- there is a definite idea of what the finished project will look like
- there are sufficient funds to buy the necessary supplies to complete the work, plus a little surplus for the unexpected surprises that always accompany these projects
- there are enough available hours to complete the project while keeping the chaos to a minimum
- there is total support and approval from family members, specifically the spouse, who will be impacted by the work
At the moment I have not met ALL of the above criteria, therefore I am not embarking on a new project.
But I really, really want to.
