  3. Renovation
A remodeling project can take much of your time, money, and energy. If you’re doing many things by yourself, it can feel like a second full-time job, and it’s only natural that you’re exhausted all the time. As the project goes on, you can encounter many problems, such as budget changes or the inability to stick to deadlines.
