"In a single-family home, you are usually inconveniencing one person, but in a condo, you could be inconveniencing hundreds," Mr. Millholland said. "If there is not a lot of guest parking, you have to make arrangements for contractors while they are working, and it can be more complicated to stage or store materials if the unit is small. A contractor can arrange to have materials delivered at the right time so they can be installed right away rather than storing them on-site."
"In baths, condo owners are adding heating floors, which can be done electrically; frameless glass showers and marble flooring," Mr. Millholland said. "If space is an issue, we can put in smaller appliances to make the kitchen more functional, build cabinets up to the ceiling and even build shallow storage space on one wall."
