I COULD NOT BE HAPPIERI hired Distinctive Millworks to fabricate custom cabinets for a kitchen (shown on their Houzz page as Chapel Hill kitchen). I was specific in many ways about what I wanted, and Timothy was great in working with those design constraints and also in helping to fill in the missing details. I had a specific time frame for this project, and they made it happen as promised. I could not be happier with the quality custom cabinetry I received, or in the process of working with Timothy
Project PortfolioTO SAY WE ARE IMPRESSED WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT OF EPIC PROPORTIONS!To say we are impressed with Tim’s work would be an understatement of epic proportions! We had Tim come in after our house was built to provide further custom trim work to it. He helped take it from being a beautiful home to being a true showpiece that is absolutely stunning. In fact, we were so pleased with how it turned out that we abandoned some of our plans to install wallpaper inside some of the wall frames he did for us just so that the wallpaper wouldn’t detract from the trim itself. Not only did Tim help guide us in what would look best for a given area, but he helped us with material selection to avoid having to tear out the crown, base cap, and/or base boards, which we almost had to do in order to make the post-construction trim look like it had been installed at the same time as the rest. The particularly impressive part was that, even though he constructed the trim frames from raw materials, it was done with such expert craftsmanship that the corners aligned seamlessly–to the point they didn’t need any caulking. It was not only amazing to see that level of skill, but it also really helped make the end product that much better. Tim worked within our very tight timeline, provided a competitive quote, and delivered excellent work. You can’t ask for much more than that!
Project Portfolio SKILL FOR HIS AGETimothy from Distinctive Millworks has skill for his age. When my wife and I decided to have a built-in bookcase installed, Timothy came to our house, listened to what we wanted, gave his advice, showed us some pictures of previous work for comparison, gave us a price, and a week later brought to life the exact vision of what we were expecting. He matched the existing trim and baseboards perfectly. Timothy had a mentor that he quoted as saying, “Caulk is a bad excuse for lousy carpentry.” He has brought this motto into this business where he strives to make every piece of wood look good and fit properly.
Project Portfolio GORGEOUS KITCHEN UPDATEDistinctive Millworks performed a gorgeous update of our kitchen. The work was completed in a timely fashion and we really appreciated their calm and respectful approach as well as their cleanliness. We could not be happier with the quality and appearance of our new kitchen!Project Portfolio
VERY HAPPY WITH THE CRAFTMANSHIPI had the whole kitchen redone, with cabinets from scratch. Timothy was very easy to work with. Flexible and good design ideas and solutions. It takes a little longer, but it’s all quality work. Never saw them take short-cuts, everything was “done right”. I’m very happy with the craftsmanship. They also built custom bathroom vanities for me, using sinks that I provided. Cabinets were designed around the space and the existing sinks. All high quality work and looking sharp.Project Portfolio
