Anyone remodeling their home right now? What are you doing to it? We are in the process of re-doing the guest bathroom, and changing fixtures, etc. We are newbies at this though.

  • We have re-modeled or should I say...rebuilt, 3 homes. The best advice I can give to negotiate prices..Even at Major Retailers. If you are doing major projects they will usually cut the costs for you and you can save big bucks. Also, check out books at the library for help and tips. Good Luck and Happy Home Building!

  • Yes (sigh) We just finished our guest bath too. What a process!

  • Hey Hun! We are in the process of finding a contractor to build a casita... first timers at this as well. But, not at having things upgraded around the house =)

  • I think you should find a builder or carpenter you trust and do everything and anything he suggests. He knows what he's talking about. Friends husbands who are builders work well....
