|Sheet protectors rock. One
package of these has lasted
forever. For every project ever.
I kept pretty good track of my home improvements from when I owned my condo. This is a good idea to have documented for resale and tax purposes. It’s also good so you don’t forget when you replaced that water heater, etc. It’s nice for updating your home’s Zillow worth too. I’m so anal. Haha.
Anyhow, I made my own tracking sheet while we were in the condo and I was able to pass it on to the new owner which was helpful for him to get his home owners insurance setup (figuring out how much it would cost to rebuild if the place burnt down). For my new version, I also added a tracking box for the warrantee information. I’ve included a sample tracking sheet, as well as a blank tracking sheet for your use. They’re available through the links below on Google Drive.
Tracking Home Improvements
I also used dividers (on the tracking sheet you’ll see that I added what tab each item falls under) for each category, ie. kitchen, home exterior, etc.
Here’s the binder for this house, although we’ll probably need to get a bigger one and add dividers in the near future:
Photo Documentation (mostly for fun)
For fun I also kept photos at the different stages of renovations. You’ve seen all the renovations on our current home via past posts, but here’s a few renovations that I did on my condo, back when I owned it, so I figured that was nice to share seeing you can see long term progress.
