Summary, etc.: "Most homeowners are uninformed and ill-prepared for big-ticket remodels. The knowledge they do have often comes from reality-TV home makeover shows that gloss over the ingredients essential to success. This book by a construction management pro gives homeowners increased confidence in making remodeling decisions, and peace of mind. Learn the six biggest mistakes people make when building a remodeling dream team, painless ways to shave the budget, what to do when your contractor isn't listening, and where to find financing. In the coming years, home remodeling activity is projected to accelerate, maintaining a growth rate above its long-term trend, according to Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies. Use the guide's exercises and checklists to help you develop and articulate your remodeling goals, make decisions that align with your vision, and manage details, relationships, and budget."--
