And so the madness begins.

J and I have been talking for a long time that the kitchen and bathrooms need to be upgraded and remodeled. We've even gone so far as to draw up a rough plan of what we want to do the kitchen, and met with a contractor. The price is incredible. There's so much that needs to be done.There's not just the inside, there's the outside as well. J is starting to have real fits over all of this. He can't make any decisions and what he really wants is a science lab. The problem is that it would be grossly expensive -- soapstone countertops are not cheap, are porous, are high maintenence and god help you if you chip or break it. I am wanting quartz -- it's high durability, doesn't stain, and much cheaper than soapstone. In any case, it's estimated (if we believe the contractor) to run to six figures. Ouch. OUCH. OUCHOUCHOUCH. So it goes.

Oh noy. You may vheck stores to see the actual price of the materials needed. That could lessen the costs.
