  • 00:00:00 In this section, the video explains that kitchen renovation timelines are often completely glossed over in TV shows. It takes a lot of time to make the necessary decisions and order everything, and delays can happen for several different reasons. For this particular kitchen renovation, the appliances took a long time to get, especially after the oven they had chosen got discontinued, and there was a delay in shipping as well. Cabinetry and countertops are another big timeline issue, with all the carcasses needing to be in place and locked down before measurement can take place. Custom pieces like the panel for the dishwasher can also take extra time to create, as they need to match with the rest of the cabinetry.
