Where on the internet can I find a detail listing of the items I should be concerned about for year round homeowner maintenance?

Hi Jon Rufty,
I just did a quick search myself and came up empty.Readers Digest Do-it-Yourself Manual,Time/Life books,or doing a little reading here is a good start.
You can assemble your own schedule for your home and put it on your computer by month or season.Microsoft Works has templates for setting up such a schedule or you can create your own.
It is also helful to track your energy use,service calls to outsiders,when you replaced equipment,painted a room,and on and on.HAVE FUN!

You might try checking the Home Depot site. They love to sell you the things you'll need for that purpose.
