|This is NOT Heisenberg|
This was yesterday. We got a lot of sand cleaned up last night but there is a layer of film everywhere. This has turned me off EVER living in a home on the beach!
So I am exhausted, annoyed and really don’t relish cleaning the rest of this because my b-day is Friday! Who cleans on their b-day?!?! Ok, I’m whinging a bit here, but cmon.
So my question to you renovation people is, how do you handle conflict/differences of opinion with your significant other when remodeling?
I always think of a house we looked at when we were still in house hunting mode. It was a half done remodel with incredible views. It was being sold because the couple was getting divorced. It was completely empty save for the one self help book on the bookshelf on how to deal with problems in a marriage. The half done hot tub still had the hammers and nails sitting there. Like they had a huge argument and just said f*** it and walked out, never to return! It was bizarre and sad at the same time.
I think it’s good that Shawn relishes landscaping while I took up vegetable gardening because we can both stomp off, do some manual labor and regroup.
I wished we had put this sandblasting off until the spring. But we have to get this done before we get the wood paneling replaced. I just wish it wasn’t 80 degrees in beautiful Napa while we are stuck in here in sawdust hell!
Considering this remodel has been going on over TWO YEARS now, I would say we’re doing pretty good but oh boy, there have been days!
