“Tom at Modern Millwork is very knowledgable about his products and design of cabinets for various areas of the house.  Right from the start we were treated to expert advice, prompt and efficient service…”

(cont’d from home page) “…The finished product is high quality workmanship. On time, on budget and what we ordered. What more can you ask for?  We would recommend Modern Millwork very highly.”

“Since we had designed our own Napa-style, contemporary home we were looking for Modern Millwork to execute a specific brief but use their years of experience to enhance our vision inside.  They totally exceeded our expectations.  From sourcing just the right wood for the cabinetry throughout to match our Danish furniture (the first European white oak kitchen in their 40+years in business), to reflecting our simple style in the design of the cabinetry, they went the extra mile to create our dream home.

After a year living here, it’s hard to say what we like best.   For me, it has to be the open display unit that forms the wall of the Great Room – visitors come in the front door and look through our treasures to take in the ‘wow’ view of the Giants Head across the lake. For Dave it’s his wine area, where the white oak cabinetry is custom built around his wine fridge, houses the cocktail cabinet and displays his collection of wine glasses above a wine serving bar.

We also believe that Modern Millwork excels in the thought they put into functional details that make life in a home so much better.  The kitchen is a cook’s delight: from the hidden baking tray and huge spice compartments next to the range, to the actual space plan so that one person can cook and another clear up without sharing the same space; and the beautiful island unit is the social hub of any occasion.  In the den they stained the oak to match our European cherrywood desk and fitted it out a wall unit to show our books but hide our oversize photo albums and files.  In the mud room the custom-built seat and coat hanging is perfect for all those winter boots and jackets, while the counter over the washer and dryer with its Corian detailing, not only looks beautiful but makes it easy to sort and fold the wash.

Modern Millwork really helped us when a contractor let us down. They suggested they build us beautiful window sills in solid European oak for our 10” ICF walls throughout the house, that set off the Innotech medium oak, tilt and turn windows beautifully.

From design to installation the Modern Millwork staff were exceptionally skilled and helpful, we cannot recommend them too highly.”

Thank you Tom for doing a terrific job on our office.  It was great to have the work done quickly and efficiently without any stress.  Your installers did a great job as well.

Thanks again.

I have had the pleasure of working with Tom and his crew at Modern Millwork many times over the years.  As a commercial interior design consultant, I was always most pleased when the millwork package of any project I worked on went to Modern Millwork.  I was confident in their ability to “do it right” in terms of correct interpretation of my drawings, good workmanship and timely installation.  As a homeowner having recently undergone a new construction project involving our residence as well as three suites, I contracted Modern Millwork for all our millwork which was considerable (4 kitchens, 7 bathrooms, vanities in 2 childrens’ bedrooms, laundry cabinet and entry area cabinet).  On all counts the experience was excellent – good communication, timely service, first-rate workmanship and competitive price.  I would not hesitate to recommend Modern Millwork to anyone for any millwork project, be it residential or commercial.

Modern Millwork designed, built, and installed our kitchen last fall. The whole team was a pleasure to work with. Tom was very receptive to the ideas we already had and had lots of helpful suggestions to steer us in the right direction to end up with our dream kitchen. The cabinet installers were very professional and we were especially appreciative of the detail and time they put into their work to make everything fit perfectly in the space. We are extremely happy with the end result and love showing off our new kitchen!

I’ve dealt with Modern Millwork for 20 plus years as a project supervisor and now as a business owner/operator. They have supplied me with a top of the line product whether it was a million dollar home or a commercial business or renovation . They are on time and very professional with their installs. From the beginning with Charlie and next generation Tom , it’s the old school new school blend that keeps me coming back.
