Yes, It May Look Worse Before It Gets Better

 

 

I was watching one of those home renovation shows yesterday, one where they purchase a home and renovate it to get the home they want at an affordable bottom line. These shows always make me laugh for one reason or another.

At the very start of the renovation, they were tearing out a wall. The woman had a problem accepting the demolition of the interior of a home that they just paid a lot of money to purchase. She had the conversation with the agent but I don't think she realized what that was going to look like.

Things will usually get worse before it gets better when renovating a home you purchase in Sacramento. It does get better!

Tom, when the walls come down things usually do look a lot worse before it all starts to come together. There is a lot of drama on those shows ... more than the drama of the construction.

People need to realize that when you turn it over to a professional the professional sets the rules.

I don't think girls are EVER prepared for the "before it gets better it gets worse" part of a remodel, but it's sure true.

Good morning Tom.  Although our home is less than 1 year old I wish the two spare bedrooms were a little larger.  I'll get it done one of these days but not soon enough for me
