This is the best time of year to get started on planning and designing your home remodel or addition. This provides time to determine what you want, work out the details, find the right designer or architect to draw plans, receive bids from contractors and have permits in place to begin work in the spring and summer when it’s best to complete construction projects.
This class has been designed to provide you with the tools to explore your ideas and the knowledge necessary to complete a successful home project.
You will learn how to:
*Read a set of plans as drawn by an architect or engineer.
*Plan and draw your design ideas to scale to ensure furniture .
*Understand building code requirements.
*Obtain building permits.
*Select the right architect, designer, engineer and/or contractor for your project.
Helpful handouts on what has been covered including information on codes specific to your municipality will be provided along with a list of available rebates.
These are three-hour sessions and the next class will be held at the Multnomah Community Center on August 24th from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
