Any advice on what time of year to do a kitchen remodel?
I am a stay at home mom and we have two kids, age ten and three. So I was thinking over spring break next year we could go on vacation and the contractor could do the demo and then for the rest of the work the kids would be in school for at least part of the day. Usually the worst of the rain is over by then--we live in N.Ca and the remodel work will include repairing some dry rot and putting in bigger windows, so there will be some outdoor work including patching stucco and painting.
Dh was suggesting doing it in the summer instead as the weather is more reliably dry then, both because of the outdoor work and because it would make grilling dinner more pleasant.
