We went from this:
It may look snazzy, but where did all that stuff come from and who did the work?
Floors: DC Floors. These guys were great! I would absolutely use them again.
Gas line plumbing: Grayton Plumbing. They did good work, didn't mind my questions (or hovering), and were neat and tidy!
Kitchen demo: yours truly. Now that I've done it there is no way I would hire someone to do it for me.
Kitchen cabinets, tile, light plumbing and electrical: Tritsch contracting (e-mail Allen at: firstname.lastname@example.org). I met Allen at IKEA while working through the kitchen planning process. They were professional, timely, and efficient. Oh, and pretty much a bargain. While your not going to get museum quality work, these guys are great, and they were really easy to work with.
Sink, faucet, garbage disposal and tile: Lowe's
Large china cabinets: IKEA
Wooden crates on shelf: World Market
Glass pedestal bowl: Crate and Barrel
Baskets above cabinets: Target
Cabinet Hardware: Restoration Hardware
Appliances: Sears (Kenmore)
