Renovating A House: Where To Start

renovating a home

Interested in renovating a house? Whether you’re looking to build your dream home or you’re looking to profit, it’s valuable to do your research first. As a large-scale project, a house renovation involves a lot of work and until you’ve been through the process, it can be difficult to know where to start! Find out more about the process of renovating a house with our introductory guide.

Finding the right property

To get started with your house renovation, you need to find a house to renovate! This could be a property that you own, a property you’ve seen at auction or a property on the market with a lot of potential. It’s important that your plans are realistic and achievable, with the right budget, and the right people to carry out the job.

Getting started with a house renovation

A successful house renovation depends on the company carrying out the work. Meeting with a bespoke building company to discuss your plans can help you firm up your ideas, and help you establish what’s possible. You’ll need to consider different aspects of your renovation to make sure you can get planning permission where necessary. An architect will be able to draw the plans that will guide your home renovation.

With a long road ahead, it’s vital you choose a firm you can trust to do the work, and who will be reliable throughout the project.

Once you’re happy with the agreed plans for your home renovation, you’ll be ready to get started.

House renovation order of works

Before the renovation work commences, you’ll need an ‘order of works’. This is a detailed schedule of all the work that is necessary to complete the project. It will list all of the jobs that need doing in the order required, so that you can get your suppliers in place and be fully aware of each stage of the renovation.

When renovating a house, it helps to choose a specialist housebuilder with experience in home renovations. Managing the project on your behalf, it will make things easier to manage, ensuring you’re not doing all of the chasing and negotiations with suppliers and service companies.

Once you’re happy with the order of works, you’ll be ready to begin the project and say hello to your dream home.
