"The Five Year Plan"

My wife Mary and I purchased a 50 year old house in 2003 and set out to make it our home. It's still a work in progress. The photos you see are before and afters and I must say that I've gone through a couple sets of tools, but the Ryobi have held up and perform the best. We've upgraded and updated the landscaping, shrubs and flowers, added a new deck and rear porch, windows and more recently a new roof, new vinyl and alluminum wrap and shudders along with the front entry and storm door. Our next project is to knock out a wall between the kitchen and dining room to double the size of the kitchen and some new tools would help me perform much of that work. Kitchen cabinets, counter tops, appliances etc... As for the name of our project, it comes from our approach to projects, my wife says I work on a five year plan because some projects go longer than others. We have fun with it, but working full time and completing home projects can be a challenge. Thank you for your consideration.
