I've had the pleasure of working with Alan Alhades for the past ten
years on a number of different projects in both my business and my
home. Alan is a consummate professional, consistently delivering the
best quality product, and almost always before the time he had
promised to have it ready, but always on time.

Alan  is incredibly resourceful and has helped me modify the design of
several cabinets and counters to make them easier (and less
expensive!) to build while enhancing their functionality. A true
craftsman  who takes great pride in his work, Alan communicates  well
and  is great fun to work with.

Please don't hesitate to contact  me if I may answer any questions
about Alan or if you'd like  to see examples  of his work.

Dear Alan,

Nancy & I would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the fabulous cabinets you built and installed in our new home.  As you are aware, this was a big job with 367 drawers and countless doors on cabinets galore. I was very active in the design and construction of the home and by being on the job nearly every day I was able to judge the difference between sub-contractors.  Your work was first class, delivered ahead of schedule and installed to perfection.  Your willingness to fix the mistakes of others as a matter of course, enabling the cabinet installation to move forward without delay way not overlooked by everyone on the job. Your attention to detail during the construction drawing phase, cabinet approval phase as well as the fabrication phase made for a trouble free installation. In the month we have lived in our new home we have had many visitors all of whom have commented on the cabinets and their quality. Once again, we appreciate your work and are pleased that we have made a good friend as well!
