My husband loves to remodel, buy a fixer upper and turn into our dream home…just to sell it. This is our 3rd house. I love it (I loved them all) and it’s about 1/2 way remodeled. Then he dropped the bomb. When we are done, we should sell it, buy a more reclusive house with more property. I don’t think I can do this again! I’m 43 and sick of tired of drywall, chopsaws, screws, and paint samples. We turn these dumps into places of beauty, with OUR visions just to do it again?!!? This is his life, and makes him happy, it makes me miserable. I don’t want him unhappy, but then I’m sacrificing my happiness. /vent

Araya: Compromise. Make the next house your forever home and he can continue to flip houses on the side- leaving your home alone.

My husband used to do this. Among other issues, the constant moving took a toll on our marriage. During our 6 years together we moved 8 times. He is now my ex husband.
It’s his turn to compromise and I agree with Jules that the next house is your forever home but he can buy and flip investment properties to his heart’s content.

beachbride1216: Wow, that is a lot of moving in 8 years!!!! That would take a toll on anybody!
Sort of along the same lines as julies1949 was saying with a compromise. My husband loves his projects. In our last house, the whole basement was a project and this one, the whole house is (though much smaller than the last. It is coming along nicely, but I would like to be able to ive and not worry about which reno is up next. We eventually will move from this house (and rent it) and I said, NO MORE RENOS! But hubby said, well what if we had a house with an unfinished basement and I could have my projects and it wouldn’t interfere with the rest of the house or be pressing. I said I’d think about it but it is a decent compromise.
