You sound like my older brother. Every time he puts new windows in a house (usually the last thing he fixes), they end up selling the place within a year... And buying something that needs even more work.
He takes his time, and uses it as "brain dead" activity. Built his own garage from scratch, etc. This should be his last house, he's getting old, LOL...
Then there's me. I bought a brand new house. I did a few small upgrades, and just keep things going. 23 years, same bathrooms and kitchen as when I bought it. New flooring, once. And I will NEVER install a floating floor again. Tile all the way, or carpeting.
As long as you enjoy the process, and get value from it... I think it is great.
