Tuesday Open Thread

Happy Tuesday!

Let’s talk home improvement. As y’all know, our whole summer was consumed with construction. It was noisy and dusty and a general pain in the ass, but the end result was a new bedroom and office, a remodeled master bath and new carpets and baseboards. Just over 200 square feet of additional space, but it has made a world of difference. We initially planned to buy a bigger home, but this was a win-win: stay in the neighborhood we love, plus we refinanced and paid down the mortgage a bit for a lower payment. And it was still much cheaper than buying a new home. SWEET.

What home improvement projects have you completed? Which projects are you hoping to tackle soon? Any lessons learned or advice to offer?
