HAHA, It is honestly a nightmare. Very well written article. However, if you are opting for a designer who is agile and gets the work done quickly, then this nightmare could be alot shorter. When I hired kitchen remodeling consultant Manhattan Beach, I uprfront told them that I was to be done with this ASAP, and they totally understood. They beautifully renovated my kitchen within a week, making sure that no details are missed.
