Thinking of Remodeling?
Think JOY in Addition to Cost / Value
A few before/after RDM remodel pictures: Olsen Basement, Sexton Stair/Living Room.
Remodeling magazine has released their 2010-2011 analysis of estimated costs recouped for a variety of home projects - everything from a family room addition to a new master suite. It's an interesting look at both mid-range and upscale projects, and compares our region (West North Central) to the national average. (You can take a look here.)
What the report does not quantify is the JOY the finished project brings to the owner each and everyday.
