Thinking About Your Own ? Renovation
Here are some parting words of wisdom from Christine.
“Make sure you have a vision of
what you want. Get to know the home’s history, neighborhood, town, and draw inspiration from them. The biggest problem is people don’t know what they want.”
“Name the style of the project. This
gives you guardrails.” “Play around most with the floor plan,”
Christine says. “I’ve never executed a project based on the first floor plan that came to mind. Be open to making floorplan changes once the initial structure gets built. It’s better to make changes then than when the drywall is up.” “It’s a good idea to assign roles of responsibility to those involved,” Christine counsels. “Make a pact not to get upset with each other. Projects like this can ruin relationships, but it brought us together because it’s something we love to do.”
