It's meant to be something you will enjoy. Think on it as moving into a new house. First you clean everything to see what needs to be done, then you fix things one at a time until it's ready, then you live & enjoy it.
For instance, our trailer isn't done:
We need an extra bed for one of our children, my DH intends to do it after the new year, until then my child sleeps on a camp cot.
We need a new fridge. We've done without cooking in it until we get it (Next month).
Remember, most people don't get one and do everything at once. We got our useable and now just work on projects at our leisure.
