How to Organize Your Construction Project


Renovating or remodeling your dream home is an exciting project.  You will be faced with making many decisions about cabinet styles and colors, faucets, flooring, and paint colors.  Records must be kept for contracts, permits, surveys, budget, and other "business" issues.  Keeping organized will save you time and keep you and everyone else in the house from going crazy!

I would have been lost without my project folders.

Here is my "high tech" recordkeeping system.  Laugh if you will but my little traveling file cabinet went with me everywhere.  Make a trip to your local office supply store.  Everything you need will cost just a few dollars.

It's not fancy but boy oh boy, it does the job!

I used this system when we built our custom contemporary house, the farmhouse addition, the farmhouse renovation and the barn restoration. Everything at your fingertips!  As the French say, "Whala"!!!
