    I made a thread a few months ago regarding a recent purchase of a house . I had buyers remorse shortly thereafter. The first week the basement started to leak( thank goodness that problem is solved ). Then after I started to clean the house I ran in to some surprises . Let's start with the bathroom ! Within in the first 30 min of cleaning I felt it was better if I just ripped the fuc king bathroom out (grossed out). Then things just got out control from there I ripped out all the carpets and the kitchen . Now I'm living in a hotel because my house is non livable for a few months . My kitchen will not be done until January. I'm working all sorts of overtime and I'm struggling to get any work done on the house. The situation I'm truly fucking sucks

    Two sayings come to mind-

    First world problems.

    A fool and his money are soon parted.

    It sucks now, but when it is done you will have the house you want. Hang in there.

    My "house" was a barn when I bought it and I spent 4 years of my spare time turning it into a house. You bought the place, so it's no good screaming at the sky, "Why me?!". Break the jobs down into logical and manageable goals and aim to complete each one, before moving onto the next. For starters, make at least one room habitable and make sure you have basic toilet and washing facilities, then you can stop spending your house renovation funds on hotel bills.

    The problem isn't the house. The problem is that you are a spender.

    Two words: House Inspection? - as in did you have one?

    I bought a 100 year old house this April, and I walked into it knowing full well that, like with any 100 year old house there's always something to fix or replace.

    Two important things are:

    - don't fix anything if it's serviceable or livable until you've SAVED up MONEY to pay for it.

    - don't get caught up in having to have the perfect home right away. Unless your bathroom was falling apart (like with dry rot (which the housing inspector would have caught) you didn't need to tear it out right away just to appease your vanity.

    Do yourself two big favors, learn from these life lessons, and accept that the in inconvenience, and expense was something you brought on yourself.

    Next time you won't be so cheap and you'll afford the nicer home!

    Fixer uppers are never really a deal.

    Why on earth would someone troll about regretting a house purchase? Unless, of course, he's going to proceed to blame Obama.

    You should live with a construction worker that's the best way to get the work done well, fast and for (almost) free.

    ^^ that's a dumb advise, unless that construction worker can do everything - being electrician, plumber, designer and what not which is highly doubtful, but I guess it was a '' funny '' joke haaa haaa

    Designer? Youre so gay icon_lol.gif A house should be practical and solid. Any good construction worker with experience as contractor should manage it all, maybe hire someone else to do a specific job (that's why I said "almost") but should definitely handle the whole thing well, and fast when it's your own house.

    some people want to hire designers for their homes not to look like ape shit, but what would you know, you just know how to label designers or anyone who uses them as gay, but hey you do resemble someone who comes from slums of brazil and a house can be practical and solid with a designer, your ignorance is astounding

    My dad was a construction worker. The expression "the shoemaker's children have no shoes" was inspired by him.

    This isn't buyer's remorse.
    It's poor planning.
    It appears that you created all this stress by deciding to renovate the entire house at one time.
    Never the less, when it's done, and you have everything in place, you should be very glad that you bought this house.

    Look in most cases the owners have enough sense to pick tiles, fixed furniture and stuff to decorate kitchen, bathroom, floors, etc. They don't need to hire an interior designer, they just tell the contractor what they want and that's it. And even if they wanted to hire one that would be included in the "extras" I mentioned before.

    It's clear you know shit about this, I can tell you're so useless you dont even know how to hang a painting on the wall.

    Well I can tell that's not true. I'm a construction worker myself and I have made all kind of modifications in my house over the years including an extension of the living room, adding one room and building a barbecue in the backyard plus dozens of other minor things and fixes all around.
