Summer is in full swing, which means that the kids are out of school, vacations are on the calendar and that home addition you were hoping to have started isn’t even in the planning phase yet. If you feel like you’ve let summer slip away and will need to wait another year before beginning that major home renovation you’ve always wanted, think again. Here are a few reasons why fall is the new summer here in the mid-Atlantic when it comes to remodeling your home.


The D.C. metro area can feel like a real swamp this time of year and with builders and designers constantly in and out, it is difficult to keep the house cool, which can run up your air conditioning bill. Additionally, fall-time temperatures are dramatically cooler and more desirable for outdoor labor.

School’s Out…Forever??

With the kids home 24 long hours a day, this translates into extra bodies getting in the way of your design build team. Unless you have a backyard full of child-friendly accommodations (pool, swing set, moon bounce, etc.) or plan to send them to Grandma’s for 6-8 weeks, it is extremely difficult to keep them out of the way. Additionally, little ones are a safety concern at a job site.

Alternatively, wait until the kids are back at school so your team can work quickly and efficiently.


Summer is the most popular time for family vacations. As a result, work slows down, making it more difficult to complete a project in a timely manner. Wait until September or October when your and your design build team’s schedule are vacation free. This reduces any foreseeable delays in completing your renovation.
