Artisan Renovations

Remodeling is about adapting your home to meet the needs and desires of your current lifestyle.

If you are thinking about a remodeling project for your home, from a minor “facelift” to a major renovation, some preliminary planning will help you decide what to tackle and what to leave as is. At The Farlow Group, we will work closely with your designer or architect, or you can work with us directly to formulate your project from beginning to end.

If you are just beginning to consider what your renovation will entail, you may find it helpful to organize your decision process into three broad categories: logistics, budget, and resources.

LOGISTICS: Logistics basically means choosing what to include in your project, and whether you will remain in your home while the work is underway, or stay somewhere else.  Knowing the scope of the project will certainly affect your decision about whether or not to remain at home.  Employing a well qualified contractor, The Farlow Group, will ensure that details and strategies are developed with efficiency, and according to prevailing codes and standards.

BUDGET: Have a clear understanding of how much money you have available to spend. Remember to include amounts in your budget for design, demolition and debris disposal, construction, and a place to stay if you will not remain at home. Costs of some of these aspects may be difficult to determine if you are not engaged in the building industry. We work with clients to help establish the scope of their projects and determine costs.

RESOURCES: Once you have considered what you want to include in your project and how much you have in your budget, if you have not yet contacted a building professional, there are some very good reasons to consider The Farlow Group. Try to have an understanding of how much of your time will be involved in selecting components and accomplishing the work, and what else you normally do in your life that you may not have time for when performing your own renovations. A qualified contractor may seem an added expense, but may be a critical resource for accomplishing your goals, and actually provide a savings of both time and money. Contractors know the requirements of the building codes and are experienced in dealing with all of the agencies having jurisdiction over the work. We will also manage the tradesmen, deliveries, and payments needed to keep the work moving.

A home renovation is a great way to upgrade your life, and your style. Call on us to work with you to plan and execute your renovation or addition, and start enjoying your new private space, or amenities to share with family and friends.
