We were told that the kitchen would be down for two weeks. It has now been four months and the project is still not complete.

, the daughter of the mother/daughter pair who run the business and who does everything except the bookkeeping,

us through the design process, selection of cabinet style and color section. She did a good job with that and we are pleased with the result.
However, she made a mistake on the order of one wall of the base cabinets and they were a combined 6" too long. We told her we were keeping the existing ceramic tile floor, but she was either unaware or did not tell us that the new cabinets would not be as deep as the originals, leaving a wide gap between the tile and the cabinet base - too wide to fill only with the supplied kick plate material and grout.
She re-ordered the correct size cabinets and that put is back over a month, including shipping and the reschedule time for the installers and we had to order addition kick plate material to pad up the kickplate gap. Due to the timing of the ordering, I will end up doing the kick plate work myself and we do not want to delay any further to schedule a finish carpenter to do the work.
Since this error included the base cabinets that are connect to the sink, the granite counter tops could not be measure or installed until the proper base cabinets were in and therefore we were without a sink, doing dishes in the powder room. While

did arrange for a temporary bar sink to be installed after two weeks, it was a huge inconvenience beyond what we had planned for.
After we ordered the appliances including a vent hood power package, I noticed on the bid for the custom cabinet style wooden hood that the maker (different from the cabinet maker) would not guarantee any vent unit other than their own would fit, so I asked

to check to see if it was going to be a problem. If it was, we would cancel the local order and order the one from the hood company.

apparently did not check and when the hood was installed and the appliance installer went to put in the power unit it would not fit. He took the unit with him and said he would speak to

about it.
Meanwhile the tile installer was scheduled to do the black splash. When he arrived to do the job he had to back out because he could not do the tile around the

of the hood without the power unit in place. He said without knowing where the power unit met the tile he could inadvertently lock the power unit in place making it impossible to remove if it needed to be serviced.
We heard nothing from

for almost three weeks when one of

's employees called to install a "floor" in the hood. Evidently, she had ordered the floor part and it was available to install. However, when he arrived he did not have the vent unit.

had not told him it was in her warehouse and not at the job site. This resulted in yet more delay.
We finally have the hood vent unit in place and are waiting for the tile installer to be available.

's two errors have together caused about six weeks delay. Add to that the time lag to reschedule the tradespeople and you have the total delay of three months.
Our view is that she is a good designer, but a terrible project manager. She goes too fast, does not follow up and as a result makes costly mistakes. While she has absorbed the cost of her ordering mistakes, we have been living in a construction zone for four months and expect the project to take an additional two to three weeks.
Do yourself a favor. Go elsewhere for your remodeling project unless you want to be your own general contractor and use her as just another "sub".

This company did a great job on my cabinets. They were very professional & easy to work with. The men that did the work always showed up early in the morning & worked hard all day.

When we bought our new home, one of the first things my husband and I did was have custom storage cabinets constructed and installed on two walls of our garage. We had seen newspaper ads for
Elk Grove Cabinet Makers Provider Name Locked
cabinets prior to the purchase of our home and made a mental note to contact them as soon as possible. They did a good job of designing the cabinets to accommodate our needs. The installation went smoothly and we have been very happy with them. In fact, we even called them back to add another cabinet at a later date. Their service is good and the product quality is excellent.
