Have you ever considered doing a renovation to your home? Well, you are not alone. But before you jump into it, be aware… there are many hidden secrets in your house – especially if you have an old house!

The demo in our house lasted about 2 weeks. That is two solid weeks of horsehair plaster from the 1900s literally in every inch of our home. Yep, horsehair plaster in my coffee cup! What was exposed after demo was NOT pretty or expected! Cut beams, notched floor joists, mystery framed doors, structural beams with no support, rotten floor boards and a slanted floor. None of this was expected!

How does it impact the project? TIME & MONEY!

But they have to be fixed! When doing a renovation, it is really important to commit to improving your home in the RIGHT way. This is your opportunity to properly insulate and fix structural / venting issues. Personally, I am looking forward to a solid, quiet and warm master bedroom!
