Welcome

Welcome to our new podcast!

We are going to be covering a lot of different topics here as this podcast evolves, but we are going to kick the podcast off with what we are calling The Project Planning Series. This series is going to cover all the in's and out's of how to successfully plant and execute your home renovation. From creating early design notebooks, to choosing your team, how to navigate the bidding process, how to budget, handling change orders, payment schedule, job walk throughs and more. We are also going to be providing some spreadsheets you can use as templates to help you stay organized and jumpstart your process.

We could not be more excited to start posting episodes, which we will be doing by the end of June. We are recording as fast as we can right now!

We definitely want your questions to be a big part of this because we believe design and construction should be a conversation, so we want to address the things that are most pressing for you. We are still thinking about the best way to do this, but the way we envision it for now is having you guys reach out on Twitter with the hashtag #HOMEwTheCousins. We will compile questions over a few weeks and then we will do specific Q&A eps to answer everything that comes in. And even if you don't have a question we would love to hear your thoughts on this new endeavor...

Thank you for checking us out, we can't wait to get these episodes live!

Much Love -A&J
