I have a confession to make.
I was beginning to feel poorly as I watched my next door neighbor add 30 per cent more living space onto her [tag-tec]house[/tag-tec]. In fact, the new back is actually prettier than the old front, if you like that kind of architecture. And to be honest, I’m not sure exactly what kind of [tag-ice]architecture[/tag-ice] it is.
So I went to one of those fancy bookstores where you can buy very expensive nutty coffees and I purchased an extremely high-priced kitchen remodeling mag; just in case my ship comes in anytime soon so I can compete with the neighbors.
I think I paid $16.00 for it. Whew.
But thanks to CNN Money, I can breathe easier. They have an informative article The 5 Dumbest Renovation Trends.
And I got to it just in time; before my dreams got a little out of hand.
Now I’m wiser and my money is going into better, more lucrative and less fun investments.
Mainly because I now know great rooms are out, all that recessed lighting is a fad that’s seen its better days, and your house doesn’t need super- sized [tag-self]garages[/tag-self] and kitchens in order to sell for more.
So it’s okay to have a cozier lair.
