Kitchen with two islands
Analysis: Comparable in price range tof the beaded inset kitchen, this project’s apparently more straightforward construction garnered more competitive pricing. The original Canadian bidder’s price of $29,512 (adjusted to U.S. dollars) shows up well below the average price of $40,573. Lower overhead and lower shop rates almost always result in lower total pricing regardless of what the same project might earn from shops with higher rates.
