Helping a First-Time Homeowner Complete Her Kitchen

In this episode, we’re helping first-time homeowner Dawn Nelson, who’s in over her head with her kitchen renovation.

Dawn wanted to take down one wall that separated her three main living areas, the dining room, kitchen and living room. But then realized she removed all the drywall on a load-bearing wall.

Homeowner Dawn Nelson’s kitchen is complete with a stylish backsplash and an over-the-range microwave properly vented to the outside. Dawn chose a new white sink that complements the space, and we filled in some holes in the flooring.

A contractor helped her fix that mistake, but then she realized that removing the wall also exposed a small patch of old flooring.

We’re going to pick up where the contractor left off, and make this place look great!
