Ken, and his work, is outstanding, indeed.
As an architect myself, I know what to look for in a craftsman. First is the willingness to LISTEN! to what the client wants. Next is care and attention to detail that comes from a sincere, innate desire to DO THINGS RIGHT! We knew we wanted something special for our 1900's-era home and found Ken on Thumbtack. He replied right away and quickly set up an appointment, which is another clue to more of his great qualities: TIMELINESS and ENTHUSIASM! After describing to Ken what we wanted, using sketches, magazines, internet pics and hand waving, he created exactly what we wanted. It was not the "modern" way of cabinet-making, but more of a historical style; Ken had to use CREATIVITY! in order to give the look we wanted. I was perhaps most impressed at install, however. The old kitchen floor, walls and ceiling long ago stopped being at right angles to one another...as Ken set and leveled the cabinets and installed the doors, I could see how much HE CARES. It was a beautiful thing. The kitchen cabinets are the high point of our home tour...can't wait to call him back for bookshelves and bath cabinets!
