Having decided to stay in your family home, how do you create a comfortable, functional living environment? Would you like to renovate in stages? Are you able to relocate temporarily? Budget and timelines play an important part of the project as well. Don’t plan a special function around a renovation such as a wedding or company coming from out of town. That will just set you up for disaster!
When it comes to forecasting a large renovation project it will take time to strategize, design, order and execute the plan. Some of the reasons people would like to renovate their home is it’s time to replace that dated wood burning fireplace, the railings on their staircase are not up to code, laundry room is too small and there is no place for the kids to play. Lifestyle is another. Their existing small, chopped up space doesn’t work with 3 young children and working parents. We have also encountered families with someone who has special needs and we need to accommodate a wheelchair for accessibility. And let’s face it when it comes to renovating it will always add VALUE to your home.
