007 – Hiring the right professional

In this episode, KT and Melissa discuss:

  • Keeping a budget in mind
  • Quick and Cheap? Not so much
  • Plan, plan, plan
  • Bang for your bucks

Key Takeaways:

  • Coming up with a budget can be difficult, so think about bringing in a professional or use a tool like this Free Cost vs. Value Report
  • The most important piece of a renovation job is a realistic timeline/plan
  • Paint is a great bang for your buck and can totally change the feel of the room
  • Until you know what you’re actually going to build, it’s going to be hard to get a solid estimate


“Studies show that more than a third of what we spend, is spent on the home.” – KT Thomas
