Thank you all so much for the advice! This is definitely a hard lesson learned. Right now, I’ve figured these cabinets are at less than $300 per linear foot. Just another $100 a foot would be amazingly helpful, as this house has 105 feet of cabinets! I know I’m not worth $1K per foot yet, I’m just not at that level yet. But at the same time, I’m not building junk cabinets that anyone could get at Home Depot. So I’m thinking $400-$500 per foot is about right. Now I just need to get the contractor to see it. He is not real bright, to put it bluntly. Much of the problems on this job are because he is trying to handle all the materials and not getting things to me when I need them. That HAS to change. Its impossible to work this way. The hard thing is, I knew all this going in, but I gave in because I didn’t want to push the issue and possibly lose the job. When you have a young family to take care of, its tough to think about losing work, you know? But I just ended up putting myself in a much more difficult position trying to dig out of this mess. Ahhh, the school of hard knocks. . .will I ever graduate?
