GRAMMAR: Checklist hoi!

It has been a pleasure reading this mailing list whilst I work on my
own conlang. As I'm sure most of you know for yourselves, making a
language always has those small brain-teasers you have to solve to get
something work. My issue is not the solving of these brain-teasers,
but rather knowing how many brain-teasers there are: specifically in
the more complicated parts of grammar.
My question is: do any of you have a personal "checklist" of grammar
functions you have to address whenever you start a conlang?
Specifically phrases (infinitive, prepositional, apposative, etc.).
If you do, it'd be great to have a glance at them ^_^
(BTW: my language is highly inflecting and has a very loose word order
reminiscient of Latin. This makes phrases difficult to handle for me,
a high school student who's understanding of the more abstract parts
of his language is limited ^_~)
