Some families give scarves for Christmas. Others give kitchen floors. “That’s seriously how our kitchen reno got started,” says Katherine Bailey, owner of a local design firm, Kat Bailey and Company. On December 26, 2011, five of Katherine’s relatives—including her dad, who works in commercial construction—arrived at the Baileys’ Birmingham, AL, home and began demolition on the cramped kitchen.
“At first the plan was just to redo the floor,” says Katherine’s husband, Clark, a traffic engineer. “But before we knew it, a whole remodel was in the works.” Katherine’s family completed the demo in a few days, then left Katherine and Clark to finish the job. “I worked for Katherine’s dad in construction during college, so I knew something about remodeling, but I also had to teach myself a lot,” says Clark.
Ten weeks, $3,100, and just one professional hire (a pro to put up drywall) later, the Baileys had a brand-new kitchen. Jump to the next page to see how it turned out.
