I previously mentioned that we were in contract to buy a home. Well, we finally closed and, since then, life has been a non-stop whirlwind of meeting or speaking with general contractors, architects, kitchen designers, roofers, painters, gardeners, the list goes on…
I think I’ve dealt with almost 20 tradespeople in a span of three weeks!
Mr. C and I bought a solid house in a great location. However, the interior is dated and the kitchen is terribly laid out. In light of the fact that we *hope* this will be our forever home and that we have two young children, we are trying to renovate as much as possible before moving in.
This means: Gutting the entire kitchen and three bathrooms, reflooring, raising ceilings, knocking down walls, replacing the roof, converting the fireplace, adding and/or redoing all closets, painting. Basically, a lot of effin’ work.
And, of course, that also means I am now in neurotic research mode. Which has since become my full-time job, for the time being.
I plan to start documenting my home remodeling journey, if for no other purpose than to share my neurosis with others.
