About this course:

This introductory course explores current information on the challenges and pitfalls of residential remodeling. Remodeling is presented as a series of steps covering potential resale value; remodeling cost and financing; architectural planning and design; household safety considerations; geologic, site, and structural engineering; resistance to earthquake damage; home mechanical systems (electrical, plumbing, heating, and cooling); building department procedures and limitations; and residential construction. Illustrated lectures and a field trip are conducted by design professionals and craftspeople who specialize in remodeling. Participants also review the redistribution of existing space and the quest for new space to satisfy ever-changing modern lifestyle needs. Kitchens, family rooms, baths, and master suites receive special attention.
