Hey gang, This is my first post. I've been doing a lot of searching around for an upcoming project. I find forums to be much more helpful, so here I am. I've never done any type of remodeling or renovations before. This fall/winter I am purchasing a condo in the complex I currently live in. It's on the top 2 floors of a 5 floor building. The reason for the purchase is for extra room and for the City view w/ patio. Very nice space. The remodel is completely for myself - I plan on living there for a long time, if not for the rest of my life. I regularly visit a specific hotel when traveling. The room is absolutely amazing. I alwasy said that if/when a Penthouse apartment opens up, this is EXACTLY how I want the inside of it to look like. I would love to just take someone to the hotel, show them the room, and say "make it happen"! Sounds easy enough - but I'm not a fool. I know there is SO much more to it, headaches included! LOL Which is what brings me here. Where does one begin? Who do I make initial contact with to get things rolling when the time comes and the place is mine? A general outline would be much appreciated. Who is the person that I would take to the hotel to take notes on the setup, design, style? Who do they take the information to, to plan it all out, etc? Thanks in advance for any info or materials you can direct me to. I have NO idea what I'm getting myself into, but luckily I will remain in my current apartment until the new one is ready! Thanks again.
