Each and every year I am amazed by the people that call the studio in the middle of November or beginning of December in hopes that we will be able to plan and execute a kitchen renovation before their guests arrive from overseas for the Christmas holidays.

While I’m always a bit shocked, it has occurred to me I never understand why it takes so long to do car repairs mainly because I don’t really understand the mechanics of a working car. Perhaps the same is true when it come to kitchen design.
