Check the habitat for humanity website for a re-sell store near you. They have building materials that builders have donated excess materials from jobs they have completed and re-sell them at a lower cost.
The website is

I would get on craigslist and search out tradesmen that specialize in kitchen remodels. Before I did that I would go to Lowe’s, Home Depot, or any reputable cabinet supply house or maker and have them draw a plan for your kitchen and provide you with quotes on the cabinetry.

With that in hand I would approach the tradesmen and ask them for a labor price only. On top of that I would ask for nothing less than three references and I would do more than just talk to them on the phone. I would ask them if you can come and see the work that was performed.

Finally, I would never ever ever EVER give a contractor any money in advance. You will all ready have purchased the cabinets and will just be paying for their labor. If anyone asks you to justify that, you have to ask yourself, “does your boss pay you on Monday at the beginning of the work week or does he pay you on Friday AFTER your work is done”? Don’t pay a contractor until you are completely satisfied with their finished product.

I can also provide you with guidelines for what the renovation should cost for flooring, electrical, or any other project you plan to take on in the kitchen.

Here are a couple of links to some of my most recent work.
