How to Save Money Remodeling

It's a Fact: Remodeling Costs money!  The good news is there are lots of simple ways to cut costs.  You can shop the surplus isles at the lumberyard for windows and doors, do your own demolition, reuse materials, and incorporate energy-saving features.  But the real key to saving money is good planning and doing as much as possible with the space you already have.  A good contractor and architect can help with that, and so can federal and state tax incentives.  The first question to ask: HOW LONG DO I PLAN TO LIVE IN THIS HOME?  The answer to this question is your first step toward wise remodeling decisions.
