You've been thinking about installing a kitchen for a long time. But how does it all come about? What are the steps?
In this section we will share what we need from you to help you design your project.
1. Bring Your Dreams and Plans
Let's talk about our first visit. It's okay with us if you schedule a visit to your site, make an office visit, send an email or even send a text. In order for us to give you an initial quote, we will need a basic project description including approximate measurements.
We want your ideas in whatever form they may come. Do you have articles, photos or sketches? We want to see them all. Even after our initial session together, we want to think together in this planning stage of your project's development.

2. Preliminary Drawings
We build our cabinets with computer design software. As we receive your ideas we create drawings with two dimensional and three dimensional views of your project. That way you can see how your cabinets will look and you can easily make changes while it is still in the design process. Once we have your basic project information we need approximately a week to produce project drawings.
3. Preliminary Estimates
After we have your ideas and dimensions we can give you an estimate of your project. We price your cabinets according to the square footage of the cabinet face. Then we add the cost of the functional and design accessories, such as drawers, pullouts, special moldings etc. We don't give you a bundle price, but rather give you an itemized breakdown. That way you can help us arrive at the combination of accessories that matches your budget.
4. Finalize the Contract
You will want some time to think things through. You now have an idea of what your project will cost. As you narrow down your ideas into actual decisions, we will meet with you as often as necessary to make final changes. Now we will take final measurements and confirm final changes to the drawings. Next we create an invoice and receive a fifty percent deposit in order to begin construction.
We generally project six to eight weeks for cabinet construction and installation.
