“The Internet changed everything!” so says everybody about everything. But for homeowners looking to explore rethinking their home, places like HomeAdviser, Houzz and Porch are making connections with architects and designers as effortless as a dating site. And perhaps as disappointing.
After sixth months of millions of us being sequestered in their homes, Connecticut may be experiencing a boom in residential construction. Or maybe just a boom of interest in rethinking our homes after a season of staring at our four walls.
