I've been through one renovation too many know that this two-year time frame for completion is pie-in-the-sky malarkey.
Every renovation generates more than enough home equity to cover the cost, because prices go nowhere but up.
Despite promises of renovation by the Lebanese government, no major progress has been made in restoration.
c.1400, renovacyoun "spiritual rebirth," also "rebuilding, reconstruction," from Middle French renovation (13c.), or directly from Latin renovationem (nominative renovatio) "a renewing, renewal; a rest," noun of action from past participle stem of renovare "renew, restore," from re- "again" (see re-) + novare "make new," from novus "new" (see new).
