CHECKLIST FOR FINDING AND HIRING A BUILDER OR REMODEL Doing your homework will help you have a more successful experience. Use this checklist to help you select a home builder or home remodeler to work on or build your home:

Why Hire a Licensed Building Trade Professional? 7 TIPS ON WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A LICENSED BUILDING TRADE PROFESSIONAL:

■ These companies are abiding by the MN State Statute rules to be registered with the MN Department of Labor & Industry: residential contractors ($15,000+ gross per year), electricians, plumbers and power limited technicians (lawn sprinkler technician, garage door technicians, low voltage technicians, data communication technicians). Each company must have at least one qualifying person who holds licensure for their industry type required by Minnesota statute. Each company pays a license fee every two years (MN Statute Section 326B). ■ Each qualifying person must show proof of specified levels of liability insurance (determined by the MN statute) at each renewal period (MN Statute Section 326B.46). ■ Each qualifying person must show proof of workers compensation for the company employees (MN Statute Section 176.182). ■ Each qualifying person must take proper continuing education in a specified time period to renew their license by renewal date (MN Statute Section 326B). This is to ensure that proper codes are followed for specified trade. Each building trade profession has specific code PAGE 8 | 2018 BUILDERS’ MAGAZINE

requirements that cover safety and well-being of the public. ■ Each licensed company pays by bond or recover fund fee that covers resolution issues between consumers and building trade professional. Consumers that hire an unlicensed contractor do not have access to the contractor recovery fund. ■ In accordance to the MN Statute (Section 327A) residential licensed contractors must provide a home warranty which provides a 1, 2 and 10 year warranty. ■ Licensed building trade professionals have their work inspected in code adopted areas and are issued certificates of occupancy. In code and non-code adopted areas non-licensed building trade contractors cannot pull land use permits or building permits. Municipalities ask for proof of active building trade professional licensure on land use permits and building permits.

 Contact your local home builders’ association for the names of member builders and remodelers: www.LakeRegionBuilders.com. You can also ask family, friends or coworkers for recommendations.  Make sure the builder or home remodeler has a permanent business location and a good reputation with local banks and suppliers.  Find out how long they have been in the building business. It usually takes three to five years to establish a financially sound business. You want to make sure they will be around after the construction is complete to service any warranties.  Check out the company’s rating and if there have been any complaints filed with your local Better Business Bureau: www.bbb.org.  Make sure the builder/remodeler has sufficient workers compensation and general liability insurance. If not, you may be liable for any construction-related accidents on your premises.  Ask the builder/remodeler to provide you with names of previous customers. If they won’t, beware. If they do, ask the customers if they would hire the builder/remodeler again.  Ask if you can see the builder/remodelers work, both completed and in progress. Check for quality of workmanship and materials.  Do you feel you can easily communicate with the builder/remodeler? Remember you will be in close contact with them throughout the construction process and afterward as you live in your new home.  Make sure the builder/remodeler provides you with a complete and clearly written contract. The contract will benefit both of you. If you are having a new home built, get and review a copy of the home warranty and homeowner manual as well.  Be cautious of unusually low-priced bids. If the builder/remodeler is unable to pay for the materials and labor as the project proceeds, this may indicate a potential problem. Keep in mind that less expensive does not necessarily mean better!

hen you think of making home improvements, the interior and exterior of your home may get the most focus. But there is also a lot of potentially great living space just outside your door.

Outdoor Living and Dining Rooms, Kitchens It’s becoming more common to see cushioned chairs, benches and tables arranged on a separated patio or adjoining the home, often under an awning or roof but still very much in the open air of your backyard. Start off on the right foot with a properly installed and graded patio of stone or concrete and you can enjoy meals or just have a comfortable place to relax with friends and family. Some go further and create an outdoor kitchen complete with a grill, sink, refrigerator, and countertop and storage space, often built right into a patio’s stonework. Be sure to buy furniture, rugs and accessories that have been designed for outdoor or outdoor/indoor use.

Fire Pits and Fireplaces Another more recent trend is having a skilled professional install a freestanding brick or stone fireplace near a seating or entertaining area in your backyard. It can create a sense of privacy while still leaving you out in nature, as well as provide a welcome glow and warmth into the fall months. Likewise, fire pits can be permanently installed to provide a safe, appealing glow to your outdoor gathering.

