While you might not think of a quarantine as the right time to start a Charlotte remodeling or new home construction project, this actually is an ideal time to begin exploring the idea.

COVID-19 has taken a toll on so many things we all have taken for granted in Charlotte – whether that’s necessities like going to work, school, shopping and attending social activities, indulgences like planning travel or even basic family activities. However, one thing that many of our clients are focused on right now is something they have become very familiar with over the past several weeks – their homes.

While you might not think of a quarantine as the right time to start a Charlotte remodeling or new home construction project, this actually is an ideal time to begin exploring the idea. You have likely spent more time in your home than you ever envisioned over the past few weeks, and this familiarity can open your eyes to projects that need to be done. It also might have exposed design weaknesses you were previously unaware of – such as not having enough space to accommodate multiple family members working from home, living areas that aren’t open enough, or office spaces that are not nearly as private as you thought they were.

Now is the ideal time to begin exploring what you can do in your existing home or what it would take to build an addition from scratch. Thanks to technology, Palmer Custom Builders is able to hold virtual design and sales appointments through Zoom and other platforms that allow us to see your space without violating your privacy, get to know what you want and need in your home, and see if we’re the right fit for you. When we’re further along in the process, we’ve explored architectural plans with clients who were able to see what their house would look like if we moved design elements around – virtually. Clients have enjoyed being able to complete these initial meeting and planning stages without the burden of juggling normal work and school schedules and busy commutes.

While remodeling and new construction projects are underway following Covid-19 guidelines, there may be a backlog of projects (and potentially permits) when all work schedules are able to return to normal. Laying the groundwork for a project now will help ensure that you are at the front of the line when that day arrives.

Finally, many clients have the luxury of time right now to explore ideas that they normally wouldn’t have considered. You can dive into the details of architectural changes like flooring over a two-story family room or foyer, planning a new addition, or taking time to determine your interior design style for a remodel, as well as exploring appliances, fixtures, finishes and more.
