Home expansion is one of the things that you can do if you are looking to accommodate a bigger family, more pets, or even more appliances. However, it is not always an easy thing to do, especially if you do not know where to start.
Before finalising your plans to add another set of stairs for your Auckland home or add a new bedroom, you should create a checklist that will help you keep things organised. Here are some things you should do before having your home revamped or upgraded:
Know where to keep your things
Your valuables and other things will be affected when you expand your home. This will provide you with an opportunity to get rid some of the things you no longer use. You can hold a garage sale or donate some to charities. You can also rent a self-storage space where you can keep your valuables.
Secure your home
It is not that you do not trust your home builder or contractor, but it is a safety measure that will help you in the long run. You can buy a safe where you can keep some of your jewellery and valuables. You can keep some of your things in one room, but do not forget to lock that room. Finally, install security cameras around the area.
Schedule the activities
To control the traffic and flow of things, you should follow a project timeline. The timeline should include the days and times your contractor will come to your home and do what needs to be done.
Home expansion is never easy. But keeping things organized is always possible. May the tips above help you come up with a sound plan. More importantly, coordinate with your contractor and communicate all your concerns.
