Summary, etc.:
"This book equips owners with the information and strategies needed to turn their vision into a home or renovation project that can be executed on time and within budget. Chapters give detailed coverage of critical topics: design options, selecting and supervising an architect and contractor, cost estimates, budgets, plan specifications, contracts, dealing with town officials and keeping track of everything along the way. For each stage of the project there is detailed information on common pitfalls and how to avoid them, as well as insiders' tips which reveal what most contractors can't tell you. An initial version of this book was previously published by Warner Books (2004) and titled What the "Experts" May Not Tell You About Building or Renovating Your Home."-- provided by publisher.
