Decided because it seems as I get things done I’m also adding more things to do, that I should repost this every Monday. Also, that I should remove from this list the things I’ve done, so that I start each week with just the still pending list. The old list is available, with the struck through text, on the last list!
- Spackle (
2nd coatand as needed): kitchen, interior stair, stair rail. Primer (1st coat): kitchen wall
- Sand: as needed
- Primer (2nd coat) : wallboard walls as needed, log walls
- Caulk: DH has done between the logs on the wall from the door to the entry wall and the short section of log wall on the kitchen wall. Remaining:
oak wall from corner to window, from window to stove, from stove to other window, from 2nd window to corner, remainder of street wall, wall board walls.
- Final Paint: entire room (street, oak, kitchen, bookcase wall, hall walls (closet, bath, pantry), stair wall, entry, stair interior wall, and stair rail.
- Cull/clean: get 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 kitchen wall needs to be
cleaned, spackled and primed. These walls need to be primed: kitchen. Between the logs looked awful and was impossible to paint, so we’re caulking between the logs. What’s been done: from the door to the corner, the short log/kitchen wall, corner to the stove on the oak wall. What needs to be done: stove to street corner, street corner to the door.
AFTER I get everything primed at least once, then the additional spackling, patching, between log
painting, caulking and other caulking can be done. Then we sand, again. Then we primer, again. THEN we paint! I need to remember to order the paint! Measure room and furniture. Make a floor plan so you move the furniture and books ONE more time, not more than that!
Hall: Replace smoke detector (future).
Kitchen: (Cull/clean) Get the 2nd Hoosier into the kitchen. 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. Finish the sink window trim.
Laundry: (Cull/clean) (longterm) Get the switch thing set up so you don’t have to pull the dryer out anymore!
Bathroom: (Cull/Clean) corners, window, clear out.
Bedroom: (Cull/Clean) get couch downstairs. When reupholstered chair returns, put it here, not living room.
Attic: Get the 1 base cabinet in there (or elsewhere) and the cabinet which canme from the storage. Get the bookcases from office 1 into the attic.[1 base cabinet used in kitchen 8/20]
Office 1: . Get the counter cleaned. Remove everything from the bookcases on the north wall and get the cases moved into the attic. Bring in the new dressers?
Office 2: Clear off the blue desk. Sell/cull items waiting for that. (long term) Move the office function to the other office.
Dining Room: Take down candlabra, sell. Paint china cabinet and relocate the 2 Hoosiers.
Storage: Remove the 2nd Hoosier for the kitchen.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.
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, week of 8/20, 8/27]
