I have listed all my own spreadsheet templates and favorite tools from other sites for you on this page.

All spreadsheet templates are available in both Microsoft Excel and Numbers (iWork) formats.

Renovation Budget Spreadsheet Templates

Something about a spreadsheet makes a remodel or renovation seem a lot less terrifying! Below, I have downloads for all of my renovation spreadsheet templates. All of my spreadsheets have a basic budget that shows your estimated and actual spending, a handy to-do list, and shopping list to keep you organized during your renovation.

Advanced Templates

My renovation templates that cost $2.99 are a bit more sophisticated: these remodeling spreadsheets have some information filled in already, allowing you to get a clear estimate based on my experience (you can always change or update this based on prices in your area). The best part of about the paid version is the calculating tools! These spreadsheets have an extra page that calculates how much framing material, drywall, flooring, and ceiling materials that you will need! If you’re not sure, see more about what makes the paid version so great or take a free version for a spin.
