Renovating a home by adding custom woodworking and cabinets
I bought my first house in the Salt Lake City area in Utah last summer and knew right away I had some issues that I would need help fixing. I wanted to be able to take this from “a house” to “my home.” I would need some custom work done because most of what I wanted was tweaking existing cabinets and structures or fitting new storage into odd fitting places.
Woodworking and Custom Cabinetry Wishlist
- A new, wood mantle with a mid-tone stain that would be true to the house being built in the 1950s.
- A custom built closet to add storage and a bit of architectural interest with clean lines in the basement bedroom.
- Custom, and attractive storage for both of the bathrooms.
Rearranging the kitchen cabinets and resizing kitchen drawers to make room for a dishwasher (I was OVER washing dishes by hand.)
Looking for cabinetry recommendations in Utah
I asked my family and friends in the Utah County and Salt Lake County areas for woodworking or cabinet making recommendations. I wanted to find someone reliable and skilled to hire for these projects. Multiple friends and family members had used Larry for their homes and fully recommended that I reach out to him and I'm so happy I did.
Woodworking and Custom Cabinetry Process
Larry Johnson was able to help me with all the items on my wishlist and I love how it all turned out. He came over, measured the house and listened to my concerns. He then went back to his workshop and drew up some designs for me to approve. Once the designs were approved I gave him a deposit and he went off to build his beautiful designs, which he then came back and installed.
I absolutely love how it all turned out and I would absolutely use Larry for any of my woodworking or cabinetry needs again.
