Beautiful, functional and more space than before!

Charles Lantz Cabinetry Feature Project October '13

"I am in love with my kitchen. I love to cook. I love my home.
[Charles] is amazing - awesome to work with!"

- Shirley MacLean

Shirley MacLean is quick to admit she was sceptical. She couldn't imagine how in the world Charles Lantz Cabinetry could build a new, beautiful kitchen with more space, but that is exactly what they did!

Their 22 year-old-home's original oak kitchen was built by a contractor, without "much thought," says her husband Bill MacLean. CLC swapped the peninsula for an island. They moved the dishwasher by the sink and the microwave above the stove.

The MacLeans knew one thing for sure, they were going with a dark kitchen. All that changed moments after walking in to the CLC cabinetry shop where a white kitchen stood ready for delivery and install. One look and they were both converted.

Shirley was also insistent on keeping the China cabinet in the kitchen. Happily, Bill and Charles talked her out of that idea. "I'm so glad," she says smiling. "I am in love with my kitchen. I love to cook. I love my home. [Charles] is amazing - awesome to work with."

CLC also did matching cabinetry in the laundry and powder rooms.

CLC crew:

  • The builder was Kyle Vienotte with assistance by Jessem Wamback, Cody Slauenwhite, Winston Wagner and Michael Drew.
  • The painting was performed by Jeff Crouse and Cody Slaunewhite.


  • The owner, Bill MacLean, did much of the carpentry construction part of the reno.
  • The appliances were purchased by Calvin's TV Sales & Service Ltd. of Marriot's Cove

Charles Lantz comments:
"This is a beautiful painted, raised panel kitchen, the color was Barely Beige, the counter top was a Formica Solid surface with an intergrated double sink. It was a great pleasure to work with Shirley and Bill Maclean, Thank you from the CLC crew!"
Yours truly, Charles Lantz
