Hello! I purchased my DREAM home almost 2 years ago. I had no concept of how big it was (5,000 sq ft) until I had to pay for things by the square foot! Ugh! I've renovated 80% of the space & have done a ton of outdoor work too! I did what I could myself and hired tradesmen to do what I'm not qualified to do (but had them HIRE ME as a laborer...where I learned a ton)... I'm getting to the end, hopefully, with more "holidays" than I care to count. So here I am...figuring out the rest!
