A Guelph mortgage broker suggest to her clients that they call Journey renovations for a full kitchen/main floor renovation.
When the Deerpath Drive home owner called us, we started by going to visit the site. We worked out a plan with the homeowner and their custom kitchen builder/installer
One of the Biggest and most important things to take care of managing expectations. It’s tough to be without your kitchen when you have a family.
After discussion with the custom kitchen company, we began with demolition. The dishwasher, fridge, stove had to move, by the finish, the kitchen would be completely different.
We gutted the kitchen, moved the electrical and plumbing. We primed, painted and installed luxury vinyl plank flooring. Then the kitchen installers arrived. Once they were done the countertop people came in to install their product.
Then we put the finishing touches on. This sounds easy, but there are LOT of finishing touches. Back splash, exhaust fan, baseboard, new lighting fixtures to name a few.
On the main floor right beside the kitchen we removed the existing oak railings and installed new more modern hardwood posts. And black iron railings. Then we carpeted the stirs.
The family was without a kitchen only 6 weeks. Again though, that’s a long time to be without a kitchen when you have children, but its not a long time for the size of the job.
