Owning A Fixer Uper

Owning a fixer upper house

Sometimes all you can afford in a home is to have something that is not completely finished yet. But that is nothing to be ashamed of, most of us have to find an affordable house and sometimes those are the ones that need a little bit more work. The good thing about that is that you can make your house exactly what you want. So embrace the fact that you have to do a little bit more work, just enjoy yourself while you are deciding what would look best for you and your family in your home. 


Deciding what you want your house to look like can be quite difficult. You can look on  the internet for some inspiration. Find the things that you like and your family likes and then you can come up with a plan that works for your house. Once you have your plan then you will need to buy the materials.


Of course we all want the project to be the cheapest as possible, so for that you can also look online for alternatives to expensive materials that you need for the house. You can also go to a hardware store and ask a worker if they can help you find the cheapest selections. Now you’re ready to get started but the biggest mistake that most people make is that they start the project and don’t finish the project.

How to stay on track

What can you do to make sure you stay on track of your project and get it done without procrastinating.  You can book some time off of your job, making sure you take the appropriate time to finish the job.  If that’s not an option for you, then you can  block off your upcoming weekends to get the job done. make sure to block those weekends all in a row that way you will not stretch out the project longer than it should be.

If you are a procrastinator and know that you will not get the job done when it needs to, if you can afford it then you should have someone come in and do the job for you. This way you know that the job will be done as quickly and thoroughly as possible.

If you do procrastinate and let the project go for a long time, then you will never get it done. That’s just the way that it works. That is exactly why we suggest to block off sometime and get the project done all at once or as quickly as it can be done. Just remember that you’re home is a huge and important part of your life and your family’s life.

Final designs

When you’re done getting everything fix that needs fixing like maybe your kitchen cupboard doors or possibly your plumbing issues, then it’s time to design your home.

This is the fun and exciting part so make sure to embrace it. Change the paint colours in your house to make it your home. Add some decorating pieces that resonates with you.  this may be your wife’s job, but that is great teamwork. 

So like mentioned before, it is best to block off the time you need to get your projects done that way your house is not in construction for years in years because this tends to happen to many people.  get it done and you won’t have to worry about it any longer.  On top of that you will make your family and your wife very happy for having a beautiful home of your own.
