Cape Cod is windblown, environmentally sensitive, with a housing stock comprised mainly of quickly built cottages and with limited open land. This harsh environment presents the homeowner with specific challenges. Hiring local professionals, familiar with these challenges, is the best way to be assured a smooth path to your finished project. Knowing what advice is needed (what questions to ask) is not always intuitive, but the right consultants can help you to navigate the paperwork so that your dreams can be realized. This blog is meant to help you (the homeowner, the potential home owner, the builder or the property developer) to understand the process involved in undertaking renovation or new construction on Cape Cod and the Islands.
