Every space is different. Every structure has its unique reason for existing.
Prior beginning the processes, here are some useful questions you should answer:
It is important to plan for the future, your new home / renovation shall take into consideration the next 10 years. Do you plan to have a family? Then you should account for when they are teenagers (as teens tend to take more room, need more privacy). Do you plan to work from home? If not now, but perhaps later, do make sure you have the room for an office. Too many time I have seen a poor planning, therefore the home isn’t as comfortable as originally thought.
I can plan for future needs, make easy to modify later areas, designed as stages renovations (Stage 1 now, Stage 2 in 5 years, Stage 3 in 10 years, etc.). It is more effective and cost effective to plan ahead of time. Make sure you know where you want to be. I will inquire about this in the introductory meeting, so that we start with a good plan for years to come.
Resale value is important, as we don’t know what life as in store for us, make sure it also is desirable for others, you might need to move for an opportunity, and would like to sell fast and get top dollars for your home.
