Work to be Done

Everyone's been asking us "what do you need for the house?" or "how can we help you with the house?" I really appreciate all the offers to help, but I can never think of stuff on-the-spot. So Gavin told me to sit down and make a list of the things we need to do and the things we need for the house. That way our friends and family will know and can help with what they want to. We're also planning a couple "work days" that anyone is more than welcome to come out and hep.... So here goes :)

Work Days:
