78 - Spectacular Solo Question #2
Show Notes

Suzanne from Bozeman asked such a great question it gets a SECOND podcast but this time focusing on how far is too far when remodeling in general (instead of just an addition). Tons of cool issues but here is a "gem" from each of the boys.

STEVE: Consider re-design before adding new design. How well are existing spaces being used? Maybe reconfigure/repurpose as the most efficient remodel?

PETE: EVERY remodeling project should start with a full hygrothermal building assessment.

JAKE: All remodeling projects need to start with aligning client expectations with the custom set of constraints each unique structure brings. Do the best your can/as much as you can to any portion of the building you "touch" as part of the remodel.
