Eric the car guy on YouTube did a video of this job on his Element with the k24 engine. Almost makes me want to give it a go down the road.
Valve lash inspection and adjustment is a great DIY project. Not the best job for a person with no prior engine work experience.
Access to the valve closet on the 1.8L engine is not difficult and no parts should be needed beyond a couple of dabs of Honda Bond (or equivalent) where specified.

If you have all the necessary tools, the process should not take more than 4 hours. (that's including a beverage break too)

-Spark Plugs (personally I will only run NGK)
-Oil/Filter Change (personally I will use Honda or Bosch D3323 filter)
-Cabin air filter (personally I like Bosch, part# 6029c)
-Accessory belt for PS/AC/Crank pulley

-Brake line flush
-Clutch line flush
-Valve adjustment (as suggested EricTheCarguy is awesome)

Cooling system:
-Thermostat
-Check rubber hoses, replace as needed (cheap insurance)
-Coolant flush/replace

Plus anything the maintenance minder suggests
