I own a home that was built in the late 1800's, and I have started updating the bathroom and the kitchen. As contractors, do you have any thoughts on how I might be able to plan and execute all of my home improvement projects on my own? I would like to try and save money by doing most the work by myself. Any help you can give me would be great!
All my favorite kitchens have frameless kitchen cabinet doors. Can I use my existing cabinet boxes and just add cabinet doors and hidden hinges to achieve that look? I am thinking I might need to somehow remove the front frame panel from the cabinet boxes. How much should I expect to pay a contractor to do that?
It's tough right now affording any major remodeling, but we'd like to redo the kitchen and a half-bathroom in our San Antonia home. I've been reading about tax breaks this year for doing remodeling with materials that save energy. Is that for windows? Can you tell me more about the tax breaks and which kind of remodeling is covered?
