Living Through Your Construction Job

Take It And Run: Ilyce's Corner
By Ilyce Glink for Right at Home Daily

t's all well and good to talk about buying a fixer-upper and doing the renovations necessary to bring the home up to the neighborhood standard - it's another thing to actually do it.

Construction is tough on you, and your family. And, it sucks up cash like there's no tomorrow.

One way to make the job easier is to plan for the worst, and that means facing your fears about renovation straight on. Are you most afraid that your contractor will walk away half way through the job? Or, are you afraid that every time you open up a wall you'll have to replace everything inside.

Once you've voiced your fears, you can set up contingency plans to help you get through whatever situation emerges. Remember, it's your renovation. Plan for it.
