Home renovations can be intimidating no matter how big or small the job is. Most people would just resort to hiring someone to get the job done quickly and easily. My mom on the other hand is not like most people. Many people would only consider doing one task at a time, possibly two at most. Again, my mom is not like many other people and she does not just take on one task, she takes on fifty.
