Our second bid on the kitchen project was much more reasonable than the first, but didn’t include as many items. Which is kind of OK with us, as you will discover when reading forthcoming posts about some of the other proposals we have received. In this project plan, our guy would remove the old kitchen, including the walls, floor and ceiling, and then do all the electrical, plumbing, installation, framing and drywall installation for the new space. Just writing that down makes me nervous about how disruptive, messy and noisy this is going to be. Kitty will not be pleased. I’m sure they can do all of this in an afternoon. He would also install whatever cabinets, plumbing fixtures, lighting, and appliances we acquire, but we’d need to find others to do the flooring and countertop installations. He’d be the project manager overseeing these other people, and coordinating their activities. We would go out and find all the parts that will make up the new kitchen in this approach. Wait until you hear about the next guy though; no need for us to be worried about making decisions with his plan – he knows best!
