- Paint the front door (soon)
- Replace the mailbox (soon)
- Landscape around the front porch (probably this fall)
- Tear down the back porch and rebuild a porch or stone patio (next year)
- Plant a few trees in the back yard (next year)
- Landscape the existing flowerbed in the backyard (soon)
- Plant a garden (depends on when everything we want to grow needs to be planted, might be next year)
- Get furniture for the front porch (not a priority)
