So... we were behind schedule almost from the very beginning (due to the repairs needed to the staircase and subfloor being beyond what we anticipated), and needed to plan an escape route, or potentially suffer the damaging kind of burnout. It’s a seductive myth that even if you love what you do, you don’t need to take strategic “me”-time. Time away from the reno (which we DO love to do) only makes us love it more. And who doesn’t need more love? Yup yup.
