As you’d expect, usually renovations are more difficult and not as straight forward. There is always a big question mark hanging there as things come up compared to new construction, such as things that weren’t planned for or didn’t know about at the start and have to alter the plan and/or the budget.
As for the phases involved in renovating an existing home, it’s a very similar process upfront as a new custom home build with one additional phase — that being demolition. Beforehand, there are a few important questions to be addressed:
- Does the existing home meet the current building codes?
- Does the existing home work with the new construction?
- Will the homeowner have the ability to finance “the unexpected?”
