Have you ever had that itch to remodel or buy a fixer upper? My husband and I have now bought 2 of them. After the first one we swore we would never do it again….but this time around things are going much smoother.
So I thought I would share what I have learned.
However there are times you call in the experts. My husband and I thought we could fix some plumbing in our master bathtub. We know the basics, and have done some plumbing before. What we didn’t know was that 21 years ago the manifolds for showers were different. In the process of trying to change it we kinked the hot water pipe. Since the tub has a fiberglass surround in order to change the manifold it all has to be torn down and redone! If we had paid a plumber it would have been a couple of hundred now it is going to cost much more than that!
When considering how long something will take make sure you give yourself a reasonable amount of time and allow for bumps, it is always better to finish ahead of schedule.
I have loved to put my touch on this house and make it our home.
