Blueprint for Success

The January 2013 Contractor Advantage magazine contains an article by Peter Forbes on avoiding potential “surprises” when doing a home renovation.   Before starting any renovation project, Forbes urges home owners to view the film entitled, “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House“.  It “instill[s] a dose of reality … about the potential “surprises” that inevitably crop up…”, says Forbes.   Bamford Construction couldn’t agree more.  The film takes a humorous look at both potential technical and human trials  that can be experienced when doing a home renovation or when building your dream home as is the case in the film.  It begins with a couples’ initial renovation ideas, plans, designs, changes and construction, to the final completed project.  As Forbes comments, the challenges confronting the Blandings is as real for clients renovating today as it was in 1948 when the film was produced.  As such, viewing this film is an excellent (and entertaining) preliminary step to success in any home renovation.
