Remodeling your home is a long, tiring, stressful, and often expensive process. I remember growing up, we lived with the same early 1980s appliances, carpet, couches, etc. well into the late 90s simply because it was too much work, required more time than either of my parents could spare, and cost money they’d rather spend on other stuff (probably bills and food now that I look back). These are all things that prevent people from remodeling their homes. My family was comfortable and it wasn’t until we saw our neighbors homes that we realized it was time to remodel.
