At first, house hunting sounded like a lot of fun - and then this happened…
You’d get excited every time a notification popped up from your listing app - a home in your budget was up for sale, and the photos looked amazing!
But when you visited in person, the property or the location was a let-down about 80% of the time.
Plus, with you and your partner’s conflicting schedules, you didn’t really have the luxury to do neighborhood drive-bys that often.
At some point, you saw some homes you liked - but the speed at which they went off the market made your head spin.
You did get a couple of offers in there - but they were all rejected.
And in the end, it felt like even your realtor was starting to get annoyed.
Then someone suggested: “Why don’t you just build a home? Building is cheaper than buying a fixer-upper in this part of the country anyway. Besides, you’d start with a blank slate - fresh wiring and plumbing, proper insulation, no bidding war.”
Major light bulb moment.
But you had NO idea that getting custom-designed home plans could cost that much
“Excuse me, HOW much for 4 design meetings and a couple of concepts?”
- You: before fainting from the quote that cool architecture firm your coworker suggested
Depending on where you live, getting custom plans drawn up for your dream home can cost anywhere between $40,000-$50,000…
And let's not forget the costs for basic interior architecture design, including doors, fixtures, floors, molding, and cabinetry, can go up to $30,000…
AKA: money you can save or pour back into your build to level it up.
Then you did some research and found that you could get pre-designed home plans at a fraction of the cost!
Now to find some floor plans that actually help you envision what your dream home could look like from the inside out.
Because waiting 6 months to determine whether you actually made the right investment? Absolutely excruciating.

I’m familiar with the industry - is this guide too basic for me?Not at all. Many people who are familiar with the industry are still not experts and can still make beginners mistakes. More often they are well versed in certain portions of the project and clueless on other parts of the process. This guide gives you insider tips to handle a specific type of renovation. And, you get all the resources we use for our done-for-you clients: spreadsheets for planning, templates, and examples of permits, insurance, and licenses, product lists, as well as access to our network of trusted contractors and trades. So we’re sure you’ll find this guide actionable even if you’re familiar with the industry.
Is this guide for private resident owners or those who live in a co-op?There are a few exceptions for bathroom renovations in private residences and co-ops (we clarify that in the guide). This means you’ll find this helpful whether you live in a co-op or a private residence.
When is the best time to schedule my call with Elizabeth?You can schedule a call with Elizabeth whenever you’re ready. However, we want to make sure you get the most out of your 1:1 call. We advise you to schedule it after you’ve surveyed your bathroom, prepared a list of questions, after you’ve gone through the guide up to module 4, and prepared a style board (at least) or when you’re done going through the guide.
What if my contractors and trades think I don’t know what I’m doing?When you purchase the guide, you’ll get a comprehensive list of questions and checklists (categorized by worker scope for bathroom renovations) that you can rely on to brief your workers. This means you’ll never have to wing it when you’re speaking to them.
What if I accidentally damage my home and end up increasing the cost of the renovation?You’re not doing the renovation work yourself, so the chances of damaging your home are pretty slim. Accidental damages are usually a side effect of hiring unqualified trades and contractors. But when you get this guide, you’ll learn the ins and outs of vetting and hiring qualified trades who are committed to excellence. And if you notice below-par workmanship, the guide also offers recommendations on navigating these conversations and getting replacement work done without any additional cost to you.
How soon can I start planning my remodel after going through the guide?You’ll plan as you learn. We know you don’t have the time to sit through a complicated and boring course. That’s why each module is packed with easy-to-implement tips and relevant, current information. Overall, it’ll take you a couple of days to go through the guide (think 2-3 hours each day to learn and implement), and then you’re off to the races.
