Being a home owner can be exciting and at times, well.... not so exciting. Having kiddos takes home projects to a new level too, as least for me. Case in point, my kids experiment with flushing a bathtub toy was a FAIL. Which led to discovering the toilet flange was completely rusted away and had been leaking slowly. I wanted to remodel our guest bathroom, it just began sooner than expected (see what was uncovered in the subflooring--replaced underlayment & subfloor--joists were ok).
Knowing & trusting contractors and craftspeople is KEY. Electrician, carpenter, plumber, mason, custom door maker, the list is LONG if you have the ability to dream! Craftspeople have the ability to make your vision of a space a reality (and tolerate you along the way). I like to be be involved (DIYer to the core!) . I like the look of tile but had never installed....so the bathroom remodel was also a learning experience.
