3. INITIAL DESIGN + BUDGET

If your architect or builder has detailed drawings, we will provide an initial estimate free of charge. If you are starting from scratch, we will visit your home, take accurate measurements and create a 3-D rendering of the proposed design. For this, we require a nominal design retainer that is credited toward the project when the order is placed.


We can help guide choices with color palette, countertops, backsplash, flooring, hardware, etc. Our design consultation service is available for an additional hourly rate. Let us know what help you may need, and we’ll provide you with an estimated cost of services.

4. FINAL TOUCHES

When you are ready to proceed with the order, we work as a team to finalize the finish options and trim details. We will need all the appliance selections at this time. We also recommend choosing stone and tile options at this time. 


We supply a plan which includes; scaled and dimensioned elevations and floor plans, fittings and notations of appliance sizes and model numbers, specific installation notes, and countertop layout. These plans will help maintain open and clear communication between all members working on your project.

Going Over Plans

5. WHAT NOW?

As the cabinetry being built is unique and designed specifically for your space, we request a 50% deposit to begin production (minus the design fee and 10% deposit). We will reconfirm the lead time and stay in contact with you to organize the delivery. The remaining balance is due before delivery.
