Yesterday the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) Puget Sound Chapter and Rebuilding Together Seattle gave an appreciative homeowner a much needed renovation.
Rebuilding Together Seattle RTS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free home repairs to low income homeowners (particularly those who are elderly, disabled, or families with children), so they can live in warmth, safety, and independence.
Yesterday with the coordination of many NKBA volunteers and donations we gave a home a new life. The entire kitchen was gutted and rebuilt with stock cabinetry and new appliances. The outside was painted and the yard was readied for new landscaping. All in a day!
From sourcing donated materials, equipment, labor and carpenters to organizing 80+ volunteers, it’s a huge job that commences in one beautiful day of organized chaos.
“Once plans are in place, it’s amazing what we can get done in one day, and the difference in someone’s life we can make,” explains Roshele Allison, CMKBD of NW Home Designers. Many thanks for chairing this massive effort!
Before the day started, plans were drawn in detail for a new kitchen layout using stock off the shelf cabinets.
Appliances were donated and delivered. A large refuse container and port-a-potties lined the curb. So many details were necessary to pull off this one day TV-like make over.
Thanks NKBA Puget Sound Chapter for the opportunity to participate in such a worthwhile endeavor. So proud to be a part of such a talented and energetic group of colleagues!
