They’re the last things we want to think about in the summer but this is the best time to start looking ahead to fall and winter. This is especially true when remodeling is in your plans.
Planning for a fall or winter remodeling is important for many reasons, not the least of which is scheduling. Remodelers can find themselves with pretty full calendars as people book their projects. If you wait till the last minute, you may find yourself waiting even longer for a time when there is an opening in those full schedules.
Now is the time to ensure you book a time best for you.
Summer is also a perfect time to let your imagination wander and consider the many possibilities remodeling offers, as well as an opportunity to explore costs and budgets and determine what is possible for you.
It’s a time to consult with experts, like those at Michael Nash Design, Build & Homes. You can get ideas, estimates and nail down a time for your remodeling project.
This is also the season for visiting. People are social and no season lends itself more to being social than summer does. People drop by to see us and we drop by on friends and family.
Visits to the homes of friends offers a wonderful opportunity to gather ideas as we see other homes and what people may have done to enhance them. They may have redone a kitchen or bathroom, added an extension or any of a number of enhancements.
Seeing a complete project in someone’s home, and seeing how it is used and what it adds, brings a reality to what is otherwise just an idea. We can also consider how we might do it, what changes we would make and also ask questions of the people in the home we are visiting about how they feel about their project now that it’s complete. Is there anything they might have done differently? What has the project added to their lives and to their home’s value?
In other words, it’s a great way to gather ideas, see some real world examples of projects and think about how we might do them.
Summer is a time to let the imagination run but it is also a time to prepare for a project for fall or winter. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by!
