Remodel are not the only KC homeowner who feels this way.


Embarking on a Kansas City home renovation is thrilling but daunting.

You’re not alone!

The NUMBER ONE RULE: planning a remodel is as crucial as the remodel itself. Repeat 3x. Planning can take just as long as construction. (Really!)

Red Flags:

🚩Avoid contracts without a development plan.

🚩Avoid contractors offering vague allowances.
