Kersten - November 30, 2007

I’m putting this out there to hold myself to it: we want to move in on Dec. 15. That’s two weeks from tomorrow.

In those two weeks, we need to do the following:

Install and paint baseboards, install kitchen cabinet doors, build and install a concrete kitchen countertop, install a kitchen sink, install a kitchen sink disposal, install a kitchen tile backsplash, reseal the tile, build living room bookshelves and fireplace cover, install window coverings, find a plumber and get a washer drain line hooked up to finish the washer-dryer nook, purchase and install a refrigerator, install a bathroom sink and cabinet, install a bathroom mirror, find and install a bathroom light, paint interior of hall linen closet, install hall linen closet doors, install closet shelving systems in two rooms, touch up living room paint, paint inside of living room coat closet, rehang remaining doors, install new doorknobs, find and install kitchen lights, put up a shower rod, saw off and cover the toilet floor bolts, caulk baseboard, install threshold pieces between bamboo and tile flooring, replace the bedroom ceiling fan with something better looking, and clean everything.

Oh my.


  1. As soon as I posted that, I thought of eight more things to add to the list.

  2. Are you doing the concrete yourself?

  3. That’s a lot of stuff, but if you don’t sleep I’m sure you can get it done :) Hey, maybe by the time you finish your place I’ll hear back from the seller of the place I’m trying to buy. For some reason I think you have a better chance than I do.

  4. We are doing the concrete ourselves. We shall blog.

    Tai is pulling his first all-nighter tonight. I feel equal parts guilty and relieved.
