Taking on a renovation project requires patience, organization, and teamwork. Things like receipt tracking, auditing possessions, and portable bathrooms can do wonders in the planning and execution of the project. We’ll explore how to prepare for a large renovation project that includes these small but significant tasks.
Take Account of Your Belongings
A large renovation project can occur in any area of your property. People will be in or out as the project proceeds, so keep an accurate record of your belongings for the designated area and your home. This list plays a role in various aspects, including insurance, storage, and cleaning.
Before the project’s start date, walk through the areas included in the project and make a list of permanent and valuable items so that you can account for these belongings easily when the project is complete.
Create a Digital Footprint
Creating a digital footprint is one of the best ways to keep tabs on everything you buy, invest in, or do. You need to keep all your receipts, whether you purchased something locally or made an exchange with the contractor team.
The receipts and agreements can add up, and something may go missing. A critical home renovation tip is converting all your paper trails to a digital footprint to organize finances and exchanges in a simplified manner. You can easily track dates and figures through excel sheets, PDFs, or documents. This digital footprint can also be your support while tracking the budget.
Respect Your Own Privacy Needs
It’s not always feasible to stay with a friend or family member while half your house is in the rubble. In the same regard, paying for a hotel can become draining. You can maintain a sense of personal space and privacy by investing in an outdoor restroom trailer that includes a toilet and shower.
You can use this unit yourself if the bathroom is the project. You can also request the contractor team to use this unit to avoid meandering inside your home. The choice is yours. These external provisions are usually more cost-effective than a hotel after you factor in peace of mind, privacy, and production.
Consider a Security Plan
Your property may already have security, but you should always consider updating the security provisions and enhancing the system’s features when opening your doors to strangers. Chances are you don’t update the system often. Taking on a large renovation project is the perfect time to update the system and prepare your home accordingly.
Consider updating to firmware and activating a motion sensor for the existing cameras. This can give you eyes on your home in real time so you can remain aware if you leave the property. Also, consider installing security for the areas of interest to keep better tabs on your belongings and the completed work.