Patios and Walkways Is your backyard patio a square or rectangular slab of concrete? Think outside the box, as the saying goes, and expand or replace that drab slab with a rounded or flowing contoured patio. There are many options to choose from, and even the least expensive materials like concrete have come a long way with varied textures, visual appeal and durability. Add a meandering walkway through a garden space and beyond to draw your backyard, landscaping and patio area together into an inviting, cohesive living space.

to place a plant, but don’t toss them away just yet. Stones can add color and texture to a garden, and larger rocks can create their own unique focal point. Add new dimension to your backyard with stones large or small. Think of it this way — you’ll never have to water them!

Raising the Standard

Pergolas and Outdoor Lighting Break up, instead of block out, the daylight sun with wooden structures like pergolas to bring some welcome shade without creating a barrier between you and the outdoors you are enjoying. At night, these same structures can feature lighting elements designed specifically for outdoor use to add a subtle but helpful glow in the evening. Lighting can also be put to great use along your patio and walkways, providing a lit space for safety and appeal without taking away from the night-time ambience. Installing elements like these into your home’s outdoor space is a great way to expand the enjoyment of your home. But don’t be shy to contact Lake Region Builders Association – LakeRegionBuilders.com to find contractors with the necessary expertise to help you with your project. When it comes to permanent and more costly fixtures such as fireplaces, patios and walkways, and even outdoor kitchens, they will work better, be safer and last longer when properly installed.

Rich Barnwood Look, No Barnwood Hassle.

Where to Begin The first step is to develop an idea of what you want to do with your home remodel. Write a prioritized list of your needs and wants. There are many sources to find design ideas for your home remodeling project. Look at magazines and websites and collect pictures of homes or remodeling projects you like. The more clearly you can envision the project and describe it on paper, the better prepared you’ll be in making your decision. Think about traffic patterns, furniture size and placement, colors, lighting and how you expect to use the remodeled space. If your decision to remodel involves creating better access for someone with limited mobility, you may want to consider contacting a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist. ► CONTINUED ON PAGE 16

You may want to improve home efficiency and hire a professional remodeler for green home remodeling. These projects include replacing windows and doors, upgrading heating and cooling systems, adding insulation, and other remodeling to make the home more energy-efficient, easier to maintain, and comfortable. Figure out how much money you have to spend on the home remodeling job, furnishings, landscaping or any other cost you might incur. Can you do it yourself? Once you have created your list of priorities, you’ll need to decide how to accomplish that vision. For the handyman or woman, a do-it-yourself project can be both rewarding and cost-effective. However, more than 30% of all jobs home remodelers perform come from failed DIY projects. Hiring a professional remodeler is the best way to ensure your project’s success. These remodelers are dedicated to maintaining the highest integrity and standards in the industry.

How to Solve a Shortage of Storage

F

001695091r1

inding storage solutions for things like blankets, books, seasonal clothes and countless other items that often take over your living areas can seem challenging. But there are many practical and attractive ways to incorporate storage all throughout your home.

Built-in Shelves Free-standing bookshelves serve a function, but built-in shelves can be “wow factors” that significantly enhance the character of a room. Either bordering a fireplace or large window, built-in shelves are a great investment with a dual purpose of adding storage and providing an area to display photos and décor. A cabinet maker or other woodworking professional can build one to fit your home’s unique dimensions. Or a local remodeler can help you with design and installation.

Under-Bed Compartments A surprising number of people underutilize one of the best storage locations: beneath the bed. Especially for smaller bedrooms, under-bed storage can free up valuable floor space and make way for other furniture like a chaise or a full-length mirror. Large plastic bins are usually an economical alternative, but they can be unsightly if they peek out from beneath your bed. Consider fabric-lined baskets, or industrial-style metal or wood boxes that roll on small castors. When buying new furnishings, look for beds with built-in storage drawers or cubbies.

