. These walls need to be primed: kitchen wallboard, hall, closet, bath, pantry, interior stair/entry.

AFTER I get everything primed at least once, then the final painting can occur. I need to remember to buy a pint of oil paint/gloss paint for the trim as well as the gallon of other paint for the walls. I didn’t knot seal the “stair rail” btw on purpose as we’ve all along planned to redo it. If the knots shadow out, then it’s another reason to do what we’ve planned anyway, and less work now — and I’ve got plenty!!!

Hall: Replace smoke detector (future). Take down mount for star curtain. Clean wall, spackle as needed, tape baseboard. Prime, sand and paint.

Kitchen: (Cull/clean) 2nd half of fridge, 2nd half of freezer, make freezer inventory.Get the boxes out of the way so you can pull the table out, get antique table out. Clean the marble table, move the sewing machine.Unfold the rug. Get the 2nd Hoosier into the kitchen. Get the new freezer in the kitchen. Sell the old smaller fridge. Dismantle the f’n 30 square foot counter and redo it to something saner!!! (long term) Pull the windows, put in the new wall and windows.

Laundry: (Cull/clean) clothes, backlog (again). (longterm) Get the switch thing set up so you don’t have to pull the dryer out anymore!

Bathroom: (Cull/Clean) corners, window, closet floor clear out. Mail or distribute presents.

Bedroom: (Cull/Clean) get couch downstairs. When reupholstered chair returns, put it here, not living room.

Attic: Get cabinets in there and stuff organized. First 4 cabinets are here now, need to get the space cleaned, and them placed in the attic, then stuffed with stuff, and clean the area for the next ones. Get the 2 base cabinets in there (or elsewhere) and the cabinet from the storage. Get the bookcases from office 1 into the attic. Get the bookcase boxes on top of the cabinets, when they fit.

Office 1: Get the first batch of craft supplies to the shop. Get the counter cleaned. Remove everything from the bookcases on the north wall and get the cases moved into the attic. Get dresser out of there for SIL to take home. Bring in the new dressers? Clean where the dresser was.

Office 2: Clear off the blue desk. Sell/cull items waiting for that.

Dining Room: Unfold the rug when the oak table is removed. Take down candlabra, sell. Paint china cabinet and relocate it and the 2 Hoosiers.

Storage: Get the table to the person who owns it. Remove the folding screen. Remove the 2nd Hoosier for the kitchen and cabinet for the attic.

Garden: Continue, finish and keep up the weeding, so that the weeds don’t take over the yard and next year’s vegetable garden is a disaster accordingly! [Worked on this 7/24-5]

Storage: Get at least 5 boxes out and deal with the stuff in them. Move to a smaller storage unit 10 x 20 instead of 10 x 30 which is what you have now.
