It is time to set up the agenda for the next restoration trip, but this time we have a mix of chores. Some require no money to complete and other chores do require a heftier budget. We are at a point were some things have to be done first before continuing with some parts of the restoration and many of them are expensive. Since – amazingly – the roof is not leaking (the biggest price tag), we decided to do that later and attack other issues. Since we have to stretch the funds (playing by the rules is cash only), this agenda will be mixed and varied, with no particular day order, unlike past agendas. Hopefully, we’ll get there before winter.
Here is a list of some things that we will attempt on that week. This time, we don’t have to cut the grass since we hired someone who is doing the job monthly. We may have to trim some overgrown trees. This frees up an entire day and a half, so we can work on something else. We will work on these things:
- Set up part of the electrical
- Gut the bathroom
- Open the backroom floor and reinforce some woods
- Spray for bugs again (last time we found another black widow spider when Eddie picked up a cement block outside – he was lucky that his fingers were not underneath it)
- Patch up a wall
- Deliver some material there.
- Anything else we can work on if time permits.
I think this will keep us busy, but I am not sure that we will be able to finish everything on the list. Lets see how we do this time. As always, I will break down the cost and write a post plus pictures.
UPDATE 11/8/2012 – Due to the recent hurricane and setbacks we had to cancel this renovation until next year.
