- Know What You Want
As the owner of the property, you drive the process and make the decisions. This does not mean you have all the answers on what materials to use or how to build the product. It means you should have a clear vision of what you want the finished product to look like and its purpose! Is it for entertaining, storage, or usable space? What amenities are important to you? Be sure to have clarity on your goals for the space before hiring a contractor to help with design.
