i feel like i can't get any projects done because 1 day a week is strictly yard work. I love my 1 acre lot but all the trees make it alot of work.

It's either that or hiring someone to come over for that one day, or even bi-weekly.

Replace interior doors (they're old, warped and getting harder to close - and they're all wood so they weight a ton too)
id buy the old doors off ya if you were close :/ Solid wood doors are hard to come by these days

yea pretty much. i'm fine doing it myself now, i may recruit a couple buddies to help take down some branches and pay them in beer.

the project i really need to do is to create a drainage flow away from my driveway. i need to take up a lot of sod, take out a bunch of dirt, and make sure it slopes away from the driveway. right now my driveway gets a couple inches of standing water after a decent rain.

like one day a week after work? or one solid day

Also, what takes so much time? I know your place is pretty new to you, are you in "recovery mode" to kind of tame it and get it under control

b10. Dirt or gravel driveway, or paved?

Mine was kind of like a riverbed when i got the place, held water like crazy just from being worn down and below grade. I ended up just filling the entire "riverbed" with a ton of gravel to bring it above grade.

usually its about 6 hours of work, sometimes more sometimes less. leaves are a huge problem for me, even with my pull behind leaf catcher it takes a long time. mowing only takes a couple hours. to trim the hedges is at least 6 hours to do the most of it, but not all.

and the driveway is paved. i want to stay with grass on both sides, so i need to make it lower than the driveway where i'm pitching it.

That blows. It's details like the drainage system that I hate going back and doing.

Try impossible. The issue is that 50+ years of this door has started causing issues with the joints/interior door frames.
