When will it end?

Kitchen DemolitionI thought by now we’d be enjoying the fruits of our labors, not to mention back to the mode of actually saving some money. But alas, we are still in the midst of our home renovation. My patience is beginning to run thin as every time I turn around I am writing a check to one of the contractors, buying material, knocking down another wall, and as always cleaning up the DUST!

I’ve read plenty of articles about home owners who go through the same ordeals with regards to home renovation, but until you are in the midst of it you don’t really appreciate what they meant. We still have a good amount of work to complete in terms of major work, including finishing the family room and the entire kitchen redo, but I can start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Once the major work is completed there will still be plenty for me to do. There are plenty of cracked plaster walls in need of repair, painting and some finish carpentry that I will need to handle. Perhaps by the summer, we will be bac to some sort of normal way of life around here. Stay tuned.
