The upside is getting to check off something as "project completed".
The downside of marking off projects is the $$ it takes to make it happen.
The upside of the $$ spent is you are one step closer to completion.
The downside of replacing carpet in three bedrooms and hallway is having to remove everything from rooms and pulling out the old carpet.
The upside is you get some serious spring cleaning and de-junking done.
The downside of having the new carpet finally installed is then having to move everything back into place.
The upside is everything is so nice and tidy and clean and satisfying.
(Here is a look at the new carpet in the hallway)
Our remodel began almost 5 years ago and slowly but surely the job has finally come together.
Here is a list of things that took us five years to complete:
Six hundred sq. ft. addition
New kitchen, family room, laundry room and storage room.
Reconfiguring one bathroom, a linen closet and a bedroom closet into two bathrooms with a walk in closet.
Finally new carpet in the the rooms affected by the bathroom project.
Now that it is all finished I would call it an UPSIDE to all the hard work and sacrifice.
I am now off to start a new "to-do" list. Shhhhhhh, don't tell hubby, I will break it to him slowly. TeeHee!
