Planning Ahead for 2014 Remodeling Projects

Posted 22 November 2013 by Team Hudson

Hudson Remodeling What are your goals for 2014? Do they include an addition or remodel to modernize your Whatcom County home? Maybe you’re expecting an addition to your family that will require another room or are starting a new business and will need a home office. If you’re planning a larger home remodel such as these, now is the time to start planning for it.

The process will begin with talking to a general contractor to start working on a construction plan. You will want to discuss your budget and what you envision for the finished product at this time.

Hudson-Remodeling-WhatcomBecause there are seemingly endless options when it comes to home construction design, it helps to look at magazines, websites or Houzz.com to begin forming your own ideas.

Not quite sure of what you want visually? Take a look at Hudson Remodeling’s Photo Gallery for inspiration.

Two things that often aren’t factored in when developing the plan for a residential remodeling project is the time required to order supplies and obtain building permits. These tasks are important reasons to start thinking ahead for home construction projects.

At Hudson Remodeling, we take a Design-Build approach to remodeling projects.  We walk clients through the entire process so they don’t have to research and hire multiple companies for each area of the job.

Remodels should be an exciting time for homeowners. Planning accordingly and leaving adequate time for the project will help ensure the process meets your expectations. Contact Charlie Hudson to talk about your home remodeling goals for 2014!

The benefits of using a design-build contractor

Posted 19 September 2013 by Team Hudson

When it’s time to move forward with a home remodeling project, there is a lot to consider. Homeowners typically have a pretty good vision for how the finished product should look so it’s important to make sure the right construction professionals are chosen early on in the process.

Hudson Remodeling is a design-build contractor in Whatcom County, which means that we can handle the entire project from start to finish so homeowners don’t have to hire multiple firms and juggle communication between them.

There are many benefits to hiring a design-build contractor for remodeling projects. The main benefit is that the design-build contractor is part of the process from beginning to end so they understand exactly what clients want and then use their craftsmanship skills to build it.

Another benefit to choosing a design-build firm is that the person who designs the project also is accountable for accurately measuring, ordering materials, overseeing product installation and staying on budget. This reduces the opportunity for errors which can lead to extra expense.

When working with a design-build firm, preliminary conversations will involve listening to the vision for the remodeling project and exploring the possibilities, and challenges, that may be faced along the way. This allows the builder and homeowner to design plans that meet their needs and work within their budget.

With all the details in place, the next step is construction. Because the design-build contractor and homeowner have worked closely during the design process, they know what to expect during the building phase.

By choosing Hudson Remodeling for your next residential renovation project, you can feel confident that we will understand your needs and be accountable for your project, from start to finish.

Increase your home’s value with outdoor construction projects

Posted 2 June 2013 by Team Hudson

With summer on its way, now is the perfect time to start planning outdoor construction projects that will increase your home’s value and curb appeal. Maybe you want to paint, replace old siding, or entertain more on a new deck. Whatever your project is this year, Hudson Remodeling is here to help.

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan for outdoor construction projects this summer:

  • Ready to replace the siding on your home?  Consider material selection carefully.  We recommend and frequently install HardiPlank, a fiber-cement siding that is durable (it can last 50+ years), looks like wood, and is insect-resistant.  HardiPlank holds paint incredibly well so future maintenance costs will be lower.

Inspiration:  pinterest.com

  • Time to repaint your home?  Remember to keep the color scheme of your doors, windows and even the roof of your house in mind.  You’ll want to choose colors that complement those features.  Keep in mind that darker paint colors can absorb heat, which may be beneficial during Whatcom County’s cold winter months, but not during warmer summer months.

Inspiration:  pinterest.com

  • Need to build a new deck or repair an existing one?  Make sure you allow enough space to accommodate tables, chairs, a BBQ and people comfortably.   Being in the lovely Pacific Northwest we can rarely guarantee sunshine – consider adding a cover to your deck so you can still enjoy the outdoors without getting wet.   You will also want to consider what decking material will best fit your needs.  Maintenance, durability, overall look, and sustainability are a few we consult with people on during the planning phase.

Inspiration:  pinterest.com

As a licensed general contractor in Whatcom County, Hudson Remodeling crews are ready to help with any deck or HardiPlank siding projects you’d like to undertake this year – our customers love our work and so will you!

Feature Remodeling Project: Subtle, Affordable Kitchen Remodel

Posted 11 July 2012 by Team Hudson

We love remodeling kitchens! It is very satisfying to take a space that is tired, worn out and inefficient and turn it into something fresh and user-friendly.

Kitchen remodeling pricing can vary greatly depending on the scope of work. Some customers want a ‘gut job’ where we pull out everything down to the studs and rebuild the space. Others opt for subtle, more affordable tweaks that improve living spaces (photo).

Earlier this year we had the pleasure of updating the kitchen of a local real estate agent, Sharon Allen. We helped improve flow in her living areas by removing a wall and then made subtle, affordable changes in the kitchen that really made a difference.

If you have been considering a large or small kitchen remodel please give me a call. I’d be happy to come take a look and chat with you about layout and design options.

Charlie
