Musings of a Versatile Contractor
Thoughts, Photos and Visions of New Surroundings.
You may remember your kitchen from 1985:
White formica cabinets.... White formica countertops ....Coral colored walls
The Weintraub family remembered 1985 only too well.... their kitchen still had the cabinets, floors, counters and appliances from 1985 when the house was originally built. They were ready for new....new....new...
Upon meeting with the Weintraubs, we discussed the proposed scheduling for their project. I outlined that the demolition process would take a couple of days. The alteration of walls, a new floor and the installation of the new cabinetry would take another 3 days. Granite countertops usually take a bit more time. They have to be templated, fabricated and then installed, which usually takes at least a week. During that time, the painting was completed, appliances were installed and finish electrical work was done. The Weintraubs were pleased to find out that things could move as quickly as that.
Mess ? What Mess? Plastic sheeting was hung up to separate the kitchen area from the rest of the house. Every single day, the debris from the construction is cleaned up, never left on site. This is just one more thing that I am a stickler about. My work areas absolutely must be cleaned up each and every day.The professionals that I use to complete kitchen remodeling are the cream of the crop. They have been selected personally by me after a lengthy weeding out process of others who did not meet my strict criteria.
The Weintraubs hand selected all of the items for their new kitchen. Ceramic tile, appliances, cabinets, granite countertops, light fixtures and paint colors.... all of their choosing. Allowing the clients to choose all of their own details, puts them in control of the costs of their own project. The Weintraubs enjoyed the autonomy of the selection/pricing process.
The project was completed on time, on budget and with smiles all around.
