The Breaking Point

I’ve reached the point that all people going through a remodel reach… The breaking point. I’m done. I want my house back. I’m stressed that we’ve made bad decisions…Will I like the cabinets? Do I like that tile? What if I hate the flooring? What if I don’t like the paint colors? At this point, […]
