Morten has a keen sense of space and can picture the finished project from the first meeting. His experience allows him to identify and correct potential problems and issues before they become serious. It is vital that a remodeler can adapt to changes as no two jobs are the same and that there always are hidden problems when you work with existing homes.
As a remodeler, I’m often asked the following question: ‘Should I remodel/add-on or should I move?’ Well I say: I’m the wrong person to ask, as I have a vested interest in remodeling your home. Also it seems like everyone knows a realtor who claims that it is best to move. Unfortunately, the realtor has a vested interest in selling and buying homes including yours. So both professions have a bias toward their own benefits.
Nevertheless, I generally go out on an a limb, removing my remodeler hat and give the following advise: If you and your family are happy with your current neighborhood (neighbors, friends, surroundings, parks, schools etc.), then you should seriously consider remodeling and/or adding space if needed to your current home. However, if you do not like your current neighborhood, then chances are that no amount of remodeling and money spent will make you happy. In that case, by all means move to a different location.
