The whole purpose of creating a home improvement "Wishes,
Wants & Needs" list is to guide your efforts. The "needs" always
comes first, no matter what. Be sure to have a family pow-wow to make sure this
list is complete and accurate before contacting the Contractor.
You just moved in and may still have boxes decorating your
floor. Stop unpacking! If you want to do some remodeling, this may be the best
time. Remember that replacing any flooring requires moving EVERYTHING out of the
room! This is always easier before you get settled than after. Give some thought
to the convenience factor of your remodeling projects. And plan for the least
amount of trouble. Talk to your remodeler about doing the project with the least
amount of fuss and muss. This may mean you group the project a little differently
than you would have thought, but if it diminishes the grief it may be worth it.
