Driving Towards FIRE,  Our 1906 Folk Victorian Farmhouse Renovation

Roses are blooming & hearts are swooning

Don’t let HGTV fool you. Renovation budgets are more like guidelines instead of actual budgets. Do you know how quick it is to blow a renovation budget?

Just like the jump to lightspeed.

It can happen just that quick. Especially in this ridiculous inflationary period of time we’re all living in. There are supply constraints especially as it pertains to appliances as well as some finishes and because of those constraints, ordering certain items way ahead of time is a necessity. This can disrupt your project budget and make you have to get creative with each month of your renovation.

As it currently sits, we are over our initial budget. Which we fully expected to happen, but with all renovation projects, some costs we didn’t plan for. I’m sure if you ask others, they will confirm the same.

Budgets and costs aside, we’re pouring our passion for building something that aligns with our vision. Merging passion with finances can go either way, but if you do your diligence and analyze your numbers, your return on investment will be bigger than just what the numbers look like on paper.

Watching our ideas and passion for having a home that is what we want makes our hearts swoon. We are looking forward to seeing the final product!
