KITCHEN V

A year long process of renovating a simple kitchen can be experienced only in NYC. And anything that can go wrong, went wrong. From extremely non-cooperative building super to the spiraling down the path of DOB bureaucracy and finally the incompetent and over confident carpenter.
Yet at the end the kitchen came out better than the client imagined and during a year of using it, they received many compliments and enjoy their family time cooking and entertaining.
