From the Designers Bob and Kathy:

My wife Kathy and I have operated a home personalizing business in South Florida for almost 40 years and are now in the process of retiring.  She’s waited 25 years for her “House Captains kitchen” but fortunately we’ve been too busy to spare the people to take care of our own needs.  It’s been such fun showing off the new maple counter tops and watching people feel and “pet” the incredibly smooth finish of our Grothouse tops.    We are absolutely thrilled with the superb quality of the products you delivered to us.

I think a great selling point for custom wood countertops is that any kind of stone or marble backsplash can be used without clashing with granite.


Designer Tips: Reminder to double check the actual sink to tailor the opening rather that use the manufacturer supplied dwg file.  It’s perfect!!
