This book equips owners with the information and strategies needed to turn their vision into a home or renovation
project that can be executed on time and within budget. Chapters give detailed coverage of critical topics: design
options, selecting and supervising the architect and contractor, cost estimates, budgets, plan specifications,
contracts, dealing with town officials and keeping track of everything along the way. For each stage of the project
there is detailed information on common pitfalls and how to avoid them, as well as insiders' tips which reveal what most
contractors can't tell you. This book was previously published by Warner Books (2004) and titled What the "Experts" May
Not Tell You About Building or Renovating Your Home.
