After spending the past few years completely building a new house with the help of a few friends and dozens of contractors and remodelers, we have learned a lot in this short amount of time. Even at the beginning, we thought we knew it all, but oh boy were we terribly wrong!
After opening up the project we soon realized how lost we were. I and my wife (in the blog, she answers your questions and writes posts) were swamped with tasks we needed for our new home. We needed new lighting for the whole home, we needed new closets as the ones in our house were horrendous.
Along with that, we were going to upgrade our backyard to include a gazebo to make the backyard a better hangout spot. So obviously we knew we were going to have to go through a major overhaul. I spent hours upon hours for a couple of weeks straight doing research, and I finally found out it was my time to select Allen Roth for my needs.
When we began we knew it was going to be tedious, but it was something we both wanted.
But what I’m trying to tell you with this story is that if you are looking forward to doing any type of remodeling in your home, hopefully, we can spare you some despair with all the lessons that we have learned.
Thanks for visiting ANestWithAYard.com (former allenrothhq.com)! I hope you find some helpful tips!
