Getting ready to do a home remodel?
Don't forget the work before the work!
The biggest and most common remodeling mistakes occur long before the work begins.
We don’t ask the right questions.
- What do I want?
- Why do I want it?
We ask the wrong questions.
- What materials should I use?
- How much will it cost?
We get into the weeds too soon.
- Stay “big picture” as much as possible.
We don’t get enough advice.
- We’re all a certain degree of “house blind” when it comes to our own place.
We get advice from the wrong people.
- Specialists give specialist advice.
- Vested interests give vested interest advice.
Are we renovating or remodeling?
- Renovate - to restore to good condition; make new or as if new again; repair; to reinvigorate; refresh; revive.
- Remodel - to alter a form or structure; change; reconstruct.
