As the seasons change, so do the activities that people like to participate in. Things like biking or hiking or just hanging out at the park are solidly summer activities, while the winter invites plans that stay indoors. Changes in weather can inspire a desire for other kinds of changes, too. Like home renovations. But the itch to remodel doesn’t always come at the best time for it. If a homeowner wants to avoid disrupting their lives too much, and get through a project quickly, they should think about what time of year their remodel is planned for, because some are better than others.
