Creative, quality work at a reasonable price.  We expect to pay for quality, but dealing with a professional who is so eager to please, willing to think outside the box, and accomodate change, is priceless.  Dave walked us through the entire process, offered his opinion when needed, and followed through on the details even after we paid him in full.  He is a trustworthy and extremely talented man.  We are looking forward to having him back for more projects in the years to come.

Dave Hulthen designed and built our kitchen cabinets.  We provided Dave with a tentative layout of where we wanted cabinets as well as some photos of possible cabinet designs.  From this minimal input Dave designed and built our kitchen cabinets to a level that far exceeded our expectations.
As a result of our special needs, Dave built cabinets that varied from 24″ to 22″ base cabinets to 18″, 16″, 12″, and 10″ for uppers.  The result was an extremely high degree of space utilization, while still maintaining appropriate dimensional relationships.  From the options suggested by Dave, we chose  cabinet styles, a stained matt finish, one of a kind crown moldings, as well as an island that solved our unique needs in a very beautiful way.  Dave was always available when needed, but I was particularly impressed with Dave’s ability to  listen and convert our conversations into the kitchen of our dreams. Many of our guests are so impressed with our kitchen.

Not ever having built a home before [let alone a custom-built home!], Dave was a huge part in the making of the amazing, unique home we now have the blessing to live in!!  He is an extremely good listener and can discern and envision designs and ideas that complete- and even exceed- your needs and expectations!! Dave was helpful every step of the way and even encouraged us to call him with other ‘consultation’ questions!! He has a good eye for design, is creative, innovative, confident and loves a challenge!!  We love that he was able to incorporate many vintage family items to make our cabinets, vanities and furniture!    Best of all, he made the whole process a fun and enjoyable process! Our friends and family are just in awe of the quality and design of our unique home!  THANK YOU, Dave, for your help and being so available and easy to work with!

We were blessed to have Dave design, build and install all of our cabinetry in our new home. His creation was a wonderful synthesis between our vision and his expertise. The result, Fabulous! While not inexpensive, the quality and craftsmanship far outweigh anything purchased commercially. Do not hesitate to explore this option..the experience will be well worth it.
