A) Pay house cash & get loan for improvement
B) Get a small loan amount for the home (10K) and use the left over cash we have for improvement.
If that makes any sense now....
Yep, go to your local bank where you do your checking, savings, etc. and they should be able to take care of you with very little of the hassle you would experience on the secondary market.

I would suggest you pay cash and get a loan for the home improvements. You might be able to get a 0% rate for 12 months or something like that. Depending on how much you need for the improvements, maybe use a credit card that will offer 0% for 12 months and make a large enough payment to pay it off before a higher rate kicks in.
