That’s why we have 7 years of school, 4 years of internships, 9 exams and a damn paper to write (or at least that was how it worked when I got licensed)!
If you tell your architect that you want to move the Laundry Room to the Basement, because in your mind that is what has to happen in order for you to fit everything you want in your new Kitchen, but you don’t actually want or need to move it….
Do you know what your architect hears?
You want a:
- · Laundry Room remodel
- · Kitchen remodel
- · Added work in the Basement to get the new Laundry Room to fit
Had you just given him or her your list of priorities, which was essentially making sure you could fit both a refrigerator and separate freezer in the new Kitchen (Laundry Room never actually being part of your priorities at all), he or she may have found a way to use the back half of an adjacent closet, along with rearranging things in the Kitchen as planned, to make room for your separate freezer… leaving both the Laundry Room and the Basement as is. Now, all of that money you saved by not moving a Laundry Room can be used to buy that beautiful dresser you had your eye on, making up for the lost closet space and still have enough left over for a weekend getaway during construction. Make sense? Put your priorities together in order of importance, and don’t add things just because you think that is the only way to make something work. Let US figure out how to cost effectively make your priorities work. Don’t worry; we will make suggestions if we see something you must consider.
