The Master List

Update (Nov. 6th): Joe says the house has to be finished (ie: fully functional and moved in) by Dec. 12th (the end of his finals week) or he is taking over :) The starred items below are the projects that need to be completed for him to consider it "done". 

This is the list of the all the permanent projects that have to be done. Big or small they go on this list. No projects will be deleted, only crossed off, so the list will always be growing. I will do my best to keep track of how much each project costs so I can list the price next to it. If it's labeled "free" it probably means I already had the supplies, not that it really cost nothing. Each crossed-off project will also have the date of completion listed after it, and will be linked to its corresponding post. So you will just be able to click on any completed item on the list and be taken straight to the post where you can read about how it was done. If you would like to know more about a project that was finished awhile ago and not posted about, just request a post about it in the comments.

If you are interested in seasonal/temporary projects (such as decorating for holidays, weatherizing that will be taken down when warm weather comes, etc) please see the page for "The Seasonal List".
