I’m currently in a war with my house, and the house is winning. My beautiful home theater is in ruins. All the work I’ve put into this project has been set back untold weeks and considerable sums of money. Being a homeowner is an exercise in frustration, and honestly, it’s hard to see any light at the end of this tunnel right now.

I’ve been renovating the basement in my new house into a home theater for a couple months now, and the room has seen a remarkable transformation in that time.

Anyone who’s ever lived through a home renovation or construction project can undoubtedly tell you that unexpected problems and cost overruns are pretty much par for the course. As a first-time homeowner trying to build a home theater in the basement, I’m learning the reality of this the hard way. The thing that’s currently sucking the dollars out of my pocket like a Hoover: plumbing.
