To start with you should have a good idea of what you want to spend and accomplish such as we need 2 more bedroom and a full bathroom or we want 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a master bedroom with walk in closet and full bathroom with a tub and a separate shower. You get the idea
Once you have at least a tentative budget and an idea of what you want to accomplish then it time to look for a good builder/contractor and get some bids.
Most knowledgeable builder will give you a free estimate without having to invest in plans up front.
If you do hire an independent architect you can plan on spending many time more then if you go through your builder and it’s not only the money you spend but you may fine them not up to snuff for the city and your builder may refuse to use them witch leaves you shopping for a builder to fit your plan
Take your time finding a builder. A great way to find a builder is by talking to other people that have had the experience. You can also look to the Internet, the Better Business Bureau Pages or the yellow pages
You’ll find that a good builder want to know that you and they are compatible and they aren’t just trying to write up the job and get your deposit, as some sales persons may do.
Pick a builder not only by price but also by their experience and referrals. Make sure it’s someone you trust. If you have doubts go on to some one else.
Never pull the permits for a job someone else is going to do this will make you liable for the job and leave them without any liability whatsoever
Once you’ve hired a builder have faith in him. Don’t be afraid to ask questions as the project goes along.
This is a large undertaking but do not let it overwhelm you to your builder it fairly simple. Be prepared for the interior to take sometime, as there are many steps and inspections and the finishing touches are what make the project a work of art and pride.
