Having the chance to design your own home is a real privilege.  I'm remodelling my own home at the moment and I've decided to share the journey of my remodelling project with you.

So what's in it for you - even though it's not your project?

  • You'll get a sense of what goes on during a remodelling project, both the design and the build.
  • You'll find out all the tips I've learned on the way!

I think that remodelling a home can pose more design challenges that designing a home from scratch.  We shall see...

I've had some emails on spelling.  I'm British so I spell it with a double 'l' 'remodelling' :)  But I thought Remodelog just looked better than remodellog.
