The List

We are in the middle of a dozen projects here at the Stalnaker house so I thought this would be a good time to share our to-do list. This is by no means everything we want to do and many are long (long, loooooong) term projects.

I got this list format from John & Sherry at Young House Love who keep a running document of their to-dos. This makes for an easy place to see the big picture but also all the details of each project. I like to be crazy organized and I love lists so I wanted to give it a whirl. Here goes!
