After years of being involved in the home design field, I have to say, starting from the ground up, from nothing, is the most rewarding project. To aid in the beginning stages of a project saves cost in the end because you are able to work with the contractor with the lighting design, the woodwork, the fixtures, some of the initial finishes... I love checking the daily progress of a project too. Studs, sheet rock, walls, paint!!! Start to finish.
