Go Design residential drafting services in Penshurst continue with more questions to help you decide if you should renovate or detonate.
Are you struggling with the decision of renovating or detonating? The experts in residential drafting Sydney continue this week with questions to ask yourself when it comes to deciding which way you should go.
Are you aware that a significant renovation can cost more than a re-build?
This is the unfortunate truth of renovating homes. It relates largely to renovation be a bespoke, unique-to-the-individual-home activity that is time consuming and labour intensive. Brand new homes can be built quickly, using systems and modern materials that maximise efficiency and save time.
There are of course, ways to capitalise on this to create benefit in your renovation. However, this basic truth can undo a lot of home-owners and renovation is a mental game as much as anything else
Have you completed due dilgence?
You may not really want to knock down your home. You might simply love the character of you home. That may be the case however do you truly know how structurally sound your current home is? Do you know much about the existing state of your home, and what you might have to potentially repair or replace to make your renovation work? Get some good advice on how costly your renovation will that be, and how much of your renovation budget will need to be dedicated to the structure itself.
Do you love 'brand new' or do you prefer 'pre-loved'?
There are two types of home owner. One who loves the story of their home as well as its quirks. The other loves a new home that they can make their own, one that nobody has lived in before. If you are the second then it's certainly worth knocking down and rebuilding if possible.
Our residential drafting designers love creating new homes however we just love renovating old ones and the idea of breathing new life into old homes is exciting and a great challenge.
