Home Renovation Advice

My wife and I are big time DIYers. However, the scope of this project is beyond us so we’re hiring out. I can’t believe it because we were almost certainly moving to a new house six months ago. Then we saw all of the houses in the area where we want to be and they all had at least one MAJOR hangup. Meanwhile we were not “living” in our current house because were getting it ready to sell so that we can move to a house that does not exist...

I know that there are at least a few of you in “the biz”, could ya help a fella out? I have worked with general contractors in the past as a sub for AV/IT wiring etc. I reached out to one of those guys for advice/a quote from his company but have not heard back.

Should I be talking to an architect first? I know some construction firms have that in house, that a better route?

I put the project on home advisor and have only heard back from a large local company that seems really thirsty...They reached out to me, none of the companies that I have sent “invites” to have responded.

In this project there is an additional bathroom, a bathroom remodel, a kitchen remodel, annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd.

I know that I am at the very least a year away from backing the cars into their new home, but I’m looking to enjoy this pregame excitement before the costs and stress of the project move in!

Any do’s don’ts, advice of any kind is appreciated.
