The remodel of my house is fully completed. It stretched from five weeks into two and a half months because I had to make the contractor come back and redo a few things and finish a number of things left undone. Sigh. It seems like very little is easy these days.
After watching a ton of DIY programs and renovation programs like Holmes on Homes, Blog Cabin, Love it or List it, and Property Brothers I thought I had a pretty good grip on what to expect. I saw the miracles that were performed on the TV houses and for half of the money I was spending. I mean, the difference between night and day. Of course, I should have watched those shows with my cynical hat on because I can tell you for sure, those programs are full of cowpies.
