Finally, this challenge now can be streamlined with the help of smart parking solutions. I’m sure by now you are tired of reading about our kitchen remodel…I know I am! Your kitchen, and the rest of your house, just feels like home. I knew I did not want to pull my cabinets off the wall and replace them.
Based on our general contractor’s initial bid, we thought we could do everything we wanted for $70,000. Cope and stick for all the drawers and doors with 1/4in ply panels and carcasses are all 5/8 or 3/4 A/B plywood. Since then we’ve been looking closely at everything, trying to see where we can cut costs.
It looks so much more than what they spent- even a light freshing up would cost twice as much here in NY suburbs by the kitchen designers/contractors. So we looked into using reclaimed wood on the counters. I knew we had to replace the drywall along the outside wall.
My point is this; I could say a modest bathroom remodel is about $30,000. Off to pin – this may be my favorite kitchen remodel ever!!! By the time I got to the sink area, I was pulling off the drywall in chunks. People who live in New York city are going to pay a lot more for a kitchen remodel than someone who lives in Sandwich, IL. Labor is more expensive in New York because the cost of living is higher.
It was expensive and I had to drive to Minneapolis to pick it up but there’s no longer a hint of cold to the floor so I guess it was worth it. I think the brand name is hardiboard. It was over 6 months before we even touched the kitchen though. Just unloading tools and materials can take half a day when working in a high rise.
