Costs you don’t think about when renovating or building

I have been slowly reading through the book – ” Building Your Own Home for Dummies”.  Some great ideas and things I had know but I had forgotten over the years.  In part if the book it talks about the kitchen being the most expensive room in the house to build or renovate.  That got me thinking about my last house and the kitchen renovation.  I think it was close to 18 years ago when we renovated the kitchen.  At the time, I went with white maple cabinets (I don’t remember the cost of them).  There was 42 cupboards and drawers in the kitchen.  The draw pulls/knobs that I liked where $13.99 each times that by 42  equals $587.58 plus then the tax would bring the total for the knobs to $675.71.  I settled for the pulls that were only $3.99 each.

I have started to look & price out those things that at least I didn’t remember would cost a great deal.  I found pulls that I like.  So as money & time allow, I will buy a few at a time.
