Winter weather doesn’t exactly inspire thoughts of outdoor living, but it is a perfect time to get going on your plans for spring, summer and fall. It’s a good rule of thumb to get started early, so your project will be completed when you’re ready to get outside and enjoy it.

Here are a few hurdles you may have to jump over between the start of your project and its completion:

Homeowner Association Rules
Your HOA likely requires approval of your project before you proceed. Architectural drawings may be necessary, adding more time before you can apply for a permit.

Depending on the type and size of your project, a building permit may be required. If that is the case, a permit can take from three weeks to three months to be issued.

Scheduling the Work
In the Seattle area, summer and fall seasons are prime time for installation. A qualified and reputable contractor can be booked out several months.

Materials Costs and Delivery
The cost of quality materials continues to rise steadily. Getting an early start on the season will help keep the budget lean.
