Custom built-ins & cabinet installation

Click on our project pictures below for a larger view.
You can select from those design elements or customize to your individual style preference.
Built-in cabinets from our local woodworking shop. All installations are by a master carpenter.


These cabinets are built with maple not particle board and typically use a paint grade poplar face frame.
Like the old craftsman built-in cabinets they have shaker style doors from the period that are hand made in our woodworking shop.
The design style to be historically correct uses a brush on paint finish so we prime them then they are painted in place.

Custom Estimate & Design
For custom work I do a site visit and measure then can usually give you a basic idea of the estimated cost.
I can use design elements from the custom examples above or work from pictures you provide.
We'll mix and match so we get the perfect design for your home. They are typically shop built, primed installed then painted.
They can also be pre-finished by a finishing shop then installed depending on the design.

Stock Estimate & Design
If it is an entire kitchen or bath remodel see the CONSTRUCTION page.
For stock cabinet installations and re-builds for farmers sinks, refridgerator surrounds etc. then the order would be placed already.
We would then look over the layout plan see what would need to be done or ordered and get you an estimate.
For crown installs or smaller custom re-configurations the cabinets would typically be installed.
