Renovating a cottage can be fun and exciting, but it can also be stressful. When there are a lot of moving parts, your goals can get swept away. Some simple first steps, and teamwork, will keep your project moving smoothly. Whether you’re re-doing your kitchen or your entire house, there are a few things Christine says you should keep in mind before diving head first into renovating a cottage.
1. Go in with a Plan
When it comes to substantial renovations involving demolishing walls and constructing additions, it can be time consuming. If you have a final vision in mind, though, this amount of time is substantially less. From start to finish, Christine and Gabe have the renovating process down to 4 to 6 months. “That’s because we’re so organized and have a vision for what we want before demo happens.”
