I can’t believe it! Spring is almost here, and to me that brings on the desire to change or spruce up my living quarters every year. BF and I discussed it and this year we DEFININTELY need a new deck or one of these days someone is going to fall right through ours! We also would really like to install a half bathroom in our currently laundry room. I have offered to pay for the bathroom (within reason) and BF will be paying for the deck, we will be doing the majority of the work ourselves and buying our own fixtures. The only thing we’ll need to hire someone for is to run the plumbing and I know that can get costly so we’re going to get a few quotes from a few different companies.
Here’s where I need your help! Do you guys have any home renovation DIY tips??(I’m looking at you Debt Cents and Time…) It’s times like these that I REALLY miss John & Sherry from Young House Love…come back guys! come baaack! Can you guys believe the DIY renos they have accomplished?! What do you think it would take to bribe them into coming over and helping me? Would kidnapping be too far?
I will also need to save up some coin for this reno! Since I plan on leaving PT job by the end of May that leaves overtime at FT job which just won’t cut it, I’ll have to come up with some other ways to come up with extra money for the bathroom project. There are some great ideas over at The Penny Hoarder with 29 Smart Ways to Make Money on the Side in 2015 here’s hoping a few of these will work for me!
