Some of my chores were:
Bringing wiring up to code & installing new lighting in my wife's studio. Replacing the furnace flue. Insulating around the chimney in the attic. Truing doors. New toilet. Exterior woodwork repairs. Fixing uneven sidewalk. Creating a dozen "found object" sculptures to "beautify" the yard. Clearing out a lot of computers from my collection. Replacing ancient water pipes in basement. Putting in railings.
and my favorite one:
Replacing the cracked pantry window that I've been putting off since 1979.
