THE 1-2-3’s OF BUILDING YOUR HOME AND REMODELING
Choosing a Home Builder / Remodeler
If you’re in the market for a new home, you should shop for your builder as carefully as you shop for your home. Whether you are buying a condo, a townhouse, a house in a subdivision, or a custom built house, you want to know that you are buying a good quality home from a reputable builder. Once you have thought about the type of house you want, where should you look for a builder? First, check with your local builders association to obtain a list of builders who construct homes in your area.
How to Build a House
You’ve purchased that idyllic little plot of land that you’ve dreamed of for years – the perfect place to build a house and grow your family – but now what? Building a house is a complex process, because there are a lot of different factors to consider that go beyond the simple building. Deciding to build a house is exciting – you want to get started right away – but you need to slow down, relax and make a solid plan.
How to Plan a Remodeling Project
Maybe you’ve purchased a new house that you love – but it lacks the kitchen amenities that you need. Or possibly you’ve inherited a home that is absolutely beautiful, but the gorgeous claw-foot bathtub isn’t entirely practical. Or perhaps you’ve found yourself in an empty nest, and that basement rec room could use some repurposing. Whether you need to recreate one room or renovate your entire house, it’s essential to carefully plan your house remodeling project.
