House Improvements Needed

OK my house needs a big makeover since we moved in August 2005 we have done some improvements but nothing major infact heres a huge list of what needs doing

NEW WINDOWS AND DOOR
My windows are rotting, there moldy if i dont wipe them down and my back sliding door is actually eroding, estimated cost to get replaced £5K

NEW BOILER
We have an old boiler its in Jays room which im not happy about but it costs too much to move, We have boiler insurance and have had to call them out 3 x since April 08 and they have done 3 repairs, they said its ok but we really need to get a new one due to safety estimated cost £1700

NEW BATHROOM
Our bathroom omg its nasty its moldy its not a nice place to wash and i want it replacing
Estimated cost £1500-2500

NEW KITCHEN
including cooker/fridge freezer, dishwasher average cost £900 for goods
for kictchen probably about £4,000 min

I need new carpets throughout but this is just the last thing that will get done

so i think i will get a few window quotes in the next month see what they say and try and save some money towards the finance we will prob have to get out

WHAT DOES YOUR HOUSE NEED DOING TO IT?

In 2008 we had a burst water pipe in our back room so we called johns dad out and he had to dig right down and repair the pipe, we are lucky he sorted this for us, we have house insurance so we got a new carpet

Also we had a big mold issue in the living room, which meant all the plaster had to be taken off, lots of layers of different crap to stop the damp, a damp injection course, everything replasterd, papered and painted. It took from OCT 08 to christmas eve to get back in the room and the plaster has just finished so the final paper and paint will be done in the next few weeks so it will finally be finished. We got a quote from a builder of £3000 to do this but we did it for about £500 with Johns dad doing it so he has saved us alot of money, however we need a new carpet putting in as he put one in the year before but he didnt fit it right so its a bit of a mess ...but hey ho cant have everything

Charlie needs his room doing next too with all the wallpaper taken off, a radiator put in with a plug socket and new window as its as moldy as hell thats why he is in our bedroom but he cant stay in there much longer....

IL WILL POST PICS WHEN MY LIVING ROOM IS DONE
