Builder’s Grade

Also known as stock cabinetry, builder’s grade cabinets come in a full range of sizes and are mass-produced. This mass production leverages economies of scale to provide a low price-point but is limited to the most popular door and finish choices. While there is usually little to no customization available on builder’s grade, we’ve partnered with companies that provide the best quality and most customization available.

Wolf Classic Line

Select products feature soft-close hinges, dovetail drawers and other premium features typically reserved for more expensive cabinetry.

River Run

All-wood construction with dovetail drawers, fully-extendable slides, soft-close hinges, and other features typically found on more premium lines


This category of cabinetry offers a broad selection of finishes, wood species, and styles. Cabinets are constructed leveraging assembly line processes with the integration of modifications and optional add-ons like drawer configurations, moldings, and accessories. Even with added levels of customization, turnaround times can still be achieved in about a month.

As always, we’ve partnered with companies that offer both exceptional quality, value, and a lifetime warranty.

Quality Countertops

Quality countertops begin with excellent materials. Here are some of the brands we trust to deliver our customers with durable, strikingly beautiful countertops.


Carolyn Andrews

Carolyn is a driven individual who understands the complexities of kitchen and bath designs but takes a simple way of looking at them. One of the things that makes her an excellent designer is she understands the construction process. She understands the construction of both the space being designed and the actual construction of the cabinet. This knowledge makes it possible to design beautiful spaces practically.

Her previous experience working as contractor sales rep and estimator gives her insight into how builders plan their projects. This perspective makes for a smooth process from the initial design to the final installation. Carolyn is a life-long learner that gets excited about new ideas with our clients.

Carolyn has served on the board for the HBAGTA since 2013 and has been a board member for the NKBA Northern Michigan Chapter since 2013.

Among Carolyn’s Awards:

  • 2014 – Recipient of NKBA’s 30 under 30
  • 2014- Named by Professional Remodeler magazine as 40 under 40
  • President of the Professional Women in Building HBAGTA 2016 & 2017.
  • NKBA Northern Michigan Chapter President 2018-2019
