Our house is a perpetual fixer upper'
It's easy to get caught up in a majorly overwhelmed state when all around is construction and unfinished projects. I can tend to get a little down sometimes thinking 'what have we done? Really??'
People are constantly asking, "So have you finished your remodel yet." Considering how excited I was when we bought this crazy project I can understand. I think I should have been more specific when I said it is a 'fixer-upper.' Really, that doesn't even describe it. Its 5200 sqft of every inch needing redone including ceilings and floors and roof, and 2 1/4 acres of unlandscaped mess. I can't help but just laugh, because when you are this in over your head what else can you do, right?
We have done most all the work so far ourselves. When a project gets to be too scary we have to call in the big dogs. We have made a lot of mistakes and made a lot of good choices. Either way, we just have to have fun with it.
