Three Summer Renovations To Plan For Now

Home remodels can be a big undertaking. Because planning, designing, permitting, and all of the other factors involved in home updates take time to complete it is crucial to plan your home improvements months in advance. For anyone hoping to have a fresh and new kitchen by the Fourth of July or a mother-in-law suite by Labor Day, now is the time to get this process started. If you are interested in making any of the following home upgrades, contractors are often booked from three to nine months in advance so it is crucial to start planning them now!

Basement Renovations

Basements have a habit of becoming a cluttered, underused space in many people’s homes. Updating your basement and turning it into a home theater, game room, study, or even streamlined storage area is a great way to make the most of this space. Whether you have a clear idea of what you want to turn this space into or you are interested in renovating your basement but don’t know where to being, Harjo Construction is happy to help.

Large-scale Home Additions

For anyone interested in adding a second floor to their space, a cottage (DADU) in their backyard, or a mother-in-law suite, it is time to start planning now! Making large-scale home additions will enable your family to visit with you throughout the summer and ensure everyone has ample space. Because home additions often require additional plumbing, foundation reinforcements, and other complex services that may add to your project’s completion time, it is important to get a head start on your home additions.

Simple Steps To Get Started on Your Remodel:

Sometimes getting started can be the most difficult part of the remodel process. Whatever you’re hoping to upgrade in your home, try a few of the following steps to get started:

  • Declutter. This means tackling those boxes that have been in your basement since the last millennium and donating items you forgot you had to clear out your space.
  • Explore large-scale versus small-scale options. Do you want to turn your space into something completely new or just update the look?
  • Examine your budget. Having an outline of how much you would like to spend will affect your remodel trajectory.
  • Consult a professional. From building permits, to design ideas and more, finding your home remodel contractors is the best way to get started and find your upgrade inspiration.
