It's finally ours. Actually, not officially yet, but we have the keys and Tim spend the day tearing some stuff apart. This is crazy. We have an uncompleted rehab house and it overwhelms me.
I know that this project can be done, but when I look at the project, I don't even know where to start or what to do. In my head, I start making a list of everything that needs to be done for the entire project, and then I get overwhelmed. I need to remember - just one step at a time.
This is all brand new to me. Construction is not new, but this is my house and my money and my project on my time. This is a big deal and I'm already mildly stressing about it. I'm glad I have Tim helping - I couldn't do this without him. So I do what I do best - I make lists, schedules, spreadsheets, and detailed floor plans. This helps me organize everything and I feel more at peace. Good thing Tim is the action man actually getting stuff done in the field.
I know there is a learning curve to anything new. Right now, I'm freaking out. On the next house, it will be easy; but for now, this is all new and I'm learning. I am so excited to learn and experience this, as I have always wanted to do my own rehab project. I am also human, and a little nervous. But let that excite me and motivate me. We are in a good spot and have lots of good people that support us. We probably know more than I realize, and just because it's a new thing for us, I get a tad scared. We are facing this head on and will create the coolest remodel house we can make!
