Five Ways to Pay For Your Home Remodeling Project

Now that you’ve figured out how much your project is going to cost, the next question is, “How do I pay for it?” Here are five different methods our clients who don’t have cash get the money to pay for their projects:

Custom-built cabinets with butcher block counter tops, custom-built medicine cabinets, and ceiling and wall chandeliers!

I have a case of bathtub envy. This is a six-foot Kohler Archer soaking tub that is great to stretch out in. Look how the chandelier casts the light around the tub and ceiling. Dark ceilings are a fun accent to work with, and I’m seeing more and more of them. We had the window blacked out for photography purposes, but it’s clear glass looking over the spacious and tree-filled back yard. Read more
