Commentary by Randy Sorrell and Bill Bernard
In the midst of what looks like (from a construction scheduling point of view) non-stop rain delays, expectations and emotions can rise and fall like you’re riding The Beast at King’s Island. This emotional roller coaster ride is a part of every construction or remodeling project.
Although every remodeling project should include detailed planning and preparation, each phase of the design and construction process carries its own series of curves and sometimes even inversions. To lessen the emotional impact of the process, it is essential that the lines of communication between contractor and homeowner are open and active. It is important to be prepared and know what to expect. It is equally important that the homeowner express their thoughts, expectations and concerns.
Keeping things in perspective, the relatively short period of disruption compared to the years of enjoyment you will receive from your new space will quickly fade from memory. Our hope is that at the end of the ride you are left wanting to get back in line and take the ride again. Only difference is that this time you’ll want to sit in the front car and ride with your hands in the air.
Stay home, be moved
