Your Uncle Gertie gave you $30,000 but with strings attached. He wants you to throw a huge 60th birthday party for him at your house. He bluntly told you to get the kitchen remodeled in time for his party. Today is October 28th and he wants the party to be on New Year’s Eve. It’s a good news/bad news thing. Good news that your kitchen will be remodeled, bad news is that Uncle Gertie is retired and has a lot of time on his hands and wants to be involved with the changes. You have been thinking of selling your house so even though you would like to turn this down, the offer is a good one and a new kitchen would boost the selling price while making the house easier to sell. As a result, you agree to the terms. Both of you agree you need new cabinets, countertops and appliances, switching from a gas to electric stove. You want a new layout of the kitchen that will require the help of a kitchen designer and this the likely relocation of the sink/dishwasher. You are planning to take some vacation time to work the project but you will have to hire professional to complete the majority of the work.
