A girfriend of mine is moving into her first house and she has no tools or supplies. What is a basic checklist of item/tools she should have on hand? Ex: lawnmower, cordless screwdriver, hammer..etc

As far as the tools go she could need a lot of things, but maybe if you could get one of those tool kits where everything is in one case. That might be a good place to start.

But if I may suggest. If she is going to have the house inspected make sure she goes through the house with the inspector. If she hasn't found one yet, maybe she can ask how helpful they are during the inspection process. Some may explain things better than others so she can get some basic knowledge of how her new house will work.

I'd say

A good screwdriver set

Hammer

cordless drill driver(maybe even a kit with a saw too)

drill bits

wood chisels

speed square

socket set

channel locks

pliers

tape measure

2 ft level

caulk gun

duct , electrical and painters tape

6 ft ladder

assorted paint brushes

paint roller and tray

and i'd say a little assortment of nails screws and picture hangers and anchors
