I'm planning a move to Melbourne, and my soon-to-be PPOR will be vacant for the next month. Hoping to get some renos done before I get back and have got one quote done. I'm a bit dubious on whether it represents value/how much this stuff should cost. Is this fair? Outrageous? Any suggestions on someone else who could do the work? I don't have exact square metre measurements but it's a fairly big kitchen. 1. Replace existing countertops (approx 9m) with ambassador stone - $5170. 2. Build new kitchen island with seating area and drawers in two pac and ambassador stone top - $6050 3. Pantry - create new pantry with open shelving on each side in two pac - $4950 4. Create spot for microwave by adjusting existing high cupboard - $715 5. Re-tile splashback - $2970 (allowing $60sqm for tiles) 6. Square off two arched entrances - $1,980 7. Disconnect gas stove in second kitchen and discard - $550 8. Robes on either side of a fireplace (i.e. two robes) - $3630 9. Bookshelves on either side of a fireplace (1.2m each) in colorboard, also under and to the side of a window - $5500 total. What do the wise heads (hopefully) gathering here think?
