House Renovation

Any house renovation can be fun and exciting! It also can add a lot of stress, if you get the wrong contractor.

It's all about the planning! That statement is extremely true for house renovation projects. If you are going to DIY, it helps to make a checklist of all the activities that are going to happen on your project.

Whenever I plan my projects, I prefer to put all the steps into a spreadsheet. If you have MS Excel, or any other type of spreadsheet, you can do the same. Google has a free spreadsheet that you can use, and its free!

Make A List And Check It Twice!

I know you have heard that before, but it is extremely true with any house renovation project. What items should you have on your checklist / spreadsheet? In no particular order:

Last But Not Least!

Finally, the last item on your list. Should you hire a general contractor? Or should you DIY?

You can save a lot of money by hiring your own contractors for each of the trades.

If you do not have time or do not want to deal with it, get a general contractor.

It will cost you more than hiring the contractors yourself, but you will not have to deal with ALL of the headache.
