The Remodel Nightmare

Posted on

How many of you dread remodeling?聽 OMG, never, in my mind did I think it was going to be so chaotic, draining and stressful!

So, last year with the rain my little homeshed office was damaged due to the rain and because I didn’t have the necessary funds to repair, of course, it got worse!聽 So, this year wanting and not wanting I had no choice but to get the repairs and remodeling on the way before the winter starts.聽 As you know with all the ongoing catastrophic events that we’ve had going on around the world, I obviously don’t want to take a chance and have it come crumbling down on me 馃檨 that would NOT BE GOOD, right?!

As you can see the damage on the bottom, this little office was actually starting to tilt…OMG, right!!!聽 Don’t let the outdoors fool you, the inside is very, very nice and comfy, as you can see the old color was bright orange!

So, we decided to get the bottom repaired, reinforced, as well as getting the roof done, changing the door (provide me with

So, we decided to get the bottom repaired, reinforced, as well as getting the roof done, changing the door (provide me with some more lighting and outdoor vision), but I also did even more, I had them change the insulation and sheetrock to make it more energy-efficient and of course to聽SAVE SOME $$$ MULA!聽 Times are still hard, but without an office, I can’t聽WORK!聽I also changed the inside color as well, I made it a more neutral color, so that it can match my white, gray, Paris, Shabby Chic decor 馃檪聽 聽Having your own personal workspace makes a huge difference, right?!聽 At least, for me, it makes a big difference!

So, what do you think?聽 Do you think, it’s coming out good??? So, what I realized is that making repairs and maintenance doesn’t have to be expensive.

Originally, I was going to do (2 front windows and a glass door), but that was going to cost me about $400-$600 bucks just on the material (And, it wasn’t even the nice expensive stuff)…So, we kept shopping around and my husband suggested that I do a wide french door, which it would still give me the view and lighting that I was looking for, so we started to shop for that and guess what? I found a door for under $350.00 on SALE at Lowes (+) I found a professional laborer who installed it for $250!!!

We also SAVED on the paint because we had a 5-gallon bucket that we had used for the inside of our house years back 馃檪

The sheetrock and insulation, we found it on SALE at Home Depot聽and for labor, I was able to SAVE some $$$ because my hubby and kids were able to install and handle this task using Youtube 馃槈 Yeup, it came in handy!

SHOP AROUND AND DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE AND TRUST ME, YOU WILL FIND WAYS TO SAVE ON YOUR PROJECTS!

So, I will post new pictures once this task is complete, so stay tuned for the final finish!!!

As you’ll see on my Featured image, I finished the make-over New Paint and Flooring compared to what I originally picked!
