Karen and Bruce Patrick wanted to renovate the kitchen of their Roseville home. The problem was they had no idea who could or would do the work. In fact, the Patricks were on the verge of abandoning their dream of a kitchen remodel after meeting with several designers and builders. Throughout the process a common theme kept cropping up - they weren’t budgeting enough money.
