I’m totally trolling you with these… Quotes of things (specifically being content with what you have) to consider before making home improvements.
“He who is contented is rich.”
“A contented mind is the greatest blessing a man can enjoy in this world.”
“I am content; that is a blessing greater than riches; and he to whom that is given need ask no more.”
Ok, done trolling. I was legitimately surprised how many more quotes I could find about never being satisfied and always striving for more/better/etc… Anyway, it sounds like you already have a solid plan.
The one actual real sort of quote that is relevant is something to the effect of:
The reason there are no good general contractors for small residential projects is that if they were any good, they would no longer be doing small residential projects.
