Customized For You.
Customized Consult & Measure
Our consultative approach focuses on listening to the needs and dreams of every family and understanding want they want their kitchen to do, feel and look like.
In-person Design Review
After we prepare the initial design renderings, we meet at our Canby OR, design studios. We review your customized design, printed renderings, projected costs and timeline.
A meeting in your kitchen with our construction manager. We chat about what to expect in the construction process and details to create a on-time and on-budget delivery.
We handhold you through product selection so you are not overwhelmed. We guide you through a selection that meets your design preferences with an eye on your budget.
Proactive and timely communication while our team works in your kitchen. It also helps that Laurel’s all-star crew looks and smells better than most others!
The best day of the whole process is the day we get to turn over the keys to their brand new beautiful kitchen. The excitement we see on our clients’ faces is (almost) payment enough.
Customer Experience Our Customers Love Us
“Highly recommend the SheBuilds team!”
SheBuilds Kitchens just finished our kitchen and we couldn't be happier! Knowledgeable, professional, great with communication and I love my new kitchen. Laurel listened to what I wanted and guided (without being pushy) to the choices we envisioned. She suggested we might be able to sell our previous cabinets, which we did, saving us money and energy.
