The Kitchen Remodel (2)

NuCrete concrete countertop in Irvington Industrial Modern Kitchen project. We had that same one in our dining room when we moved in. It took us forever to find a replacement so I think we had to live with it for 2 years! This is where I added a pop of color to our all white kitchen!

I’m sure it would crush some fantasies which eventually are crushed after much effort from the homeowner and architect/designer/estimator. When we got to a piece that would have the cord, he notched out an area for the cord to come through at the top, and put an indention down the piece, with the router, so the cord would have somewhere to sit.

At the end of week 1 the kitchen looks much the same as it did after the demolition. We discussed a few different design options and decided that keeping it simple was …

Depending on the builder, cost estimates were anywhere from $100 to $450 per square foot. I still haven’t tallied all the bills from our kitchen remodel. It just sits in the cracks and crevasses, it isn’t over the entire surface. I decided to do the kitchen my way – one step at a time.

Friday Favorites: 09.08.17 – Short, holiday weeks are funny. To save money, we thought of using granite or some other solid surface. This did made it easy to work with each individual piece, to hide the electrical cords. Established in 1966, Imperial Kitchens and Baths Inc.

We added a brace and a piece that would cover the gap from the door to the sink. This does have a green tint to the wood, so it was hard to work with as well. I’ll be posting all sorts of tips and tricks, from the little details, you …

I recently came across another source of advice on renovation costs at (). That site lists the cost of supplying and installing a deck at $20/sq ft. So, for a true idea on how much to expect your remodel to cost you, stop blogging. There is much left to be done, but we finally have water and all appliances and countertops intstalled.

Oak was similar in price, but to reddish, and a very hard wood, which meas cutting and adhering would be tougher. The next step was the removal of the back splash and counter tops. I think you mentioned it before in a previous post. The garbage truck has two metal arms that fold together on either side of the plastic bin, lifts it and dumps it. Luckily the trash guy saw me one day and stopped.

Plenty of storage and a small sink (the laundry room sink has become the diswashing station). I found some amazing wood that had come off of an old barn, but it was obviously in rough shape. First of all the cellulose was packed in the walls so tight that it didn’t even fall out when I tore the walls off and the floor didn’t have any insulation in them at all.

Granite installation (3 times the cost of the slab!!): $3,430. Thanks for including the details on cabinets etc laura. Ideal since you can see our entire main kitchen/ island as soon as you open front door. It would be really nice to put all of this responsibility in the hands of a general contractor.

It works great for me and this is where I saved money. Don’t forget that these costs are just for the construction. Here is one …

Countertops can cost several thousands of dollars for a kitchen remodel. I love that with the added space, our table isn’t right up by the window anymore. We could reuse the kitchen floorboards that were still in good shape in the living room to fill in the large hole that the floor heater left when we tore it out.

The chandelier is so beautiful 🙂 I wish I could buy the same for my kitchen. Would love to see even other rooms in your house~ Laundry Room, storage room, basement. At the time, I thought nothing of it, but I’m taking your remarks about the talents of this homeowner as a compliment myself, if that’s OK by you!

And the guy even told us that unless one of us was a stay-at-home parent, we would be crazy to try to do the whole project without a general contractor. Oh one …

Okay, I know it’s considered gauche to talk about money, but we’re laying out all the details of our final budget because when we first started thinking about remodeling our kitchen, that was the one area that we were totally in the dark about, and we would have loved to have seen detailed budgets of other kitchen remodels.

You can find this information on their website: Cost Vs. Value. Then we started with the total tear out of our old kitchen. It seems like I’m glazing over A LOT of work here but it was all really repetitive; rip, joint, cut, join, glue, clamp and sand… So I guess at this point we see some before and after pics.kitchen remodel cost

I did some negotiating with various contractors and got the price down. We himed and hawed about what tile to use and decided to go with 18in square. I don’t think …

And if you’re not rearranging the layout, there is no reason to gut the kitchen. Thanks, Joni for the post and to the owner as well, for providing all the details! I found The Gardener’s Cottage (years ago) from a picture I saw of your kitchen on another blog and it’s been my favorite ever since.

Remember, the kitchen is small and only has 3 base cabinets and one upper (w/ doors) so that kept costs down. This is also a very good post which I really enjoyed reading. As you can see from the detailed budget below, we exceeded our initial budget by a little over $20,000!

Labor costs (Includes: electrical; drywall; install cabinets, appliances, sink, faucet; install gas line for gas cook top; install plywood decking for granite countertops): $25,407. It is no big deal and again, love the way it looks. It’s hard to see the cracked …

We didn’t use pine since it is such a soft wood, and has a yellow undertone to it, that might change the coloring we were going for. It did add to the cost, but I’m so glad we did it! You can also find different brands of these knobs and to top the list are Amerock knobs.

I wanted mine to be the same from the counter up. It took me six months to find something I liked and could afford. This is one of the most appealing, attractive and serene kitchens I’ve ever seen. Yes, it’s a drag to be …

The website we had hoped to find before beginning our own kitchen remodel. It didn’t technically give me carpal tunnel but it sure made me sure I had it. After a day of hammering that prybar I couldn’t make a fist the next morning. It did a good job getting under the layers but it was still a pain because the scraps kept getting jammed in where the blade screwed to the bottom of the handle.kitchen remodel cost
