When consulting with a prospective client, we find ourselves offering the same advice no matter the size or scope of a project. Though it may seem like common sense, we recommend that you start with a reputable, licensed contractor, who will pull a permit for your project and provide a written contract with exhibits that include describing the project in three dimensions – a plan, a budget, and a written scope of work. With those items in place, it’s hard to end up somewhere you did not plan to be at the end of a project. Do as much planning and finalizing of decisions for your project, including all the cool features and fun frills that will make it your own, on the front end of your project before the first shovel of dirt is turned. It’s never a good idea to start a project without a plan, a budget, and a firm grasp on where you are headed.
