When it comes to finding good help when building or remodeling your home, there’s a fine line between getting a quality result and being able to afford the type of result you’re after.
I heard a designer on TV (who had just “flipped” a house, I think it was on HGTV) say something like this:
I have a theory about those 3 little words ‘Good’, ‘Fast’ and ‘Cheap’. It is impossible to use those three words together on a remodeling/redecorating project.
Her point was:
- You can find help that’s good and cheap, but it won’t be done fast.
- You can find fast and cheap help, but it won’t be good.
- You can find help that’s good and fast, but it won’t be cheap.
Point well taken.
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
