After saving and dreaming, you have finally decided the time is right to begin that construction project. You may be building a new home, adding on to your existing home or constructing a separate building, such as a garage or office. Any kind of construction is disruptive, and delays can end up costing you both money and peace of mind.
To minimize the problem of expensive, prolonged delays, meticulous planning and communicating well with your contractor are irreplaceable. While a detailed plan may not eliminate every delay or interruption, you may be able to reduce the level of stress when something stalls the forward progress.
