I got rid of the jungle gym/playset that came with he house when we moved in 13 years ago. Our daughter got her use out of it and it really, other than a couple neighborhood kids on occasion, never got used.

The biggest project, if I go ahead and do it, and here expense may be an issue, I'd like to do a decorative tiled roof. This may be a bit ambitious for my weekend handyman skills (and patience). But after having visited Barcelona, and seeing the wonderful Gaudi roofs, I'd love to have one of my own design on a mini-scale, of course. If I can't do the tile, it'll be a stained shingle roof. No asphalt shingles.
Everything will be as repurposed as possible. I'll reuse much of the lumber from the playset as possible, old windows being replaced in the house, the old door that was in the garage when we moved here, and scrap lumber and materials from other projects. I'm looking forward to a trip to Buffalo ReUSE to find whatever else I may need. Their store carries items reclaimed from area buildings prior to their demolition.
And I'll add back in the Harry Potter Garden. More accurately, I should call it my Potter Shed.
These are the things that keep me awake at night.
