*Sometimes subcontractors are willing to barter their services if you have something to offer. As a dentist, the homeowner in this project will be working on several of his subs' teeth to help pay for the addition.

*Be ready for weather delays. This project was slowed more than once by snow.

*An additional cost for this renovation is a back-up generator to keep the filters running if the electricity goes out.

*When doing something specialized like a koi pond, be sure to do your research. Subcontractors probably won't be as specialized as you are.
