Based on my research (and some high-level discussions with one Design/Build firm) I'm thinking I'm going to need a loan for ~$300K to do the work I want.&nbsp; Zillow says my house is currently worth $450K (I'm surrounded by $1M homes).<br/><br/>Any advice on the best way for me to move forward on this project would be greatly appreciated.<br/><br/>Thanks!<br \><br \>9 replies Sat, 25 May 2013 19:21:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Where-to-start-on-a-large-home-remodel/493866/ 2013-05-25T19:21:00Z we have updated/repaired,our home.New roof, furnance, updated kitchen, baths how do I edit the value http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/we-have-updated-repaired-our-home-New-roof-furnance-updated-kitchen-baths-how-do-I-edit-the-value/405765/ 1 reply Thu, 30 Jun 2011 23:09:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/we-have-updated-repaired-our-home-New-roof-furnance-updated-kitchen-baths-how-do-I-edit-the-value/405765/ 2011-06-30T23:09:00Z Home upgrades http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Home-upgrades/397555/ <p>1</p><br \><br \>4 replies Tue, 03 May 2011 23:04:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Home-upgrades/397555/ 2011-05-03T23:04:00Z Can someone suggest a good window provider in the Seattle / Eastside area.
