3 Ways to Avoid Chaos in Residential Remodeling
By Ryan Siebert
Whether you live in a new construction home, or a 100 year old home you will at some point in time take on a custom residential remodeling project.
1 – Know your budget
2 – Know what you want, as a family
I say the words, “as a family” very cautiously. You and your family will not always be on the same page. For custom residential remodeling make sure you talk to the entire family about the selections and about how the remodel work will effect their lives. Make sure that you are able to have conversations with your loved ones about your thought process. Early in my relationship with my wife we were both stoked about finishing our family room area. I had visions of leather recliners, multiple TV’s, and dark colors. When she showed me her ideas, I knew we were way off. I was able to deal with my frustration right away and as any good husband does, I gave into her idea of a family room. The key is we didn’t waste money buying product we didn’t want, or hours at the selection shops debating. We had clear direction once the decision was made and we moved forward.
3 – Work with someone you are comfortable with
