“It’s difficult to put into words how great it feels to finally fulfill a long held dream. Gratitude, joy, relief, peace… we’re feeling all of these emotions and more now that we have a brand new kitchen! Add to that, the satisfaction of having partnered with a company that helped fulfill that dream with low stress, speed, amazing detail to excellence and fun.

Dark wood island with pullout refrigerator drawer Every home is different, and every remodel is different. However, a typical medium-sized kitchen remodel with MSK Design Build has two stages: design, and construction.  Design can take anywhere from one month to 4 months, depending upon the complexity of the design, the number of products to choose, and whether or not you are a quick decision maker! Construction for a normal, medium-sized kitchen remodel should be between 8 and 12 weeks.
