Leaving The Ivory Tower (2)

Once we first moved into our previous house, the kitchen was, in a phrase, GROSS! However we made some fast modifications and cleaned it up.

I’ve said earlier than I thought the bidding process was not even SHUT to being detailed enough for me (also, see note about control freak above) but I thought we received the whole lot ironed out by the time of the contract signing. What I did not plan for was the different interpretation that the contractor and I had of that contract. I believed it was a finite document and work order changes could be discussed should an issue arise however NAY! Apparently our contract was handled like a normal guideline for the challenge and open to debate – just like the Constitution!

Maybe some owners don’t care about particulars. Superior. You’re a dream consumer. But you may wish to do some soul looking out to see what you really care about and what you do not care about after which tell your contractor individuals. I do not even care if they’re insulted or not, America should be saved from sloppy particulars and kitchens with shitty undercabinet lighting.

Cupboards definitely have a fantastic influence on the general look of your kitchen. If you happen to let them get all dilapidated and dirty, they may make the whole room appear dreary. Cupboards that are nicely-maintained and stylishly designed, however, will lend a stunning visual interest to your kitchen. Replacing them altogether could be both pricey and time-consuming, although. So strive some of these price range-pleasant options; they can add fairly a little bit of pizzazz to your kitchen.

Our greatest concern through the remodel is that our house was constructed within the 70’s and the master bath was, and always might be, small – nevertheless, we needed to keep it as open and make it look as big as possible. Ben worked with us to get a really open, fashionable concept (involving transferring some low vents) that really works fairly effectively for our private aesthetic.
