Budgeting for an Asheville Master Bathroom Remodel
If you had just one room in your home that you could redo, which one would it be? Bathrooms, of course, always reach the top or near the top of that list for most homeowners. That’s because a bathroom fulfills a lot of goals. It increases enjoyment while you’re actually living in the home, and it also helps to be a great selling point, if you ever decide to put your home on the market.
Of course, with any remodeling project of any size, you’re going to have to set some goals and parameters, and that can be a difficult thing to consider, especially if you don’t have any background or experience with a renovation project. Should you do it yourself, or should you hire it out? Or can you do part of it and contract out other pieces that you’re not so sure of? And how do you assemble the resources (money, yes) that you need to gather? This graphic helps to explain it.

There are many important things to consider when choosing an Asheville builder to finish your basement. There’s much more to a basement remodel than framing, drywall, and paint. An experienced contractor can help you with a plan that takes into consideration the foundation, water issues, code violations, ceiling height, and insulation.
If you’re finishing your basement in Asheville, NC think about what features you want. Do you want a wine cellar or theater? Will you need a bedroom for guests? Be sure to choose a builder that has experience finishing basements and solid recommendations. Interview more than one Asheville builder and ask if you can see examples of their past construction projects. You will be investing a lot of money so it’s worth doing your homework up front to ensure you’re happy with the results of finishing your basement.

Judd Builders, an Asheville NC custom home builder, was recently mentioned in a HuffPost article “Bad Real Estate Lessons You’ve Learned From Watching HGTV.” Our Director of Marketing, Lauren McKinney, was interviewed for the article and spoke about her experience working with clients wanting to remodel existing homes and their lack of knowledge about the cost to remodel due in part to budgets on HGTV shows that aren’t realistic in the Asheville market. She said “the biggest misconception I see as a result of people watching HGTV shows is that it skews their idea of what things should cost. Whether it’s an existing home that needs to be remodeled or they’re buying a lot to build a new home, they think they can pay prices similar to Waco, Texas, where ‘Fixer Upper’ is filmed and where the market is completely different and building and labor costs are much lower.”
