Building and renovating a house is not an easy thing. There are many things that you must understand and give special attention, such as financing, design, and time management. However, that does not mean renovating a house is not recommended. In fact, according to various studies, home renovation is able to provide an excitement for the owner, especially with the imagined future results will be achieved.
By renovating your house you also will give new color and atmosphere to your house, so that you no longer feel bored and tired spending your time there. Here are four trivial but important things that you should know and understand when building or renovating your house:
- Estimated time of completion. It is important for you to know the estimated time completion of your remodeling project because it affects a lot of things, including financing and licensing. Understand that your remodeling project, be it small or large, would a bit interfere with neighbors around, so you’ll want to know the exact period of the process and ask permission for that time.
- A place to store the material. One of the most important things that is often overlooked by homeowners when making renovations is the availability of a place to store materials during the renovation process. Do not get overwhelmed when the materials you purchase begin to arrive. Therefore, determine first where the material will be placed so you can easily access it, but do not disturb neighbors or use the road. In this case, you also have to think about the comfort of others.
- Temporary house. For a large-scale renovation process, sometimes it is impossible for you to live in the house for a certain period of time. It would be better if you have thought about this in advance and have a temporary house for your family until the renovation project is complete. If staying at the hotel is too expensive for you, you might consider renting a house or apartment temporarily. But if you insist on staying in the house, make sure you are ready with the noise, dust, and dirt you will encounter everywhere. Also, be sure to have a separate bathroom between your family with construction workerse.
- Make sure you do not violate the rules. Do not forget to always consult with the people who are experienced or expert in home construction permits, to prevent any accidental violation. Try to always have good relations with neighbors and occasionally point out your renovation plans to ask for their opinion. It could be your remodeling plan will make them feel uncomfortable later. For example, if the position of the new window on the second floor of your house faces your neighbor’s bathroom window, it would violate their privacy. It would be good if you ask first.
