Description
Major home remodeling isn't for the faint of heart; there is huge potential for design problems, cost overruns, or just unsatisfactory workmanship. Here, a professional construction manager who masterminded the redesign at New York's famed Avery Fisher Hall as well as a massive institute-wide renovation of St. Luke's Hospital, offers an indispensable guide for homeowners who need to manage a large-scale renovation. There's advice on how to articulate your thoughts clearly to designers, architects, and contractors; tips on negotiating contracts; suggestions for protecting yourself from legal and financial threats; and help understanding warranty claims. Each step--from initial planning through the completed project--is covered in layman's terms, and sample contracts, floor plans, cost estimating worksheets and other forms are provided.
