Hi" Kimberly, The cost depend's on where you live, if you live in India, the cost very low, if in the big apple, then it will cost an arm and a leg. No, joking aside,, take care when you start to think, "oh" I can do this,and then I can do that, this and that will cost money,if you dont have any know how,. If you change the kitchen, the get some one who has done this sort of thing before, ( its nice to see the stars at night, but not through the roof). Take your time "it may take a long time" so what, its your thing, its what you want to do. But when its all done (if there is ever such a time) you can sit back and say "I did that" Get as much information as you can, then start,,,slowly. John 2000.
