Course Level: 100 | Course Length: 1.5 hours
Date, Time and Location
Not currently scheduled.
An often overlooked facet of true sustainability in residential remodeling is attractive home design which stands the test of time. A remodeled home that conveys a sense of beauty and harmony, both inside and out, will be less likely to be torn down and replaced or worse: have to be remodeled again! This class will explore key design concepts to help participants learn how to create a more functional, beautiful and visually appealing remodel. Using real-life case studies of actual design challenges, (including some unfortunate examples) participants will learn how core design considerations were made creating a more successful, and sustainable, design solution.
See Michael's blog post featured in All Things Real Estate Newspaper, that explains how understanding these fundamental, core concepts is the key to good residential remodeling design.
