Book Synopsis:

Shopping trips to discover trends, cabinet styles, counter top materials, appliances and plumbing fixtures are only the opening skirmishes when planning a kitchen renovation battle plan. Renovation Bootcamp: Kitchen is the ultimate step-by-step, behind-the-scenes manual to remodel a kitchen. This must-have manifesto is loaded with "before" and "after" photos, drawings, questionnaires, lists, and "Tales from the Trenches" from the author's own jobsites. Packed with practical, no-nonsense advice, checklists and proven recommendations, the book will help the novice and seasoned renovator alike plot a logical course of action before jumping into the fray.

Learn how to:
• determine how long it should take
• de-code the design process
• establish a budget
• hire a contractor
• ask the right questions when shopping for cabinetry, appliances and materials and so much more.

Armed with this renovation road map, homeowners can plan their strategy so they won't just survive, they'll save time, money, sanity and win the renovation war!
This book is not meant to be a DIY guide. The author does not advocate DIY kitchen projects since it is the most dangerous room in the house to renovate.
You can buy the BOOK at:
Barnes & Noble

My Thoughts:

As someone who really wants to renovate our kitchen, this book is just the help that we could use. It has given us a realistic look at what can and can't be done with our budget as well as with our experience. It covers a LOT of good information and gives one a lot to think about and consider. I do like the workbook pages, as they really cover things I hadn't considered. Lighting, how I want my appliances, waste bins, etc. The little things I'm sure I would have forgotten.

This book is not a DIY book, but instead, one that will help you figure out what you want and how you want it, and  keep it within the budget you have to work with. It is necessary to contact a contractor and know what you want before you talk to him. Walking in unprepared will just get you a kitchen you spent a lot of money on and are still not satisfied with. The kitchen is one of the most expensive upgrades to your house, so why wouldn't you want to go in educated and prepared? This book will help you do that!
