Devoted DIY-ers: The whole family helped with demolition, even Tom and Heidi’s 5-year-old son. Tom and Patrick installed custom cabinets, laid the tile floor, and put in the stained glass and white subway tile backsplash. The remodeling project was completed in seven weeks and cost $22,000. They kept within their budget by doing the labor themselves and shopping around for materials, said Heidi. “It was very dusty and I had a new baby,” she said. “But seven weeks of your life, when you get a beautiful kitchen for a lifetime, is not that long.”
