To-Do List

These are the tasks to be done in order to finish the house—assuming I have the funds. Inspections are highlighted in blue; the labor for items in yellow shifted from contractors to me in order to save money; and pink items are issues. Compare this list to my original drafted back in August 2017. Big-ticket items at risk are marked *.
