Household Binder - Home Improvement

This is Part 5 in a series on our Household Binder. Click to read Part 1 , Part 2 , Part 3, and Part 4.

This is one of my favorite parts of the binder - Home Improvement! In case you can't tell, I am pretty much in love with home projects and so this little section helps me track some of ideas and visions for our home. It also helps me keep track of important details of what I've already done, in case I need to remember it later :)

In the pocket divider are the tags for the recent plants we bought for the front bed in front of our house. (need to do a post on that soon!) I just saved them as we were planting because I knew they'd be nice to have to reference later. 

The first two pages of the section are floor plans for our house. One day, I hope to color in the rooms based on paint color. It helps to see the big picture of our house and how it all works together.

My favorite part of this section is the Home Project Checklist. Rob and I went room-by-room (or space by space outside) to figure out everything we would want to do to the house ideally. Key last word there :) A lot of these are simple tweaks and some of them are huge projects that may never get done. But it's fun to have a list we can go through when looking for a project and it helps us prioritize as well. There's about 6 pages of this list but I just included an example of the first page. (By the way, you can find a less detailed version of this list with pictures on the our home tab up top.)

The last two pages in the binder are great for referencing what we've already done. I have a "Paint Colors" page that lists all the paint colors we've painted in our home, and a "Landscaping" page that can remind me what we did to the front bed :)

That's all for Home Improvement! Up next - the last section! It is definitely the most random but still helpful - Miscellaneous Important Information :)
