Value Driven Home Improvements for Less Than $1,000

In a recent interview, Neil Parsons, owner of Design Build Planners, was asked the following questions about basic home improvement projects that may be achieved for less than $1,000. Q: For homeowners looking to make home improvement upgrades, but only have a $1,000 budget, which areas of the home should they focus on? Why? A: First, I believe that all homeowners should have a list of projects that need to be done. As we all have learned, anything committed in writing is more likely to get done.

One reason is goal setting. People will want to get through the needs as quick as possible to be able to start on the wants. Continue reading

Roomier ones exceed 100 square feet. At the same time, a master bathroom upgrade was a popular request for many in homes built earlier. Often the remodeling work would include stealing some space from a bedroom or a closet to achieve the room required. Continue reading
