Here are some things that you need to keep in mind before you start working on the project:

  • Write down the desired features and elements such as additional storage or change in furniture.

  • Use another color to mark the DIY options with small budget.
  • The left-out items such as changing electrical and plumbing systems, major renovations and remodeling and installing high-tech intricate appliances may need professional help and more money, so you can prioritize them and implement them at your ease.
  • Floor plans can be made by hand or using software. If the blueprint of the house is available, you can have exact structural, electrical and plumbing layouts and dimensions. Take into account measurements of walls, doors, windows, fireplace and other fixed.
