Murphy's Law of Home Renovation

OK. Let all see what we can come up with here! I've got a few to start. Feel free to add your own in the comments section! Number 1 is the reason I came up with this....

1) One coat paint - isn't

2) The time taken to complete a project is inversly proportional to the time taken to prepare for the project.

3) You will always find your problem in the least likely location.

4) If your plumbing leaks in one spot, it will leak in an entirely different spot after you have fixed it.

5) User friendly tools - aren't.

If you build a wall that's plumb and square, it will be the only one in the house that is and will look out of place.

My prime Murphyism:
"The older a piece of hardware, the longer it will last." This is particularly applicable to hardware with moving parts, such as door sets.
