Renovate Your Vancouver Dream Home

Renovating Your Vancouver BC Dream Home can be an exciting and educational experience to say the least.  Many prospective dream home remodelers don’t really understand the scope of a major home remodeling project.  If you are in a position to be building or remodeling your dream home you are a very lucky person.  Many people have waited and saved for years to earn enough money to start building their dream home.

How Will You Handle The Stress?

Once the building or home renovation process begins the stress may at times be overwhelming.  Building your dream home takes the coordination of a lot of people and making sure all those people are doing what you want them to do can be a difficult task.  Hiring a well known, and efficient building contractor will help make the process less stressful.

To help manage the stress that comes with this time you can follow these simple steps.

1. Be Prepared – Meet with your builder several times if you have too.  Ask LOTS of questions.  You can never have enough info.

2. Budget – Have a realistic budget and stick to it! One of the biggest mistakes people make in new real estate is not properly planning their budget. Create a thorough list of all your costs and leave a big cushion. You don’t want to get halfway done your dream home and run out of money.

3. Get Professional Help – If you are not an experienced contractor then don’t try to act as your own general contractor. It will be worth your money to hire someone else that is trained and knows what they are doing.  You’ll get quality people working on your project and most licensed contractors can provide you with a warranty on the work completed, or in the case of a new home, your new home warranty coverage.

Sticking To The Timeline

When designing your timeline make sure and leave plenty of cushion for rainy days and other weather related issues that may arise.  There might be mistake with materials that could cause a delay, the idea is to just be prepared.

Ask questions if you are unsure of anything. Discussing the subject openly with your contractors before the building begins will make it easier to develop your timeline. Most contractors are very good at predicting real timelines, but they choose to bid shorter ones to get your work.
