I love it when a project really comes together! It starts with a great customer, in this case, a couple who first came to me over 15 years ago for their first big screen TV. I really appreciate their loyalty, and they continue to come back to me when they are in need of anything new.
Next, throw in an inspired design, and finally, team up with a great cabinet maker to pull off a stunning final result.
After I came up with the conceptual design, I contacted 3 cabinet makers that I have worked with before, to give us quotes.
The client finally decided on Carey’s Custom Woodworking, and when owner Carey Hawes walked into the house to meet the customer, he recognized that his Father had built the original cabinets some 20 years ago! It was an amazing coincidence, or providence, depending on how you look at it.
Although Carey’s quote was not the lowest, the client wisely commented to me that “you get what you pay for”. In this case she could not have been more correct.
Some of our goals with this design were to be able to hide the components, subwoofer and center speaker, install a larger TV that would be higher in the cabinet to allow it to be seen from the Dining Room and Kitchen, and update the whole system to High Definition.
Well, mission accomplished! The clients are very pleased with the results. This whole project underscores the reasons why we believe Evolved Home is a great choice to help you conquer your next AV makeover. We are experienced and design oriented, we have a great network of other professionals we bring in to complete the other aspects of the project, and we have some of the best install technicians in the Portland Metro Area. This is a result you just can’t get from a “Big Box” store.
