To-Do List

As of the end of the financial nightmare, these are the tasks to be done in order to finish the house—assuming I have the funds. Inspections/tests are highlighted in blue; labor for items in yellow shifted from contractors to me (and my help) in order to save money; pink items are issues. Items marked * were unplanned/unexpected. Also see Milestones.
