Help me spend my appliance money
I am remodeling for the first time and am working with an architect. I realize now that I need to save some money by changing appliances that have been specified. I am asking for help from all you experts.
For cooking, he has chosen all Wolf:
36" range with griddle (I can't decide if I really want a griddle) (GR364G)
Also the SS riser for the range (819078)
Hood with external blower (PWC362418)
Wall oven (SO30FSS)
microwave/convection (I do not need convection) (MWC24)
Note that the layout has the microwave situated above the wall oven. That is important to know for aesthetics.
The dishwasher is a Viking (FDW100). I do not need a custom panel. It will be a stainless steel front.
I would like to find a $4,000 savings by changing appliances.
Prices for these appliances at Abt is $12,792.
The design is finished and construction documents are being prepared to get bids. I realize now that I should have worked on appliances earlier. A newbie's mistake.
Any help is appreciated.
