The Honey “Do” List

So, even though we’ve done a LOT around here, there’s still more on the list. Everyone we know who’s already in the homeowner game warned me about this.

  1. LOL from Chez Money Pit! Patrick has become a pro at ceiling fan and light fixture installation. If you want a primer so Chris can join the “fun with electricity” club, let me know 😉

    (And in case he falls through your kitchen ceiling from the attic en route to the light fixture in question I can provide tips on overhead drywall work and ceiling patching…)
