The process of buying custom made Cabinets that is specifically designed to fit your needs and preferences can be very exciting. A better understanding of this process will help you to achieve exactly what you imagine in your new piece with the least amount of effort.
The following section will provide you with a basic set of guidelines for what to expect from your initial visit with us through the completion and delivery of your cabinets. If you have any questions after reading this, just e-mail us or call. We look forward to speaking with you.
An initial consultation, in your home or at our office, is usually the first step. At this time, the general design and function of each cabinet may be discussed. It is a good idea to collect a folder of designs you like. A picture is worth a thousand words. Tear out any magazine pages that catch your eye, whether it is a color, a style, a table leg, a type of wood, etc. These photos will help us better understand what appeals to you.
Once the design concept is agreed upon a conceptual drawing will be made. When the conceptual design is approved, we will present a price and a contract document.
The first stage of production begins with shop drawings and sample preparation. When the shop drawings and samples receive your signed approval, we can enter the project into production.
It typically take about 5 to 10 days to construct cabinets for a whole house.
Our payment terms are fifty percent at the time the contract is signed. Final payment is due at delivery and installation.
