Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. Shares Great Ways to Gain Space in Your Home

On Saturday morning, June 25, Case Design/Remodeling, Inc. held one of several workshop/seminars it’s having this summer addressing not only the basics, but also some of the finer aspects of home remodeling and expansion. 

This particular workshop, led by Case Design/Remodeling Executive VP Bill Millholland, focused on gaining space in your existing home, whether through converting an attic or screened-in porch into living space, or by actually building a new addition. Case highlights the attic and porch conversions as the least expensive options, but barring water issues or ceiling height problems, finishing a basement can be a cost-effective transformation as well, maximizing the existing space in your home.

Also answering questions and providing his share of on-site knowledge was David Vogt, senior project designer and one of several employees Case has on hand with a degree in Architecture. Of his many tips, he stressed the importance of having someone check out your property ahead of time and try to provide you with relevant zoning and code information before you start envisioning the project. He acknowledged Case’s firm belief in making sure projects are up to code and zoning regulations, an especially tricky business in the District of Columbia. 

Millholland explained that if you need your summer project to be done as quickly as possible, July and August are great months to explore, as most people are on summer vacations. Less people filing for zoning permits and inspections hopefully means less down time as well. Though, in the DC area, weather will generally not affect builds, so the winter months are also an option.

Millholland also said “to speed up the start of your project and keep costs down, start by thinking about what your end goal is. Think about what you want to achieve, and then decide what details are ‘got to haves’ versus ‘like to haves.’”

Case will be holding a Kitchen and Bath Seminar on August 6, where designers will offer their advice and answer questions for anyone who wants to stop by. Other workshops or seminars will be added at a later date. For more information or to RSVP for an upcoming seminar, please visit www.casedesign.com/seminar.
