TT #91


13 things to remember about remodeling a house.

1. This too shall pass.

2. A year from now, it will all be a memory.

3. Having a dishwasher will be a wonderful thing.

4. The dust CAN be cleaned up again, and again, and again.

5. The contractors in your house are only temporary.

6. You wanted this.

7. It will be beautiful when its done.

8. Out with the old and in with the new.

9. New appliances are beautiful.

10. You might even want to cook in the kitchen after its done....it could happen!

11. Your family and friends will be envious.

12. At least its not Summer. The temperature is perfect for remodeling.

13. It could always be worse.

You forgot to mention it isn't smart to have your 18 year old "niece" help paint your kitchen AFTER the new floor is down. At least it was only a quart of lavender paint that spilled on it!

I feel your pain, trust me.

I remember when I had remodeling done on my house and there were a lot of days that I think I cried but it was worth it!

Great idea for a list. My 13 is posted. Have a terrific Thursday.

#4 seems to apply at my place too, and I'm not remodeling...why's that? Dust is a never ending phenomenon.

Good luck! I'm saving toward my first major remodeling projects (bathroom and kitchen) and I'm as scared of the disruption as I am the cost!

Once you have a dishwasher you'll wonder how you ever did without one!
