Is is never ending. The more you renovate, the worse everything else looks.

Will the living room furniture match the walls now or will you have to change those too?

It will end when you iether run out of money, or will to work.

New bookshelves in the office led to : new computer desk, new file cabinets, new desk chair, new paint (the fancy double color, washed effect that takes 10 times longer) and new blinds (the solid wood ones) Which led to the living room (paint, entertainment center, paintings, couch, more of those wood blinds, carpet and finally a new HD panel TV.

A pipe leak in the master bath lead to everything (sink, faucets, counter, tile floor, ripped out an new tile shower, new shower doors, new toilet, new paint (the !@#$!@#$ hard to blend sand-textured paint.

I dread the remake of the kitchen, or the recarpeting of the rest of the house.

No, it never ends.

Just go diving. The house will still be there when you get back... and if it's not, that's another good excuse to go diving!

Paint everything the same color....then go diving. After all, a house is only a place to eat and sleep. Don't waste too much time or money on it. :smiley36:

In a house, the knee bone's connected to the thigh bone ... start one thing, it leads to another to another .... I started replacing some rotten wood on the porch, and by the time I was done I think I rebuilt about half the porch!

So that means that you do not have camel spider and sand flea paintings in your house? Man I wouldn't get rid of my camel spider painting for all the best viz in the great blue sea LOLOLOLOL

We built a brand new house 4 years ago and I've been remodeling it ever since.

It IS a never ending cycle.
try keeping the lights low-then you won't notice as much, and, if somebody asks about the low light, you can claim that you're "going green".

I just redid the custom shelves I built in my sons room. Things are never ending because everything can always be improved in my head

I agree that remodeling takes on a life of its own, but if a living room redo leads to a new HD Flatscreen, it just might be well worth the effort! :smiley20:

Took two years of back breaking work but I finally finished my place. Then I sold it. Now I'm looking for a new place to start the cycle again.

Well there is a simple solution to all of that remodeling....if you were buying enough dive gear there wouldnt be enough money for all of that.

You know, I think they have programs for those types of addictions.

Not that I know positively, but I'm pretty sure that the original intent of this thread wasn't to generate posts such as these. :smiley36:
C'mon guys, help out a fellow diver with an addiction.

And after looking at his posts for a bit too long and trying to help him out, I have pulled the yellow and black handle on bennerman and congratulate him on being the first and hopefully the last ST member to be put on my ignore list.

What did I do? I did the same thing Kyzzle did. I know the other posts, but I have been trying to improve. And it was obviously a post in this thread that made you the most angry.

If I were to jump off the top of a brigde...........!?

There is an unspoken rule in forum etiquette.... that you can't flame the new guy!! Besides, Navy and I are both in Kansas.... kind of a brotherhood, if you will... and your... well... north of the border. Plus your better off if you learn from my mistakes!:smiley2:

Besides, I have the same disorder Boates has.... That's why I just leave that spot alone.... I know better than to open Pandora's Box!!!:smiley2:

So like everyone else says Boates.... just go dive, dive, dive!!!

To de-derail this thread. Boates, a happy home makes a happy you. If you want your house redone, do it, otherwise, don't, simple as that :)
