The first of two episodes focused on budgeting for renovation, we visit with John and Sherry Petersik, the creators of the wildly successful Young House Love blog and brand. Hear them talk about some of their favorite “bang for your buck” projects, as well as some things they’ve learned they’d rather hire out than do themselves.
They’ll also share insights on the other side of a budget, which is timing, and knowing when the right time is to take on a project and how a phased approach may not only help you satisfy your desires for change, but set your space up for greatness when you’re ready for a full renovation.
