Although most online DIY platforms will tell you that renovating a house can take only a few minutes, it is just a way they use to attract people into depending on them. And, if you are not careful, such statements can easily mislead you, ending up in huge losses and greater disappointments.
Despite the expertise, time and money required in house renovation; it is not a very challenging procedure. In fact, renovating your house can be more fun if you know how to properly organize your house for the project.
Guidelines that can help you in organizing your house renovation
Space Planning and Layout
When thinking of renovating your house, it is important to first come up with a sketch, showing how the refurbishment should take shape. You can sketch the ideas on a piece of paper or even hire an architect to develop a comprehensive space plan for the entire building. While doing this, you should look into the funding and permits for the project.
Depending on how you wish to renovate the house, it is always advisable that the large projects are undertaken first to prepare the ground for subsequent procedures. This means, any defects on features like, the roof, foundation, sidings and windows need to be effectively fixed beforehand. For components that are badly damaged, all should be replaced to secure the building from any impacts of subsequent renovation procedures.
Demolitions and Disposal
Whether you need gut rehab or just simple interior decorations, a few demolitions will have to take place. Thus, you should know the best approaches for demolitions and, also have adequate space where all the waste will be disposed. For safety, you should always let an expert handle the demolitions and disposal.
Other elements of house renovation
The other areas that you should also look into when organizing your house renovation include the following;
- Structural carpentry
- HVAC Ductwork and electrical
- Insulating the walls and ceilings to be worked on
- Installation of new or refurbished windows
- Fine carpentry
- Interior finishes including, painting, wallpapers and others
- Floor covering
- Exterior works for areas and features outside the building
When planning for house renovation, most people usually overlook the auxiliaries. However, they are also quite important in determining the appearance and functionality of the house. In case your house has auxiliary features like, sunrooms, swimming pools or other features detached from the main building, they too should be considered when planning for renovation.
As already hinted above, you should always organize the project such that the larger and more intensive tasks are performed first. This will ensure you can embark on using the house sooner since simple procedures like; interior finishes, painting can even be conducted while you are living therein.
On your own, organizing your house renovation can still be an uphill task even with all the measures discussed above in place.
