One thing that every house needs, whether it is a big home on the West End in the Ironwood subdivision, or a smaller house downtown near the Rimrocks, is a kitchen.

In fact, the kitchen is often the focal point of many houses.  It is hard to make a living room unique, and almost all bedrooms look the same.  But the kitchen has so many stylistic variations, that it can make, or break the house.

Many homes in the Billings area have kitchens that are grossly outdated.  And doing a remodel on this focal point of the house is one of the most important you can do to your home.  It is also one of the hardest to do yourself.  Style and design are easy to do by opening any number of home improvement magazines.  Collecting ideas and jotting them down are fine.  But when it comes to doing the actual work, that is another story.

For those who like to do projects themselves, there are many things you need to be aware of.  The first is that remodeling a kitchen takes a lot of time.  Unless you have a lot of spare time, you can expect the area to be torn up for quite a while.  During the whole process, however, you will still need a kitchen to cook, eat, and store your food.  Since most houses are only equipped with one such room, those who do the remodel on their own will often find themselves without a workable cooking space for possibly up to several months.  Even with great planning there are plumbing issues that will come up, wiring issues, and keeping cabinets plumb and level is no easy task.  In short, kitchen remodels are not simple projects.

The complexity of these projects is why most people who are fixing up their kitchen will hire someone to do the work.  With over 30 years of experience, we here at Van Arsdale Construction know exactly what goes into the remodel process.  We understand what to look for, the snags that will likely be encountered, and the best ways to make your kitchen look great without breaking the bank.
