Tracey bought her two-storey, detached home last December for $380,000. She fell in love with the house the second she walked through the door. The original wood trim and character of the house won her over immediately. Tracey recognized that there was work that needed to be done to modernize the space and felt pretty confident that she could handle the job on her own, with a little help from the web and her favorite renovation TV shows. Ripping out drywall, carpeting and ceiling tiles were the easy parts. Now that the demo is done, Tracey is feeling overwhelmed by the electrical, plumbing and re-drywalling that still need to be completed. Her home is a disaster and she is living out of a single room. When she comes home from work, Tracey is no longer in love with her home, now all she sees is a long list of work to be completed. Tracey is at her physical limit and needs to get the upper unit finished and rented. The rental income will allow her to finish her own space and eventually, to live an ordinary life.
