Charles Lantz Cabinetry - Where the finest is standard!
Feature Project July '09

Custom kitchen nova scotia

Christian & Beverly Hackshaw have built three houses and most recently, totally renovated their 4th. They knew right from the start they wanted a Charles Lantz kitchen. "Charles was recommended," says Christian. "We looked at his website."

The emergency physician enjoys carpentry and has worked side-by-side with a contractor in building the couple's three previous homes. Most recently, he totally gutted an older home, right to the bare timber frames. Then put it to rights - with the help of specialty contractors including Charles.

"I drew up the design," he says, "and found the appliances. We gave him free rein for the details - it was a partnership. It was nice working with Charles. He gave us exactly what he said he would at exactly the price he said."

Oakland Veterinary Hospital - home to Charles Lantz cabinets

Christian's wife, Beverly is also a doctor - a veterinarian. After checking out veterinary supply outlets, she called on Charles for a reception desk and purpose cabinetry in her hospital. Charles charged less for custom work and installed it more quickly than if she had gone elsewhere.

"The reception area is a small space," she notes, "Charles maximized efficiency - I told him what I wanted, he took some measurements . . . " And she's delighted with the results.

The Charles Lantz Cabinetry team members on this job were builder Richard Hirtle, helpers Dana Tanner, Roy Parsons and Melburne McGinnis. Our CLC painter was Brent Strong, The soap stone was supplied by Nova Tile and Marble Limited.
