2020 changed the world in a lot of ways, more than we probably realize. It changed how people relax, communicate, work, live.

It certainly changed business in remodeling. But how exactly? We speak with three veteran business owners and remodelers—Brian Gottlieb of Tundraland, Michael Anschel of Otogawa-Anschel Design+Build+Architecture, and Bill Baldwin of HartmanBaldwin Design/Build—to better understand how last year has impacted their expectations and priorities for 2021, and how it may have also created a few serious opportunities for the market.

Also, homeowners are concerned about a lack of privacy in and out of their homes. Mikaela Sharp and Jenni Lantz of the New Home Trends Institute share the biggest privacy pain points on the latest installment of The Weekly.

Three of the most well-known, eloquent leaders in remodeling—two from the design-build side of remodeling (Michael Anschel and Bill Baldwin) and one from home improvement (Brian Gottlieb)—join me to discuss how 2020 has shaped expectations and priorities for the new year.

We discuss the value of being able to shift scale quickly, how virtual comms are both here to stay and ready to be forgotten (depending on who you ask), whether now is the time to add services and expand your market, and more.

Last year was tough for remodeling, but not as tough as expected. And as we find out during our conversation, it actually created quite a few opportunities for business owners.
