Your Design
Once you engage the services of Michael for your design he will come to your home to measure your renovation area or in the case of a new home, work from your blueprint drawings.  The initial design is presented as a detailed floor plan accompanied by three dimensional views so you can truly imagine the cabinet layout.  It is just as important to consider the function of your design as it is to have your cabinetry looking great, Michael asks his clients to carefully consider what they plan to store in each cabinet to make sure the final plan meets your needs.  With a wealth of options available to maximize easy access for things such as pans, spices, wine, garbage and tupperware you can count on Michael to walk you this very important process.

New Home Service
When the design has been completed to your satisfaction, Michael will carry out a site measure of the property once it has been framed and mark out the cabinet positions so your plumber, electrician and mechanical trades can install their rough-ins accurately.  Having your designer complete the site measure is vital to ensure the cabinetry will fit as designed and he is also available to discuss any particular special arrangements or questions with the site tradesmen.  Michael also prepares and orders your cabinets to maintain continuity of service.Full Renovation Service
For most renovations the actual site dimensions are established at the beginning of the process.  You will be given a provisional start date for your renovation as soon you engage Michael's services and once the design is agreed the tradesmen will visit your home to view the work to be carried out and discuss in detail with you the scope of work.   This is the perfect opportunity to update your lighting, add a vac-pan to your vacuflow system or run a gas line to the outside barbecue.  All the trades will be scheduled and you will be given a detailed calender of events so you know what is happening and when to help you plan your life around the renovation.Supply & Installation of Cabinets for Your Own Renovation
