I find it funny, how in the midst of the summer, so many people put their remodeling projects on the back burner. When asked Why? They have all sorts of excusses. Oh, the kids are home from school, vacation time, too hot, blah, blah, blah.
So when is the best time to do a project? Considering how much time is required to: first plan it out; determine budgets; preparing finances; have plans drawn up; get approvals from the building dept.; shop for and select materials; adjust budget and financing options; compare contruction estimates; adjust budget and financing options again; hire craftsmen; apply for permits; etc., etc., etc.,
If you wait till after the summer to get started, the winter Holidays will be your next excuss. After that, the dead of winter will depress you, and you won't want to drive in the snow. Then Spring comes, and you'll be obsessed with gardening, and the kids will busy with soccer.
All said and done, there's no great time to do a project!
Timing isn't going to get any better. One thing that I can guarantee, the longer you wait, the more expensive it will get.
"prices will go up"!!! So Why Wait?
Get yourself in gear, and start those plans, and follow through with them.
