That's what I figured. Veneers don't look that old, they shouldn't be cracking and moving like that.

 

Some guys should stick to shooting big bucks and playing with cats....leave the home improvements to the pros!! :rofl:

Building my fireplace mantel right now.

Then have to dig up and repair a gutter/sum pump drainage pipe.

Then have to get lawn repaired from reno damage.

Then have to foam seal all around the house to address any bug entry points.

Then a bunch of tree cleanup from storm damage

Then move on to garage cleanup and organization, and hanging/reusing my old cabinets there

Eventually I'll get to the pool which didn't have it's cover removed last year...not sure what that will wind up looking like, I shocked the hell out of it before closing it before the reno...hopefully it shocks me back by being clear when I reopen it! :eek:

Then powerwashing my deck and restaining it.

 

Some day I'll get back to doing something fun :shakehead:

Sucks, I'm worn out...been going like this for over a year and a half straight.  

I'll be calling a tree guy...too much crap, bunch of pine, need some stumps ground, etc.

 

Forgot as I'm reading other people's lists...

- Bedroom closet shelving

- Pantry closet shelving

Never ends but the main thing is get as much done as you can before hunting season. I always make sure I’m done by September 1st. Sometimes unexpected things pop up like last October my well pump went but that was a 1 day project.
