One of the hardest parts about remodeling and building is watching the progress. It seems to go really slow. The most depressing days are when you drive by and no one is working. You just have to realize that that is how it goes and somehow it will get done.
One thing I didn't anticipate with remodeling is that my house is actually getting worse before it will get better. What was once just a tacky house is now uninhabitable. That scares me for some reason. Here is my future kitchen/family room.
