Top 25 Remodeling and Renovating Mistakes to Avoid from HGTV Magazine

Longer days, warmer temperatures and more sunshine have arrived! The arrival of the Spring and Summer seasons not only mean more visits to Barton Springs and a plethora of outdoor concerts here in Austin but many people are thinking about taking on projects around the house.  This time of year offers longer work days and the dry warm temperatures makes opening or taking down walls safer from the elements! So since a large percentage of homeowners decide to undertake remodeling during the summer I thought I would give all of you a little advantage before you start this process and find yourself feeling a bit overwhelmed and under prepared.  I have found a great article from HGTV.com listing out the top 25 biggest remodeling mistakes.
