You have to check out this video. What a great primer for understanding a renovation! I'm glad they added the disclaimer that this footage was shot over a 3 month period. But it truly gives a sense of all the things that are involved with a renovation. There are so many moving parts to it.
I will say what it can't show is the emotional part of the renovation. The time slaving over decisions, the heartbreak when something doesn't go quite as planned. These are important to understand the process as well.
