Wanted: Remodeling Coach


As reported in yesterday’s New York Times, in the great remodeling challenge, not only do I need a General Contractor, but I also need a Remodeling Coach. Or House Therapist. Or Kitchen Whisperer. Or when it comes down to it, Translator and Overall Mensch.

It’s comforting to see that I’m not the only person that has difficulty grasping the scope of their renovation. And not the only one who is overwhelmed, if not paralyzed, by the chain of effect of decision making. I thought that my problem was that I didn’t have a GC, but what I really need is project manager who is working in my best interest by dispensing advice, researching various sources, and talking me down from the ledge. But how can I afford a professional hand holder, when I can’t even afford a GC? Isn’t that what friends are for?
