What does it take to get renos completed?

I don't ever remember a time when there wasn't some kind of renovations happening in our house.  I also don't ever remember a time when a reno that was started was actually totally completed.  

We have been in the same house for over 20 years.  

We are presently in the process of fixing our house up to sell.  I actually now have a tub surround installed around the new tub that was put in about 6 years ago.  I now have doors to the kitchen cupboards that were put in about 10 years ago.  Actually, that's not totally true. The truth is that the cupboards that were put in 10 years ago have been taken down and new cupboards have been put up, but the doors actually went on at the same time.  Today I finally got a range hood installed over my stove!  It only took 20 years.  It's amazing what can get done in a house when you are about to leave it.  

So, if your house is like mine with renos in progress, just remember that they probably won't ever be completed until right before you go to sell it.


That's what's on my mind today.
