What Houzz contributors are saying:
A budget will help with effective decision making If you make a complete budget, with cost estimates of everything you want in your project, you can see the extent of what the project will cost and make better decisions in advance. If your forecast costs are too high, then you can identify items to do at a later date or remove altogether in order to lower the project costs. As you work on your project, every decision (and there are a lot of them) will come back to the budget and the boundaries it provides. While you shop for your property, you have a price point and therefore less options to choose from. And in those times where you want a design feature and the budget will not allow for it, you get creative, look into alternatives and potentially discover and learn something new that is a better option.
The original fireplace from the old living room adds a warm, homey touch to the otherwise cool space. Tuck pointing was used to restore the bricks, giving the feature a refined finish. The same technique was also used on the verandah at the front of the house, creating a cohesive feel from inside to out.
