New Course! DIY Kitchen and Bath Basics

kitchen and bath

Are you ready to tackle your home renovations head on?

Looking to upgrade your house and got the gut punch quote from a professional for upgrading your kitchen, bathroom, or flooring? Yeah, It’s happened to me too. 

In fact, my very first project was demoing and retiling a bathroom as a poor college student.  It can be done, and over the last decade I have fine tuned my craft to teach YOU how! 

Did you know an updated kitchen has an  84% return on investment? Yes you heard me 84% and bathrooms come in a close second at 67%!

What does that mean? It means if you are going to invest any money into updating your home… these are the spaces you want to focus on.

 This fully online course is geared to help you learn DIY  kitchen design, bathroom fixtures, tiling, hard floor installation, and more! 

DIY Kitchen and Bath Basics is here to help get you comfortable with installing tile, installing floating floors, designing a kitchen, installing a kitchen, basic plumbing fixture installation and more!! I can’t wait for you to start tackling your own honey-do list and save thousands, all while getting the satisfaction of saying, “yeah, I built that!” 

How much do you think this kitchen would have cost for professional to build? $40,000? $60,000? maybe even $80,000?

You are probably right.  What if I told you between that the kitchen you see above only cost me $18,500. Total. That includes a $4500 allowance for brand new appliances and $7000 for quartz counters. 

How did you do it so cheap but it looks so expensive? Well my friends, that is what I’m about to teach YOU in DIY Kitchen and Bath Basics. 

60-80% of any quote you get from a professional is hours of labor. If you are willing to put in the sweat equity, you too can have the kitchen or bathroom of your dreams. Let me teach you!
