After 10 years of designing and remodeling homes, it finally occurred to me that it might be helpful to many of you if I started posting the answers of common questions I get asked everyday.  Welcome to “remodeling FAQ” where I am going to answer all of your questions. Questions like – 

How much does it cost to remodel a _________? (What things cost)

What’s the first thing I need to do? (What is the order of things)

Do I need to pull permits for what I am doing? 

What’s the difference between custom cabinets and pre-fabricated cabinets?

How do I go about removing an interior wall?

My cabinets are fine, can I just get them stained a different color?

Can I tile on top of my current tiles?

It is going to take one blog entry at a time, but if there’s something you would like me to answer right away, just ask. 

My goal is to save you time, money, and any unnecessary stress when it comes to remodeling. I am going to show you how to work smart, stay on schedule, stay on budget, and absolutely how not to get ripped off.  I promise to be as brutally honest as possible and to always serve in your best interest. Remodeling is not always exciting reading, but I guarantee you that my words will equip you with the right knowledge to pull off a successful remodeling project.
