This isn't exactly a wood working thing, but I'm curious for opinions because I know some of you are in the biz.
I'm into old houses, particularly those with cool built-ins and neat moldings. So, I enjoy watching the TV shows where they do renovations. But, I'm always blown away by the budgets. They seem waaaay low.
I watched one today where they relocated several walls including demo of the old walls and construction of new, painted the place and put in an entirely new kitchen including appliances. The whole thing was something like $60k
Am I missing something, or do I just live in the wrong part of the country?
