episode 015. anatomy of a kitchen remodel

  • in this podcast, i read some comments from last week’s podcast including the first review left on itunes (thank you MMbot!). i also discuss the pieces involved in doing a major kitchen remodel and provide budgetary guidelines for each of the trades involved as well as an overall budget to consider. i also describe the process involved, from initial conception to final completion. this is a different format from the interviews i’ve previously recorded, so please let me know what you think as i could do more of these kinds of episodes for master bathrooms, second story additions, and master suite additions if┬áthis proves to be valuable information.

    David, I’ve really enjoyed all your podcasts so far. You have done an excellent job explaining things and you have had some excellent guests on the show. I liked this Kitchen renovation podcast and hope to listen to more like it.

    I am in the process of taking the ARE’s and hope to be licensed in my state soon (2 exams to go).

    I am also in the process of designing my own home renovation/addition and as a result of listening to your podcasts am realizing I haven’t been thinking green as much as I could/should be. The ecorenovating podcast with Darren Moore really got me thinking about having an energy survey performed and tightening up the whole house instead of just the addition.

    Thanks for the podcast.

    hi steve!

    thanks so much for the kind words! i’m glad you like this kitchen episode because i enjoyed doing it and will do more like it. i’m glad the ecorenovating episodes got you thinking because that’s where it all starts. i tell a friend, and you tell a friend and it keeps spreading. an energy survey makes SO much sense on SO many levels. good luck on the AREs, they’ll be over before you know. and of course, thank you so much for tuning in!

    Its great in so many ways and the support setsym for writers is incredible. Its funny, compulsive and highly addictive (like fags of the C21st) but like cigarettes, it can also be bad for you so I have a stern WARNING to writers it can eat up HUGE amounts of time so if u are working on a novel and need head space, vision space, thinking space make sure you set yourself very clear boundaries for using social media. I will be logging off entirely at some point very soon apart from evenings and I will miss my twitter friends during the day but the process of writing a novel involves going down a rabbit hole and not really emerging till its done for maybe 6 months to a year. Or so I find. So twitter for novel writers i would say is a double edged sword.Somebody needs to write a book on this. A How To manage Your Social Media and Novel Writing Guide. But for me, I am simply going to cold turkey . Sorry must dash just got a tweet.
