Home Renovation

My wife and I recently purchased a home in San Diego, and would like to do a major renovation prior to moving in - remodelling, structural adjustments, both exterior and interior modification, etc. We are collecting ideas, reading up on literature and talking with each other a lot. However, we have no idea how best to accomplish this. Where do we start? How do we locate good designers? Tips on locating various professionals. Just don’t want to be in a hit or miss situation. Any advice?

Thanks. Appreciate the tip.
