If it was for renovation, I would think it would be added to the Basis of that renovation, rather than a direct deduction.

With that in mine, yes, I would use the mileage as a 'cost' to add to the Basis (assuming that was the primary purpose of the trip).

1) Round trip? 2) Without a home office, not "just commuting"?

Traveling outside your metro area is not commuting - it is traveling
