What’s better than having a handsome husband who can also double as a handyman? An article from HamptonRoads.com shares the story of how the “Hottest Dad in America” redid his family's kitchen—successfully.
He’s a really hardworking man, and he doesn’t stop when he gets home – he’s always building something for us or for the kids,” Marley Ungaro, a commercial artist, wrote for the contest.
The latest “something” is a renovated kitchen in the 1947 colonial that the couple share with their children – daughter Langley, 15, and son Grey, 11 – and the family’s two bull terriers in Portsmouth’s Churchland section.
The Ungaros completed the project last year in two months’ worth of weekends.
“I’m the designer, and Andrew does most of the building,” Marley said. “I help out some, but he gets it done every time.”
Andrew, in turn, credits Marley with ferreting out good deals, finding free materials for projects, thinking creatively and pinching pennies to get the most for their money.
While this is indeed an inspiring story, not everyone can perform kitchen remodeling on their own like this amazing couple did. Not all homeowners have the skills and tools to complete such a demanding project—not to mention two months' worth of weekends to spare.
There are also serious safety risks to consider if you aren’t trained in construction or if you’re using potentially harmful chemicals. If you want to give your kitchen a fresh look without the hassle and without the danger, it's better to call a kitchen remodeling professional to ensure the fast and safe completion of a high-quality improvement project.

Our project is complete and we are extremely pleased with the outcome. The craftsmanship is excellent and the design has proven to transform our home's interior remarkably.
We wanted to improve our deck for several years and it finally got to the point where it needed to be replaced due to age. We didn’t want to merely reuse the current footprint since the proportions of upper level, attached to the house, and lower level, in the yard extending toward the pond, were not what we would have built had we been the original owners.
