Some thoughts on kitchen renovation…
~ it will take longer than the contractor says.
~ no one shows up when they say they will…….
~ be prepared for bumps in the road.We had quite a few.Broken pipes,floods,etc.….
~ doing dishes in the bathroom is not fun….
~ just keep thinking how great it will be when all the trades are out of your hair,and gone
~ the yard and garden will be torn up,too.Trades have a habit of walking right straight through your garden….
~ have everything ready before they start the renovation.To avoid delays,our contractor had me order the appliances,lighting,sink and faucet,drawer hardware,etc. before they even started working on the kitchen.Of course,everything was stored all over the house,but it did help avoid delays.
~ dust,dust,dust everywhere!It’s unavoidable.Just do what you can.
I need to get to work on the yard………
