The next course for me in the BookSparks University Fall Reading Challenge for 2014 is Intro to Wood Shop with the required reading of Kitchen Love Story by Camille Finan.
Kitchen Love Story by Camille Finan
About The Book:

Yes, you can have a new, beautiful, functional kitchen at a reasonable price! Camille Finan will show you how. Kitchen Love Story was written for women by a woman. Licensed contractor and cabinet builder Camille Finan, is your personal kitchen construction advocate. Throughout the book, Camille shares lessons from years of experience building and remodeling kitchens. She will inspire and empower you to solve those kitchen conundrums that drive you nuts as you create and execute a plan that is both practical and affordable. You'll get the answers to these questions and more: Where do I start, what's DFIO and why is it so important? Can my kitchen feel 'high end' without breaking my budget? What's worth the money and what's not? How do I avoid being ripped off? How do I hire contractors, sign contracts and develop an 'escape plan?' What should I expect during the remodel experience? How do I make sure it got done correctly? In your hand are the tools you need to get unstuck, make the right decisions for your kitchen remodel and make it happen. You can do this! Camille Finan will lead the way.
This is a fun and informative book. We just bought a house, and though we are not remodeling our kitchen, we are doing some work on other areas of the house, and this book is a great reference.
