Budget breakers include choosing expensive materials or changing project scope but also unexpected complications during construction ndash; complications which can easily be avoided. A home inspection, though usually thought of as only a step when buying a home, can come in handy. A home inspection by a professional can reveal qualities of your home that you yourself may not even know, including what kind of work and changes can be done. Architect and structural engineers can go a little further by recommending which walls can and canrsquo;t be moved and even help you draw up detailed plans and guidelines for a general contractor to follow. As nearly two in three homeowners plan on doing at least some of the work themselves, be realistic with your own capabilities; even if you have experience in renovations yourself, it never hurts to consult with a professional.

Ready to finally begin that project? Plan ahead and donrsquo;t go it alone. Herersquo;s how to get the job done right and keep it within budget while protecting your biggest investment no matter the scale, detailed in this infographic below.
