    Generally, ANY remodeling project you do on your own house. Its the "cobbler's kids do not have shoes" syndrome. The question should be "what is the most time consuming remodel you have done and are still married?", because many marriages do NOT survive a lengthy remodel.

    "what is the most time consuming remodel you have done and are still married?"
    That's a good question. Makes me laugh.

    In the 90's I was doing work on "our" home. After doing about $90,000 worth of improvements to the home, I was told that from now on I wouldn't get a say on what projects I would be working on and paying for. It was too stressful for her to discuss what I was going to do for her. I decided the "job" was no longer worth the reward.

    More than ten years later, I now find myself doing home improvements for my GF, and she thinks I'm wonderful. The biggest problem, is that I now have two homes to improve. Hers and mine.
    But I'm having fun doing it.
