After a month, the notion that we just had a few fixes has gone horribly awry. Some touchup exterior painting has turned into painting the whole house although just trim. Replacing an island has turned into a complete kitchen update. Some trees that looked battered as the result of two hard winters will have to come down. (40 feet high pines) A number of issues have been resolved but the list grows longer and longer.
Okay, give me your guesstimates for replacing the kitchen cabinets with maple cabinets. Redoing the formica counters with granite or that newer stuff-can't think of the name. Putting in a new island with a new range in the middle. Moving a fridge and extending the counter to take its place. And of course, some odds and end painting and fixing. We'll get the bill tomorrow. The only new appliance will be the range. Oh, replacing the closet door with something more attractive. On the bright side, we already redid the slate for $1200.The part of the kitchen with cabinets is roughly 12 x 16.
I want to know whether to be shocked or not. I realize different areas have different prices but just an overall guess.
