I do use EF migrations but I'm still not a fan. I prefer to develop in both SQL Server and C# separately. You can work around issues in various ways

Open a Nu-Get Package manager console and enable migrations for your project

Enable-Migrations -ContextTypeName YourProject.Models.ApplicationDbContext -Force

You can migrate whatever you have in your migration folder as follows (I've just shown the initial one) with or without the ignore changes flag

add-migration Initial
Add-Migration Initial -IgnoreChanges

Finally, force through the changes

Update-Database -Force

I always copy the contents of the "Configuration" file because that can get overwritten when I don't want. It can also add duplicate data to the database if your are not careful when it runs on a migration - so you'll need to code around that.

If I'm really stuck, I simply delete all migrations, truncate the migrations table, then perform an initial migration again.
