Welcome to Life on Little Pond.
This journal is to follow the renovation of and adventures in our new home, located in the pine woods of a rural county in Georgia. We have 6.11 acres, 2300sf home, and a...little pond, lol.
The pond has fingerling bluegill in it, a few a bit larger (palm sized, maybe) and one or two eating sized catfish. We closed on it today, and we have a lot planned for this place, so let's get started!
Here's a list of some things we need and want to do:
Fix a single piece of loose siding
Repair screen on window
Add a shop for DH and a carport
Cornice Board and window treatments (shades, sheers)
Window treatments (see above)
Window treatments (see above, these are all the same)
BR 1 and 2
Tiles (repair only)
Countertop repair (reglue laminate)
Fix gas fireplace?
Tile repair around tub
New light fixtures above sinks
New light fixtures above sink
Repair edging of counters
Repair Hot water heater cover/sheetrock
That's the short list, lol.
This home was built in 2008 (the year our son was born, actually), and really only needs
cosmetic work to freshen it up. Aside from the A/C, which will be new, as the previous owners
stole the original when they left. Ugh.
Stay tuned, it will take a while (we can't do much until we close on our current home around Aug 15, then it really kicks into high gear, but we're going to have a ball!
Welcome to Little Pond!
