The Roller Coaster

The Roller Coaster

I gave a presentation with a panel of former clients on hand to answer questions several years ago at a remodeling show.

I created a PowerPoint to share my thoughts about the process of remodeling, but it was the panel of experts that made the big impression.

Later, my web guy made a cool video using my PowerPoint as a foundation. He added music and we had it on the site for a bit, but during one of many evolutions of this site, it got lost. The good news is that I have the original PowerPoint and there is hope for resurrecting the project.

The inspiration came from a friend, David Lupburger, who wrote a book on the subject and likened it to the Kübler-Ross stages of death.

The roller coaster reminds you that you are embarking on a ride. You end up safely back at the starting point. There are highs and lows, there is excitement and dread, and occasionally you are flipped upside down, and wish it would just be done. At some point, you realize you’ve put your complete trust in the operator’s hands.

Oh Boy!

Oh Boy!

The analogies just keep coming. There is wind in your hair, you are completely distracted from your normal cares and worries, your senses are on heightened state of alert. You find yourself checking your safety equipment, wishing it was over then, when the excitement is over, thinking strongly about doing it again (or not!)

You are paying for the ride, and you know that when it is over, you can get back to your normal, daily life, and that you will have a lasting better space in which to live. You usually just remember the fun parts, but if prodded you can recall being terrified for a bit.

At Levco we get it and are all about enjoying the ride. If you are looking for a contractor that can get you back safely, we are just a phone call away.
