What Houzz contributors are saying:

9. Don't do everything now. Stage or downscale the project. Before budget becomes a driving factor, we often get carried away and want to change everything. If there are parts of the project you could do another time without added cost, wait on those. Staging different parts of the project will allow you to save up more money beforehand.10. Do some of the work yourself. If you want to bring up this option with your contractor, be careful to stay out of his way while doing your own work. Maybe you can install the floating cork floor after the room is built but before the finish carpenters and painters come in — you could even do it on a weekend so there's no disruption to the contractor's schedule. Not everyone will be open to this type of arrangement, but it doesn't hurt to ask.More: Review a home pro you've worked withRead more in this series
