Having a DIY conservatory constructed sounds exciting and challenging at the same time. Expect that it would require you not just your money, but your time, energy, and social activities; particularly if you want to be more hands-on on the project.
But there should be limits or else you will compromise important things that you would regret later on. Below are some examples:
1. Your bank
Since you have already had the cost estimated with the builder, stick to it. It is possible that you will get into a situation where you have to spend more than what you have estimated but stick to the need and not the want.
Stick to your plan. If changes have to be made, go for the most practical and compatible alternative. Don’t break your bank.
2. Your family time
Yes, it is possible that you will have to sit and discuss with your builders frequently, or you may encounter issues that would stress you out, but don’t compromise quality time with your family. This is most important when you have young children who need your attention and good mood.
If possible, include your family with discussions about the project. It doesn’t matter how small they are; children are sensitive enough. They would feel better if they know what’s going on rather than guessing what has happened to you.
3. Your property
Finally, don’t compromise your property for the sake of adding more attraction to your conservatory. Changing a big chunk of landscape in your property, just because you want a small glass house built sounds vain.
Your DIY conservatory should be something that would remind you of hard work and diligence; not guilt. Don’t be compromised to fully enjoy the functions of this new addition to your home. Be creative and think of more ways to make it smooth sailing.
