"Last year just before the holidays, I decided to level out our kitchen floor. What resulted was a total kitchen remodel. As I started to pull up the old floor, I found that a drain pipe had been leaking for years—and had rotted everything underneath. I had to remove and replace all the old floor and framing. A year later I still need to finish the sheetrock and install new cabinets."
