THE D.C. AREA is a great place for kitchen remodeling . . . if you have a project the size of, say, the Pentagon. Here's how our conversations with contractors have gone:
- Us: "We're thinking of new tile, new cabinets, new lighting, new countertops, knocking down a wall, maybe even adding on to the house."
Them: "I'm sorry, but we only take big projects."
Us: "Did we mention the Saturn V launchpad?"
Them: "The Saturn V is so Apollo/Skylab-era. Do you want avocado-green appliances and orange-and-brown Formica, too? And, again, we only take big projects."
