‘SLOW RENO’ TIPS
Be adaptable – you might have to change your plans due to budget constraints, or because what you originally wanted doesn’t work for your lifestyle further down the line.
Whatever funds you put aside for building work, enjoy each stage of the process and finish one stage at a time where possible.
Taking time over the planning and design stages helps you to adapt if any problems arise.
Try to have a contingency in your budget, but be prepared for the fact that it will probably cost more.
