|HOW TO PREPARE
FOR A KITCHEN REMODEL
> Inform the workers about children and pets so they know to be extra careful with doors and
gates and to watch underfoot.
> Designate an entrance for kitchen material deliveries and traffic.
> If the workers are not bringing a portable toilet, decide which bathrooms are off-limits and
let them know.
> Keep your cell phone charged.
> Post a list of contractors’ cell phone and beeper numbers on the wall.
> Pick an area to serve as a message center. Leave a notebook and paper there so you can
leave messages for the contractor (and vice versa) when you aren't in the house.
