How to Manage Your Kitchen Remodel – Brendan O’Sullivan

Great……. You’ve hired a contractor (or you’ve found reputable subcontractors). Wheew. Now what?


Let’s get your dream kitchen built!

It’s time you start creating some realistic timelines with your contractors. Set a schedule and make sure you’re on people’s calendars. Deposits are now required for all of the products you selected. It’s go time.

But I get it. You have a few more questions.

Maybe your contract was a little vague.

Maybe you didn’t nail all the details down (like I told you too!)

Maybe you didn’t listen to episodes 1-10 🙂

“Change order! Again!”

We’re here for you. I think I’ve got what you need.

This conversation I had with Brendan O’Sullivan may help.

Brendan is a carpenter and the owner of Keystone Home Remodeling. He builds kitchens and bathrooms in and around Norristown, PA. He knows his stuff.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • How Brendan initiates a potential new client
  • My personal rant on finding contractors
  • Design first people!
  • Why communication is so important
  • Do contractors make money on change orders?
  • Why a hands-on contractor makes sense
  • DO NOT pay in full before the job is complete

Thanks to Brendan for his time and knowledge. Lots of helpful info in this episode.
