I am sitting her taking a break from painting a room, and started to think. First off, I HATE painting. All the taping and multiple coats.... Anyways, I realize that in order to make this home we have work at all for the future I would need to put in a TON of time that I do not have or hire some contracters to do the work for me. Either way the house will remain entirely too small for any future family my wife and I have. So I am wondering what is the point in doing any improvements. Sure, some things add value, but what we like might not be what a prospective buyer likes. We have been on the urge of building for the longest time, but we are holding out till I know where I will be going to Med school (hopefully going to that is). Well I think that my rant about homeownership is running it's course, and I need to get back to that most loathsome of job....painting.
