Curbed Goes Myth Busting

August 31, 2016

The Curbed Handbook includes a very helpful rundown, 11 Renovation Myths by Mary Jo Bowling. The best line in it belongs to Dale Conant of Atlanta Design & Build when he says the home renovation process is like childbirth: "the pain fades in time." Here are the myths they call out:


  • Myth #1: Remodeling is Easy

  • Myth #2: Remodeling is Inexpensive

  • Myth #3: You Can Do It Yourself

  • Myth #4: The Low Bid is the Best Value

  • Myth #5: Products That Look the Same, Are the Same

  • Myth #6: Remodels Always Take Longer Then Planned

  • Myth #7: Remodels Always Cost More Than Bid

  • Myth #8: Good Planning Can Outwit Surprise

  • Myth #9: You Can Make It Up As You Go Along

  • Myth #10: Fancy Trappings Make a Good Contractor

  • Myth #11: You Will Be Bitter When It's Over
