Projects after settlement

There are a few projects that we want to do after settlement.  Unfortunately, although we are willing to learn, my husband and I have not had any luck with home improvement projects in our current house.  So this will cost us more as we will have to hire specialists to come assist us with our projects.  It would be easy if we knew some tradesmen with these skills or had recommendations from family/friends but we don't have those connections.  I may try to see if the tradesmen who work on our house will be willing to complete some things for cash after closing.

Here's what we would like to do, in no order.  How much of it is completed and when they are done is all dependent on budget...

-Wall bracket lights/sconces for study (we got extra outlets from Ryan but need help converting and putting on a switch)
-Install garage door opener
-Kitchen tile backsplash
-Change foyer light (need help due to the height), we will do dining room light ourselves
-Finish basement bath, the 3 piece rough in will be there
-Granite for master bath vanities
-Finish media room
-Pendant lights over kitchen island
-Frame-less glass shower door

Outside, we will have some big $$ projects - namely a fenced backyard and a patio.

Wow, typing it out like this looks like a lot.  Having a dream home is a lot of work :)

Are we SURE money does not really grown on trees, not even in the most remote, uninhabited place on Earth???  Just making sure.
