You might want to read Atul Gawande's The Checklist Manifesto. One of the chapters talks about how the process of building a high-rise was, in essence, one giant checklist. An important part of it was exit meetings with key people (not unlike the people you are dealing with your renovation). It helped catch issues before they became costly either in terms ...

I usually don't recommend trello, but in this case, Trello for your Personal Kanban would be awesome. I would make a few columns for your backlog. Things that need to be done | things that are coming up | Things to do today. When possible make the ticket pictures of the way you want that task to look when it is done.

I get your problem completely, I faced this too myself. What worked for me was getting my kanban set in a less strict way - as in I added a column for "reccuring tasks" and copy them when I need to do them again, also I have a column for long-term work, and assign how much time daily I intend to spenf on each of those, still leaving me time for what I'm ...
