I’m guessing you’ve watched a 30-minute episode of Property Brothers or Fixer Upper or any other home renovation show on HGTV and thought to yourself: ‘Hmm, that doesn’t look too hard.’
Well, think again. My very first renovation project had a budget of $20,000. I was going to be done in two weeks. $60,000 and 3 months later I was finished. I was an unprepared newbie who had built up too much confidence from watching HGTV and DIY clips on YouTube – and I paid for it.
