What Houzz contributors are saying:
8. Understand the importance of a building contract. A building contract is simply an agreement between a builder, who agrees to undertake a specific set of works, and a client, who agrees to pay a set amount of money. There are many forms of contract, but the one that I most regularly use for residential projects has the drawings and schedules attached to the contract, so it’s clear what’s included and what’s not. The payment terms and so on are agreed upon upfront.The important thing the contract does is set out the “what ifs” —such as, what if the work is changed along the way? What if it takes longer than agreed? Ideally and, I’m glad to say, usually, once signed and filed, the contract isn’t needed again because everything has gone smoothly. But that’s often because everyone knows it’s there in the background.
Tile can make a dramatic wall treatment that provides interesting and unexpected texture anywhere. Tip: Balance out the hard surface with extra textiles, such as a curtain, plush rug or piled-on pillows.
