Our next project will be to put sub-flooring down in our attic, which is currently just a crawl space. This will be somewhat of a challenge since some rooms have higher ceilings that have cut into the area, and there is a ton of insulation that needs to be re-distributed. We'll also want a light up there as well. In addition to the attic sub-flooring, two bedroom windows need to be replaced. They don't raise or lower well and they aren't well insulated.
I would surely love to take on a project that had some decorating potential but we are boring people. The prospect of more storage space does excite me as I've not been able to live as much of a stream-lined life as I'd imagined. A sparse existence just isn't me. So even though this is a "small life" it is a battle for me not to over-acquire. On the other hand, it's tempting to want to decorate and ignore mechanical/structural things. However, I sleep better at night knowing the house is taken care of as opposed to how nice it looks. I guess I won't be doing the stupid Wayfair, "I'm in debt but my house looks nice and the shipping is free" dance and will instead shuffle over to Home Depot and buy some plywood.
