It’s called a kitchen remodel.
If I could go back to April and tell myself what I know now so I would avoid this additional stress. So I’d never start this project.
We hired a designer thinking that would help. And while it has, it’s still stressful. Very stressful.
First, our budget is completely blown. At this point, we are literally double what we’d planned. And construction hasn’t yet started. Yes, I did some research ahead of time. You know me. I even made a detailed list of what I thought needed doing and the cost of each. I thought I was estimating high. I was so wrong. So very wrong.
Second, they lost six of our cabinets. SIX. How do you lose six cabinets?!? It appears as if an entire pallet walked out of the warehouse. They are still searching for it. We’re considering putting up wanted ads.
Third, I was wrong about the start date. I thought we were setting it after the cabinets arrived… Which led to a frantic rush to get the rest of the materials purchased.
None of which are coming in on time.
Why yes, I am a little stressed.
But I’m still writing.
