Our Five Year House Plan

One idea that Ruth writes about in her book is to sit down with your spouse and draw up goals for various things in your life.  So my husband and I to sat down and came up a five your plan for our house.  We picked five years for our time line because my husband should retire in five years.  

We haven't decided if we want to stay in this house or downsize to a smaller house.  We do agree several things must be down before we sell.  

First on our list for this Fall is remodel both our upstairs bathrooms.  We put together a list of things to consider when we meet with a contractor...

Bathroom Ideas

1. Complete one bathroom at a time.  We must have one bathroom available for daily use.   Ideally we would like the project to be back to back so that we can just clean up the upstairs once. 
2.  All new upstairs doors Wood or White????? Still Deciding 
3.  Main Bathroom first because the shower leaks.
4.  Shut off values under the sinks.
