“We met our favorite client, a woman named Peggy, at a party about five years ago. Maybe a year and a half later, she called about adding a bathroom and remodeling the kitchen of her 1865 Georgetown home. It would have been a great project — originally budgeted at $150,000 — but we quickly learned there was extensive termite damage throughout the house.”

“Piedmont Vintage Homes is not the only builder in the region to take on vintage construction. Dan Steinkoler, a history major who attended American University, owns Superior Home Services and is rebuilding an 1853 town house in Georgetown.”

“This home is in a historic district, and we took every pain to rebuild (and, where possible) restore the original features, down to the cast-iron bootscrape on the front porch. Of all the details involved, we’re most proud of this custom handrail and baluster system. It was a collaborative effort between our production manager, Mike Martin, Ikco Stairbuilders and Handrails by Gibson. The one-of-a-kind system was turned especially for this 1865 home. It required nine coats of stain and oil, along with detailed antiquing of the finish.” Daniel Steinkoler, Superior Home Services, Washington, D.C.

Before beginning a remodeling project it’s important to identify a realistic budget. After you have come up with a number that fits your financial means, allocate 90% to the project and save 10% for contingency.
Second, come up with a list of needs and goals to help your planning process. If you are doing a substantial remodeling project you will need to hire a designer and architect in order to help you through the design, planning and permit process.
Third, create a realistic timeline. Be sure to plan in holidays, bad weather, and product lead times.
Lastly, you may want to consider several different financing options depending on the size of the project. Instead of using a savings account or credit card, taking out a home owner’s equity loan may be more beneficial and can be used as a tax deduction. Additionally, you may want to explore a number of the new federal tax credits that are currently available.

“I’ll take Steinkoler’s theory further. Call me a hopeless romantic when it comes to small-town service, but I think more homeowners appreciate the little things in this market. That last 10 or 5 or 1% of detail or thoughtfulness needn’t jack up the price extravagantly, but the goodwill gained by delivering it — so commonly overlooked — pays off for businesses that would rather serve their niche extremely well than the masses half-decently.”
