Got the remodeling bug?

Watch for common side effects of the affliction

Whether you want to update your longtime home or reconfigure your newly purchased residence, remodeling is a seductive thought. After all, who doesn’t love to imagine that their dream home is just a contractor away?

But remodeling comes with its own set of challenges. From budget woes to daily dust and disorder, a home project can seem like a virus – something you just endure until it’s over. What are the symptoms of the ailment? Houzz article recently listed a few:

Scope Creep”:  It’s a common occurrence: A homeowner starts with plans to remodel one room, perhaps the kitchen, but then thinks, “‘But if we’re painting the kitchen, won’t the living room look dingy if it still has the old paint job? And won’t the built-ins in the dining room look dated with all the new kitchen cabinets?’” That’s Scope Creep, a sure way to induce severe Busting the Budgetitis.

“Obsessive design disorder”:
If you let it, remodeling can infiltrate the furthest reaches of your brain, making you obsess about light fixtures and bathroom tile 24/7. “Extreme cases have resulted in homeowners quitting their day jobs to enter the remodeling business or become an interior designer,” notes Houzz.

“The Why Did We Stay Here Blues”: You’re dealing with workers, debris and lack of access to rooms you need. No wonder you have the blues. The symptoms are easy to spot, says Houzz, including “checking out local apartment complexes online [and] feeling a sense of dread at the thought of returning home after work….”

“Remodeling-Induced Gastrointestinal Distress”: Doing a kitchen remodel? That means you’re probably gobbling down enough takeout to fill a fast food dumpster. “Homeowners suffering from this distress are constantly faced with difficult questions, such as ‘I don’t know, what do you want to eat?’ and ‘Aren’t you tired of McDonald’s yet?’” says Houzz.

First Custom Homebuilders Selected for Boulevard One at Lowry


The Lowry Redevelopment Authority has selected Alpert Signature Homes, GO Builders Inc., and Latsis Custom Homes to build custom homes on a small block in the Boulevard One neighborhood at Lowry. Each builder will have two lots on the block, located south of First Avenue and west of Magnolia Street. Homebuilders for an additional 20-lot custom home area west of Quebec Street on Archer Place will be selected in mid-2015.

All three companies have built stylish luxury homes at Lowry and throughout Denver over the years. Conceptual home designs offer a high level of sustainability and livability, with attention paid to aging in place, intergenerational living, and entertaining. Homes are expected to range from 2,300 to 3,800 square feet, with prices starting in the mid $700s. Builders will start the Lowry design review process this summer, with construction expected to begin in late fall. Interested home buyers should contact builders directly.
