To begin with our remodeling project of our house, my wife and I together had a clear vision of what was to be done. It was not difficult per say to figure out costs and to figure out what materials went or matched with one another.
My wife and I have been saving up little by little for approximately 2 years which meant that we had a very good budget. We felt so happy and did not give a second thought about remodeling our bathroom. My wife and I had been thinking about remodeling our bathroom for quite a while also. We were both feeling great and happy and ready to move on forward with our project.
To begin, we found the tile, granite countertops, and paint we wanted at Lowes after a grueling 3 hours of going back and forth to different Lowes locations to see what was in stock and clearly available.
The first step was fun, we broke our existing floor with out worry and threw away the trash. The following step was what made us nervous. The leveling, pouring of cement and installing the tile was nerve racking when it is your first shot at installing it.
We spent 2 days for the cement to cure and install tile, also another day for the covering of appliances and windows for the painting. We took about 3 days to demolish, install, paint and finish it and both my wife and I were shocked to see that in such a short period of time that our old bathroom was transformed in to what we had envisioned.
Overall, installing or just remodeling your house for the first time will involve excitement, fear and joy when it is planned with time and have an available budget to work with.
