It’s that time of year when we get folks calling and asking us to complete a kitchen remodel for them before their family arrives for the holidays.

Let’s presume a targeted completion date of December 15th.  This gives you a little over a week to clean up, decorate, and stock the liquor cabinet for your Christmas party.

Most kitchen projects take about 6-8 weeks of construction time.  This means that we need to get started on construction no later than October 15th.

Kitchen has been insulated and awaits city inspection.

Backing up further, we have the design process.  After meeting with our kitchen designer for the first time, it typically takes a little back and forth with revisions and perfections to get the design just how you like it.  Then we need to bring in the construction team (plumber, electrician, carpenters, drywallers, etc.) to review the plans at your home, iron out details, and submit bids.  After that, we submit everything to the city for permits.  This process can take another 4-8 weeks, which puts us at August 15th.  Oops, that was 2 weeks ago!

Our kitchen remodeling projects are successful because of the high level of thought and planning that goes into them long before the old cabinets start getting torn out.  As our clients can attest, this careful planning and attention to detail ahead of the project results in a finished kitchen that is completed on time, on budget, and will serve your needs beautifully for many years.

If you’d like to get started on your St. Patricks Day kitchen, please give Ruth a call at 651-497-7715.
