Remodeling: How crazy it is
By Jacob Gilleland
When you’re remodeling, everything seems chaotic. There will be 20 guys with hammers tearing up your house and banging on what seems like anything that will make a loud noise. It’s so crazy you just want and need a break from it. My family is currently remodeling, so I know this from firsthand experience.
The workers will come at around 7 in the morning. You’ll be woken up at 7:05 to the BANG, BANG, BANG of workers tearing out some part of your house. If you’ve ever remodeled your house before, you’ll know what you feel like during the remodeling. If you haven’t remodeled before I’ll tell you: You’ll feel tired, agitated and upset. My family is having the roof done and a new window cut out and our kitchen is being torn apart AND we’re adding a new room AND in a week or two we are going to put hardwood floors in most of our house. So as I’m sure you can imagine, it is absolutely CRAZY at my house, and it will be most of the summer.
If it’s your neighbor remodeling, expect almost as much noise as the neighbor having remodeling done, especially if their roof is being done too. Some of my family’s neighbors that live down the street have said they could hear the workers at our house, inside their house, about as clear as we could hear the workers at our house.
When you remodel a lot of guys with different jobs come to your house; sometimes there will be plumbers, carpenters and brick masons. Sometimes there will be a demolition crew, roofers and glass guys (I don’t know the name of guys who put in the glass). Now that you know how much noise and craziness comes with remodeling, are YOU ready to remodel??
