3 Tips From Brett

1. The biggest mistake I see home owners make when trying to renovate their own space is definitely under estimating the cost of materials, the time a reno takes with just two people and the fact that you usually don’t get everything right the first time.

2. One thing I wish every home owner knew, is how to properly use their septic system if they have a private septic. It can really do a lot of damage to the environment and well water when misused, which is very common.

3. People should take a little time to research their contractor/ designer. Experience just means you have already made most of your mistakes. You don’t want to be one of those mistakes of a new contractor who is still learning on the job. Make sure they are insured and or bonded and take the time to call a reference or two.

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Brett

1. “If I had to move to another country it would be Costa Rica. I spend a lot of time there and between the culture, the nature and the surf, it always feels like home.”

2. “Something you would not guess about me, I spend a lot of time song writing.”

3. “A must have at a party that I am throwing is definitely guacamole.”
