What calendar dates factor into your thoughts about renovating? A renovation schedule, unlike the delivery of a new car, needs more than a day or two of flexibility for a variety of reasons. It’s important to know this because a date like December 25th can’t be rescheduled to another more convenient week. So it’s best to build a reasonable contingency into your schedule. And in my view, timing is just the last of four dimensions of your project’s feasibility.
The first three dimensions are: by-laws, scope of work, and budget. A project that appears feasible on each individual level may look different when all four are correctly woven together. You’ll need experienced help to assess this. There may be no one discipline that can adequately perform such an assessment. However, someone who has active lines of communication with all involved disciplines can. Getting a renovation plan started correctly is essential to the project’s success. This is the first of many reasons for the efficacy of the design/build method.
