The Sammons used $10,000 to cover taxes on the prize; they received $20,000 in gift cards to Lowe’s for materials and finishes and another $20,000 from Houzz for labor, construction and design fees. Houzz helped narrow down the search for local professionals, and the Sammons interviewed and picked their team: designer Laura Vlaming of Arkiteriors and general contractor Brian Macuga from Arbor Construction Group. The previous kitchen lacked countertop space. So much that Mandy had taken to using a dining table in the middle of the room as a prep surface. On top of that, the appliances were old, the linoleum floor was peeling, and Vlaming believes a previous homeowner had tried to refinish the plywood cabinets, but the surface didn’t take the stain evenly.
