After working long and hard on the concept, design, plans, drawings and such with an architect, who would've thought that finding the contractor to execute the plan would take even longer and be even more overwhelming?
First, a little bit about our experience here on our Juniper Hill Cottage project.
And finally, we've got some insight on what we would have done differently, and a few tips for you to consider.
I realize that we sorta skipped over the design process here, but I promise we'll get to that in another blog post -- look for an article soon where we talk to some architects about the ins and outs.
In our case, we had a pretty good idea of what we wanted to accomplish and this wasn't the first time through on a construction project for either of us.
We chose to jump right in with an architect so as to fine tune what we were going to do, with the idea that we would then be ready to shift into execution mode.
