We have postponed the remodeling of our kitchen and master bathroom for five years now. Apparently, there are people out there who actually enjoy such efforts. I believe that they most likely fall into one of the following categories:
1) Filthy Rich
2) Certifiably Insane
I believe that more people are like me: they make the decision to remodel because there is no other decision. When your shower can't be used and your floor is sagging and your counter has a hole in it ... it's time to let your fingers do the walking.
I find myself shocked at the challenge it has been just to find a contractor to do the work. You'd think that there would be more businesses out there interested in taking money to do a task to a certain specification of Quality, but you'd be surprised ...
