Getting started remodeling your home

wine room

Imagine having a wine room in your home.

Remodeling your home can be a daunting prospect, but it doesn’t have to be. There are hundreds of questions like:

  • How do I start?
  • How do I choose a contractor?
  • How do I know what to do?
  • What’s the best __________ to use for my application?
  • With all the product claims, how do I know what is best?
  • How do I choose a contractor?
  • How can I get an “apples to apples” comparison of different contractor quotes?


Our first series of blog posts will attempt to outline some basic steps to get you on your way to the home of your dreams.

Step 1:  Why & What

Write down why you want to change your home and what areas you think you need to change.

  • What do you like about the space?
  • What don’t you like about the space?
  • How do you currently use the space?
  • How will you use it in the future?
  • How many people will be using the area? How often?
  • Do you want a casual or formal feel?

Clip pictures and articles you see that best describe what you are looking for and what elements you like in each.  Then make a quick note of what you like in each photo and attach it.
