  1. Good list. It’s not too ambitious, but it gives you some things to focus on. I will publish my goals for this year tomorrow. There aren’t many, but they are big ones!

  2. All excellent projects – some easy, some not – but all will continue to improve your already gorgeous house!!
    I still think you might consider making the area under your deck into a screened porch. The decking would give you shade when it’s too hot to sit in the sun, and it would also give the cats a giant cateo! Fun!

    • We’d have to find somewhere else to store the motorcycles in the winter. It would be very hard to screen it all in, as it’s a strange shape + there’s a stone wall on one side, a picket fence on one side, and a tall fence on the other side.
