Cost of Remodeling and Building
I know you are all wanting to update your homes after looking at them for the last 15 months! (Me too, by the way!) I just received an update on the cost of building materials: on average, costs have risen 26.1% across the United States over the last year. In Bend, anecdotally, I can tell you that we’ve seen a 333% increase in plywood costs alone in the last 6 months. Our building materials supply chain is creaky at best, and broken at worst. What does this mean for you? If you want to remodel your home in the next 6-9 months, we highly recommend methodically planning it out and being decisive when it comes to design decisions. Above all, being patient is the best thing you can do.
We love remodels and more importantly, we also like to make sure our clients have as accurate figures as possible. When you decide a remodel is in your future, please have an idea of how much you are willing to invest in your home. We want to respect your budget and the best way to do that is to have an accurate understanding of your scope of work and budget. If you have no idea what things cost, please ask. We’ll give our best guesstimate, but please know it is exactly that — a guesstimate.
We are accepting new clients for the fall to start a kitchen, bath or whole house remodel.
Summertime and the (Outdoor) Living is Easy
It’s not too late to spiff up the patio with a fire pit and some sexy new lounge chairs. We are drooling over these chairs and sofa with this fire pit. What do you think?
Do you like dining alfresco? I sure do! Being outside where I can enjoy the beauty of my backyard with an ice cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc in hand, some great music and the grill fired up is my idea of the perfect evening. Here’s a new favorite dining room table and gorgeous chairs under a beautiful fabric awning.
We can help you find just the right look for your patio and have a wide array of products at our disposal. Contact us today for a design consultation!