Wall-Mounted Storage Your walls are meant for more than just hanging pictures, paintings and mirrors. They can also function as places to hold day-to-day items like umbrellas, bags and coats near an entryway. Mounting shelves, drawers or mirrors with hooks can be functional and fun. Or get creative with unique items found at antique shops or yard sales that could serve as hanging devices, even if that is not their primary purpose. Just make sure you are securely and properly affixing items to your wall to avoid damage. Always use the studs in your wall or the appropriate hanging hardware. If you are unsure, have a handyman or contractor help you, especially for larger items that could cause harm to a person or damage to your home if mounted improperly. Garage and Large Items When there is extra space in a garage, shed, basement, large closet or even an underused room in your home, remember there are numerous shelving options to help you optimize the vertical spaces. A shelf bisecting an otherwise open closet can give you twice the space. And shelves with totes, baskets or doors are functional and can add charm to the room.

emodeling projects can make your home a noticeably better place to live — and if you decide to sell, certain projects will pay you back a good bit of what you put into them. So which projects are the best investments, in terms of their return when you sell? According to Remodeling magazine’s 2017 Cost vs. Value Report, curb-appeal projects will give you some of the best returns. For example, replacing the front door with a new steel door returns 91% of the cost, or manufactured stone veneer in place of vinyl siding on the bottom third of the street-facing facade, 89%. The report looks at 29 remodeling projects and compares out-of-pocket costs against how much real estate professionals predict the improvements will add to the potential selling price of a house sold within a year of finishing the project. The projects in the report pay back an average of 64.3 cents on the dollar in resale value — the bulk of the cost, but not enough to call them outright money-makers that first year. Only one project recoups its entire cost and then some: having a professional seal and add loosefill insulation to the attic, with a return of 108%. Ultimately, the bottom line for any remodeling project is: how it will enhance your home’s value, not just in immediate resale price but also in turning your home into a more comfortable, livable space. And that can help you avoid dedicating even more time and money to buying a new house and moving. Add a family room and you’ll recoup the lion’s share of what you put in — 78% within a year, according to the report. The same goes for a kitchen remodel, which came in at 70% payback, or finishing a basement, 81%. But for a young family, the return-on-investment may not be the motivating factor. Building on a family room opens up for more social space as the family grows, making the home more comfortable and workable for the family over time, delaying or preventing a costly move. Projects that help baby boomers stay in their homes continue to be popular with home owners across the country. The report includes a bathroom update to make it safer and easier to navigate. It widens the doorway so it would be accessible by wheelchair, installs a zero-threshold shower with fold-down seat, puts in a comfort-height toilet, reinforces walls to support grab bars, and installs a sink with space for a person to sit at it. If the home is then sold within a year, the real estate pros predict an average payback of 68%. If the homeowners stay, the return can be even greater. Saving the cost of a move and the price of a properly equipped replacement house only adds to the value of the project. And to remain in a familiar home and neighborhood, that payback in quality of life can be immeasurable.

Kitchen Trends for 2018

Y

our kitchen is most likely the most important room in your house: where the kids do their homework, where your friends come for coffee, where you pay your bills and — for most of us — where we cook our meals. It’s also the first thing that home shoppers look at, and that’s why the experts on the National Association of Home Builders’ Design Committee pay close attention to color, pattern, lighting and appliance trends. Here’s what these experts are seeing as they look to the kitchen of 2018:

Open floor plans The kitchen as a gathering place is here to stay, say these designers. And as islands get bigger, some are swapping the kitchen table and “command center” desk for a comfy armchair or two where you can sit and scroll through your tablet or phone while you enjoy a cup of tea. Storage remains very important, and the clean lines of today’s kitchen design — fewer knickknacks and less clutter on the countertops — mean more home owners are asking for bigger mud rooms with ample shelves for everything from canned goods to vases.

Technology The “smart home” is becoming more evident in today’s kitchen. Just as thermostats and security devices can be controlled via a smart phone, so too can ovens, refrigerators and other appliances. This trend, designers say, is only growing. And that oven? It’s still likely to be stainless steel, but in a black stainless steel, which is now among the most popular colors of kitchen appliances. Other popular shades include deep jewel colors, especially navy blue, in high-end ovens. ► CONTINUED ON PAGE 30

Counters and Cabinets Granite countertops remain a classic choice for the traditionalist, but there are plenty of new options to choose from. Quartz countertops have improved remarkably since they were first introduced — coming in larger slabs so having a seam between countertop pieces is less likely. When it comes to cabinets, top designers are saying that intricate designs and fancy knobs are very “last century.” Think flat panels and clean lines, with a focus on maximizing storage. And as more families use their kitchen as a hub for entertaining, the “beverage center” is coming into its own this year. Having a cabinet and countertop section with a sink, icemaker and mini-fridge lets your guests pour their own drinks or hungry children get their own snacks without congesting the other areas of the kitchen.

