Plan Your Home Remodel: The Design and Drawing Phase
If home renovation is on your to-do list for 2015, it is time for you to start organizing and designing your home remodel. While you may be inclined to assume that working with a contractor means that the task of creating the design for your remodel is unnecessary, it is important that you have the creative ideas for your home outlined in a detailed and efficient manner. This will ensure that the contractor and architect are able to make your design dreams come to life in an effective and timely manner. Gathered here are just a few helpful tips for planning your remodel:
§ Before you set your heart on any remodel ideas, it is important that you check the local building codes, ordinances, and regulations to ensure that your dreams are realistic. Figuring this out in advance will allow you to feel confident that issues are less likely to arise in the midst of your construction.
§ The second step is to create a budget and a wish list for your remodel. This means establishing exactly what you want and comparing it to what you can comfortably afford. Completing these two tasks in unison is important.
§ Take time to develop a basic sketch so that you can discuss the most effective way to approach the project and see your dreams come true. This can be done by utilizing a drawing program, such as Sketch Up.
§ Think about how new patio and entry doors might enhance your renovation. Will you be able to include Bi-Fold patio doors to your remodeled living room to increase your living and entertaining space? Will your home upgrades change the entire story of your home, calling for a new entry door?
