Default Home projects

I bought my house three years ago. Haven't really had time to do much to it besides putting in a fence so the dogs don't get out and swapping out the toilet and sink in the bathroom.
Yesterday my wife decided she wanted to do a project. Long story short I spent the afternoon ripping up the carpet in the front entry and hall. This was probably the fastest thing I've done in the house that had the biggest impact on the looks.

Anybody else have any home projects going on?

We've been improving since we bought our house. Kitchen, basement, bathrooms, etc, etc. It never ends.

I've learned that women are great about starting projects, leaving me to finish them.

Or jumping into the middle of them and screwing them up...

She always has these ideas of what she wants to do. But I'm the one that ends up doing them because she "doesn't know how". We'll see of she actually tackles this one. I've already worked 33˝ hours this week and it's only Tuesday and it's going to keep going this way until February so she's on her own if she wants this done any time soon.
All she really has to do is sand the stairs and repaint them. She's going to pay someone to install the runner. I have a feeling I'll end up finishing it on a Sunday.

We bought our house 15 months ago. I took down a fence. I demoed the living room ceiling and had a contractor install 2 new support beams and reinforce the roof trusses. I had an electrician rewire my whole house to get rid of old knob and tube wiring. I put in new support posts in the basement. I have sanded and refinished the hardwood floors in the living room and dining room. I painted all walls and ceilings in the house. I completely remodeled the bathroom including doing tiling on the floor and the walls over the tub. I repiped all my water lines. I put new tiles in in front of the fireplace. I put in carpet in 2 rooms. I scraped and painted the roof overhang outside, on 1/2 of the house. I repaired all the mortar in my chimney up on the roof. Not to forget about all the small things along the way. I have a lot more projects planed but most of the biggest ones are done. Oh and I got my wife pregnant right after moving in so I also had to deal with a pregnant wife and now our 5 month old son.

Finally got around to finishing the stairs. Still need to open up that wall to insulate and get rid of that nasty wood paneling closet but one thing at a time.
