We can't guarantee your success with your own particular home improvement project but we can tell you what worked well for us.

It is however important to always check the local building codes in your area and your country to make sure that your proposed building project is acceptable to your type of home, soil conditions etc. and fits well into the neighborhood.

Any home improvement project carried out without the proper permissions is just a waste of your time and money - if it doesn't come up to code it hasn't a chance of adding value to your home.
