Here are a few things you need to do before you even begin a home renovations project:

  • Determine exactly where you want the addition and how it will tie into the rest of the home.
  • Talk to your financial advisor and set a budget for the project.
  • Set a start and completion date for project and begin checking with construction companies and electricians to make the arrangements.
