You’ve just unlocked the equity in your home with a new home equity line of credit and you’re looking at the possibility of remodeling a few rooms or converting the garage space. You’ve even spent the last few months sifting through resources like Houzz, Pinterest, and numerous design magazines in hopes of finding that perfect design idea that complements the style of your home while still meeting your basic needs. You’re feeling a bit overwhelmed and the task is starting to become a bit time consuming, but you’re determined to stay sane, organized, practical, and patient as you look for ways to transform your home. Sound familiar?
Whether you’re a new homeowner or simply looking to improve the space you are currently in, we’ve taken the liberty of providing a few home remodeling makeovers for your consideration.
First of all, let’s begin by taking a look at some of the advantages of remodeling an existing space in your home or utilizing your existing garage space for the conversion.
The advantages are seven-fold:
1. The structure is already in place
2. The proximity to your existing residence is already there
3. The attachment to the existing residence is not an issue
4. The time frame for construction will be shortened
5. Any extension of utilities should be shorter
6. The overall construction cost should be much less
7. If done properly, the marketability and value of your home appreciates
The kitchen, home office, and the entertainment room are just a few of the more common remodels. Others might include the master bedroom, master bath, guest bedroom, combinations, studio apartments, sound studio room, family rooms, and baby rooms for that “new arrival.”
