What we are doing:

In what spare time we have, we decided to spend it (and our savings) on remodeling our rowhouse in South Philly. When we purchased our casa it was a 3 story, 5 bedroom, 1 bath that hadn't been touched in 50+ years. It's currently a 4 bed, 2 bath construction site with so much more to do it's hard to believe.

We use this blog to mark progress, say hi to friends and family, rant about the process of remodeling, and try to have some fun along the way.

The first 'punch' list: the anti-DIY part 2

In keeping with my theme from yesterday, I have attached the first punch list my wife has created.

(On a side note: I've asked her a couple of times why it's called a 'punch list' instead of something like 'Stuff to get right' list, or 'We are paying for this?' list. Never got a straight answer on this one. I think it's because you feel like punching something quite often).

Anyway here's the list right now. Again, I'll say that Christina (more so that myself) is very accurate and exact in what she wants done. While that's a great mentality for all of this, it creates a list like:
According to Wikipedia (because it's always 100% accurate):
The phrase takes its name from the historical process of punching a hole in the margin of the document, next to one of the items on the list. This indicated that the work was completed for that particular construction task. Two copies of the list were punched at the same time to provide an identical record for the architect and contractor.

what a hoot. She's definitely detailed.....but so are you. Both of you have to be to do your jobs. The good thing is you know it will be done right. I agree with you - why a "punch List"? how about a "check-off list".
