Ask the builder

We are planning to renovate what do I need to do?

1. Ask yourself why do you want the renovation? Set out key aspects of the changes you would like eg. Additional bathroom, more storage, teenagers retreat, adults retreat, refresh tired bathrooms or kitchen

2. Look at your finances, know how much you have to play with, its a lot of money so know how much you have to spend before you start. Make sure you can get your priorities list done before sorting out the wish list

3. Contact MainLayne and meet with the Builder, we can tell you if what you are wanting/needing is realistic to the existing home structure and what options may be available and organise a meeting with a Design Drafter.

Do I need to go shopping for my finishes and fixtures?

It is always a good idea to have a look around to find the look that you like.  It will also give you an indication of the various costs of these items and the different product ranges available.

However, if you find this process too overwhelming we have suppliers that can give you options, the pro and cons of each type of product and take the stress out of the decision making.  We have strong relationships with many suppliers so if time is NOT on your side this may be a good option for you.
