The number one common mistake, we found in our years of experience, is attempting several projects at one time. It would be a lie to claim that building is easy, that there won’t be times of stress, or there will be no holdups due to weather or other practicalities. We suggest beginning with one project at a time, which means you will need to consider which item do you want completed first? Is it that a: swimming pool, a workspace or an outdoor eating area? What suits your lifestyle and which item will you benefit from the most?
On the other hand, if you are remodelling to sell your home, what adds value and make the property appealing to buyers?
Budget and Investment Pieces
Budgeting is always going to be a fundamental when it comes to new projects, it’s a great way to see the expenditures and get an estimation of your new feature. However the way some budget can be questionable, especially when it comes to saving money on materials and labour. This is a common, expensive and potentially a dangerous action. Designing an outdoor living space is an investment, which should considered as such in all aspects of design. Better materials can be more expensive, but there’s a reason for that, such as: wear and tear, safety standards and long term value.
Avoiding the DIY hole
Quite simply put, don’t dig yourself into a hole (literally and figuratively), DIY is all when it and good. Pride can be your worst enemy during any part of life, it can become extremely costly to fix enthusiastic/amateur issues, if you can’t don’t have the skills to do some DON’T attempt it. Seeking advice from professionals, perhaps even a full service, is the best way to ensure your project is completed successfully. Remember no man is an island.
The advice we have given may seem simple but, in our many years experience, are very common mistakes. Overall when planning and designing an outdoor living space you will need is: time, money and a bit of patience. Our article isn’t going to help you build an Olympic size swimming pool over night; however it will get you there eventually, if you have the space of course. Before purchasing your first item, or speak to labourers, consider all the above factors in great detail. It will save you time and budget.
