House Renovations And You

After being married for five years, my wife and I decided that we were tired of cramped apartment living. We did not like the fact that neighbors were practically on top of us, and there was was no yard. The only greenery around the place was the half-dead boxwood bushes by the apartment entrance. We were ready to have a place of our own.

Since we lived in a modest apartment, we were able to save enough money for a decent down-payment on a house. We linked up with an experienced real estate agent in our area and started looking for the right place. I had a fixer-upper in mind, and my wife wanted a move-right-inner. We discussed the pros and cons of house renovation and concluded that we wanted the ability to change things around to make the design our own.

After a lot of house hunting, we fell in love with a vintage Tudor-style house that was on two acres of land. It had all the clean lines and little oddities that we were hoping for in a home. It did need some renovations; however, we were up to it. We made an offer and did some bargaining. In a couple months, we made the closing and got the keys to our new place.

Fortunately, we paid for a full inspection of the house. The foundation was level and solid, and the house had good bones. The roof was only four years old and the electric and been upgraded to a breaker box. The kitchen was outdated, and we wanted to make it larger. We did some research and received good references for a local home renovation company. They have been in business for years and value their customers. They showed us pictures and gave us testimonials from previous customers who were extremely happy with their work.

The contractor and his project manager sat down with us and showed us their ideas with three-dimensional computer models. They helped us choose flooring, cabinetry, countertops, and lighting that went perfectly with our design. Each step of the way, the project manager updated us on the progress of our kitchen. They got the job done within the timeframe and budget we gave them. We were so pleased with their work that we hired them to help us renovate the porches on the house. We love our new house and are grateful for the peace of mind that an experienced home renovation company offers.
