Unlike some home makeover shows would have you believe, a good remodel is not done in a few days, or even a few weeks. What these programs don’t account for is the amount of planning that takes place prior to demolition and construction. That’s where this remodeling planner comes into play. Use it to get your thoughts on paper by answering some essential questions about your family and lifestyle; be inspired by local remodeling projects; then find out what you need to ask your contractor. Making changes to your home is a major undertaking—Setting your goals and expectations early will help throughout the decision-making process and produce the best results.
