While large house painting  jobs and renovations can take days or even weeks to complete. Refer to your time plan to make sure you have sufficient time before you begin.

If you’ve only got limited time, it might be beneficial to choose smaller and less time-consuming tasks first.

I can related so well to all the points that you have mentioned here. Just recently, I shifted house. So, I had done the same things that you wrote about. I particularly take keen interest in knowing that the plumbing systems are ok or not.
