There are a lot of ways to remodel a home, in terms of how much time and effort you can put in, versus the resources that are available.
Determining what remodeling method is best for your family is an important first step. The four main ways to accomplish a remodel are Do It Yourself, Self-Contracting, General Contracting, and Design/Build.
Are you a DIY’er?
Do you feel confident enough to self-contract, or act as your own general contractor?
A design/build option is for you, if you are limited by time or your experience in remodeling, or you simply would rather have someone else take care of everything.

What are some other things to consider before you remodel?
Before you embark on a remodel, take a look at your available free time, vs. your skill set, and compare that to your budget to determine what remodeling method fits you best.
