It has been an 8 month process overall including planning. The actual remodel took almost 7 weeks. We re-tiled the foyer and completely remodeled the downstairs kitchen, bath and mudroom. We added a new sliding door in the kitchen where a large picture window used to be. We also removed the soffits in the kitchen and mudroom and extended the cabinets to the ceiling. We also added recessed lighting in all rooms. I purchased almost everything on line so let me know if you have any questions.