Separate Your Space Although you are physically working in the house, it is important to set up your home office so that the lines between your home life and your work life do not get blurred. By creating a barrier, you will be less tempted to take a television break in the middle of your work day or work on spreadsheets when you are supposed to be “home from the office.”

ome offices are becoming less of a luxury and more of a necessity with more people telecommuting or running their own businesses from their homes. It is estimated that one in five Americans work from home. And with the fluctuating cost of gas and increased traffic causing longer commutes, that number is likely to grow even more every year. Work space is no longer relegated just to the kitchen table or a corner of the guest bedroom; it has been promoted to a room of its own in the home. If you are looking to create a home office, or revamp an existing one, keep the following points in mind:

Design Your Office to Match Your Work Style When choosing the furniture and layout of your office, make sure if fits the way you choose to work. For example, if you believe in “a place for everything and everything in its place,” be sure to allot enough space for adequate storage and file cabinets. If you work on several different projects, set up separate, smaller work stations dedicated to each task.


Show Off Your Style There is no such thing as “one design fits all.” While one person may prefer the look of dark woods and rich colors, someone else may favor a more whimsical look with bright colors and clean lines. This is your chance to bring in designs and items that best reflect your personality and interests. Don’t be restricted by what you think a home office should look like. Make it your own since you will be the one spending the most time there. Make It Comfortable When choosing the furniture and amenities for your office, make sure that you are physically comfortable and that your work space is conducive to productivity. ■ Y  our chair should be adjustable with adequate seat cushioning. ■ A  dd a couch or armchair to allow for additional seating for guests or to provide a place to read away from your desk. ■ I nstall recessed lighting which is less harsh on your eyes. ■ Buy smaller desktop lights focused on task areas that are used for reading and writing to reduce eye strain.

Turn Your Yard into an Edible Landscape

E

ating healthy, shopping at farmers’ markets and planting gardens are more popular than ever. Many families want to grow their own food, but are challenged by a lack of space for a fullsized garden in their yard. Think about edible landscaping: You can have an attractive-looking yard or patio that also provides fruits and vegetables your family can eat. It can combine fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers and ornamental plants into aesthetically pleasing designs. These designs can incorporate any garden style and can include just a few, or be completely comprised of edible plants.

Some reasons to include edible plants in your home’s landscaping include: ■ Pick and eat fresh, fully-ripe fruits and vegetables ■ Control the amount of pesticides and herbicides used on your food ■ Save money by buying fewer fruits and vegetables at the grocery store ■ Grow unique foods that may not be available in the store ■ Save the hassle of mowing and maintaining your lawn Many edible species are not only functional from a food-on-your-table perspective, but they are also attractive. For example, some flowers, such as begonias, day lilies, carnations, pansies, peonies and roses can be eaten. They also make a colorful addition to salads or as a garnish on plates. Red and yellow tomato and pepper plants add a splash of color to ornamental beds.

More ideas for edible landscapes include: ■ Put pots of herbs on the patio ■ Include cherry tomatoes in a window box or hanging basket ■ Build a grape arbor ■ Grow nasturtium, violas, borage, or calendula and include flowers in salads ■ Grow Red-jewel cabbage ■ Plant colorful pepper varieties alongside flowers ■ Tuck lettuce, radishes, or other short-lived greens into a flower bed ■ Replace a barberry hedge with gooseberries ■ Put basil together with coleus in a planter ■ Try yellow or “rainbow” chard ■ Grow chives around the mailbox ■ Train raspberries up your fence Before you begin turning your yard into a garden, make sure to do your research and know how much sunlight and water each plant requires, what type of soil will best support that species, and how much maintenance you will have to do to get the fruits and vegetables you desire. When you are done, don’t be afraid to show your edible landscape off to your friends and family. Post pictures of it on Facebook and Instagram, and send pictures into Pinterest. Who knows how many other people will pin them on their gardening boards?

Additionally, raspberry or blackberry bushes make a great border around your yard, and fruit trees provide shade. Just make sure you consider where you are placing them, as cleaning rotten fruit or berries that have dropped onto your patio can be a frustrating and messy chore.
