« Part 4: My tools have revolted! Part 5 of Sandbar series Part 6: Pictures! »

I am finally completely done with all the cabinets for this house. Everything is installed, hardware is one, and everything is clean. The photographer (www.coastline-studios.com) took pictures yesterday, so hopefully I will have some to post on here in the next few days. I’m very excited to show this project off!

I learned SO much on this job. Many things I will be doing differently. I feel like I just finished a class harder than any I ever took in college! Some of you probably read my thread in the forums about cabinet pricing. That was all in reference to this job. Pricing is the single biggest lesson I learned, that is for sure. Tomorrow, I have a meeting with the contractor to go over that pricing. I get to tell him how great of a deal he got, and hope that he accepts my pricing for the next project he has coming. If not, oh well, because I am not working that cheap ever again. I could make more at McDonalds, lets just put it that way. :)

sounds like it’s good that it’s over… time to move onward and forward – and if the contractor doesnt take you pricing for the next job, somebody else will. you get what you pay for, and if you want good quality, you cannot expect to get it for free (most of the time).

cheers!

Sparky,
It really sucks that we learn from our mistakes but like they say “what doesn’t kill you, will make you stronger”
Good luck on the next bid!!
