Three Day Remodeling
The most important room in your home is your bathroom. There is no disputing that. It’s not like when nature calls you can just head out to back yard and do your business, or take a drive down to Hardee’s and use their bathroom.
The kitchen, while not quite as dire, is probably the second most important room in the home. Not only is the time spent likely to be greater than you estimated, teh cost of eting out can be dire. If the planning is done properly, however, you can remodel you kitchen in about three days.
Take Time Off Work.
This may sound like a waste of vacation time, but having three days in the middle of the week solves a lot of problems. Firstly, all of the building material stores will be open. Any support staff you need will be available and you’ll have enough daylight to ensure that you are not remodeling kitchen in the dark.
Due to modern miracles of meteorology (god-bless Doppler 2000) you can ensure that for at least three days you will have nice weather. This makes transportation of fixtures very easy, and it will cut down on the amount o mud tracked into your home.
There can be lots of surprises over the course of one month. Sure anything can happen at any time, but a lot less can happen in three days.
Summon Your Friends.
It’s a lot easier to ask for favors over the course of three days than three weeks. Generally you’ll be able to scrape up enough social capital to have dinner at friends and family for three nights. Also, your acquaintances won’t mind watching your child for a couple days…instead of a couple weeks.
