We are about to start on a couple of major kitchen and bath renovations and it suddenly occurred to me how many people are involved in that process and how overwhelming it could be to someone who doesn’t do it every day. I thought it might help some of you if I simply documented the steps that we go through just to get through the estimate phase. If you can conquer that beast you are good to go.
