  1. Designer Plumbing

    Those ceiling lights are not remotely worth $400 a piece. You can get something similar to that for around $80 a piece without much research online.

  2. Chainsaws

    Remodeling a kitchen is a tricky undertaking unless you have reputable people working with you. Great job!

  3. Homerenovations

    As a single woman, I hated my compact kitchen, and finally, the time came that either I would never cook in it again. Thanks for your info on renovation.
