What's next? We debated hiring a company to come and build & install all the cabinetry. We found that the standard rate for building & installing Ikea cabinetry was $100.00 per cabinet. The approximate cost for us was going to be approximately $2,000.00
This is where Aubrey and I had different views on the kitchen renovation. I wanted to hire someone to come in and do all the work - build the Ikea cabinets and installation. Aubrey on the other hand saw this as a cost saving area - if he built the cabinets himself and hired someone just to do to install, we'd save a significant amount of money. When you cut down on the time a trade has to spend on a project, you end up saving money. In the end, Aubrey won on that decision. He's building them tonight --- I give him an A+ for effort on this one. So far so good and we're on schedule!
