Kitchen Renovations and the Process

We had our kitchen renovated several weeks before the Thanksgiving holidays.  What an experience?!??  This was my first major renovation and quite possibly my last.  Actually, the project really wasn’t that bad.  In hindsight, it is easy to identify there was a process involved in the work that was done.  One very basic and sequential process that had to happen is that everything first had to be torn out.  The GC actually talked us through the entire process in great detail.  

As discussed before, virtually everything we do has a process.  Our challenge as Government Contractors is to identify and stick to the process that works best for us.  Many of the steps we discussed previously apply to all government contractors.  However, each individual will discover something special that they bring to the table that sets them apart from the rest of their competitors.  It might be your superior customer service, it might be your promptness and accuracy in submitting required reports or it might be any of a number of things. 

Now, back to the kitchen renovation story.  The kitchen was a mess!!!  No way was the work going to be completed before Thanksgiving.  The counters were torn out, the wiring was torn out, the closets and cabinets were torn out.  It looked like a grenade had gone off in the kitchen!  Several weeks later and much to my amazement, the work was finished.  Not only was the work completed before the established deadline, we prepared all the Thanksgiving food in our brand new kitchen!  I guess the GC knew what he was doing after all. 

See you on the high ground!
