Setting priorities:

Remodeling your house during winter would be a challenging task for both your family and the crew involved. So, you need to prioritize the important aspects and plan accordingly. For example, remodeling the exteriors like roofs and walls may have to be started before the snow sets in, to make the job easier for the crew. Remodeling the interiors can take place later and can be given the next priority. But it is always better if you get a head start, beat the snow and finish the remodeling before your guests arrive. If you feel that remodeling the exteriors can lead to too much pressure during the winter, you can always put it off for the summer time and focus on the interiors, unless the exterior needs immediate attention.

Allotting the budget and time:

Once you get your priorities right, you need to allot the budget and time for the renovation to take place. Talk to your remodeling contractor, draw up a time frame and set a realistic budget for the various changes that you have planned for. Make sure you purchase all the materials in advance to ensure continuous flow of work, because going out to get supplies during the winter may be a difficult task.

Commencing the remodeling:

While remodeling the house, ensure that all the equipments and supply of materials are protected  are  kept warm and dry. They need to be kept accessible and properly secured. You can always discuss the specifics with your contractor before commencing the project. Temporary spaces can also be constructed to store the materials and keep them safe.
