Residential Remodel Consulting
We are undertaking full renovation (with addition) of our home and in my typical way, we are working backward. We have permitted plans and I think we have identified a builder.
…and now I have decided that we should actually try to make out home efficient and healthier to live in.
While waiting for the permits I have proceeded to log more hours here and on Youtube than I care to admit. I am familiar with many of the techniques but I don’t have a background in construction or engineering, nor do I have to time to try to sort out more of this on my own.
I am looking for someone who could go over our plans and help identify products and assemblies that would fit with our build, budget and “normal-performance” builder. Also, would like to be able to provide some updated construction drawings for areas that might be trickier for the team. My current architect is happy to do those under the guidance of a consultant or we can provide files to work from if the consultant can do that kind of drafting as well. The main focus is the usual around here, air barrier/quality, insulation and ventilation.
The location is Southern California but I don’t care where you are. Sorry for the long post, hopefully, this is not out of place here.
