Keep up with your home renovations! Home renovations are rising in popularity, and homeowners are going for a more basic design with and low maintenance feel. This year’s trends include updating kitchen cabinets, quartz counter tops, pre-finished wood flooring, earthy color tones, and deep single bowl sinks.

Home renovations, house plans, and other remodeling efforts all start with an accurate set of the current as built conditions of the property.
