QQT for this

I am putting a Quality – Quantity – Time marker on all my 43 Things so I can track if I really did them or not.

My QQT for this: remodel the basement bathroom for $5000 or less by Rosh Hashanah 5768 (September 12, 2007). This would include at the very least replacing the shower and redoing the sink (maybe with a vanity, maybe just a pedestal)

Fantastic idea...

Such a simple plan doesn’t involve an architect, and probably doesn’t involve getting city permits, either.

...as opposed to my remodel, completed in March 2006, which took four months and cost 10 times that amount. I added a bathroom. That process involved an architect, and brought city inspectors into play. MUCH more complicated.

No

We got a couple of bids, but never did anything. The cost of construction materials was too high at the time. Now that the cost of materials has dropped a little, and contractors might be a little bit more hungry, we might go for this again.

Frankly, the kitchen, which was relatively newly remodeled when we moved in 15 years ago, could use a facelift, too. Well, at least new countertops. There’s also some minor improvements we need made to the other two bathrooms. Plus a motley list of miscellaneous items that are too little to be projects on their own, but when coupled with everything else, would be worth doing.

We figure we have five more years in the house. So that’s five more years to amortize the costs of home improvements.

In my CFT?

I believe in hiring out things that aren’t in my immediate area of expertise.
