Project Description – We took the display to three shows, so I had to design and build it to be taken apart and secured in a trailer as quickly as possible. It still took 4 hours each to set up and tear down. It was built the same way I build a normal kitchen, so each component was separate, but fit into a wall I constructed with electric in it. We have permanently installed it in a showroom now, so that wall is not there anymore. We also left out the flooring.
Making sure everything fit together perfectly again after tearing down was difficult. We also had to be sure it didn’t get damaged in transport through mountain passes in the trailer. It was tricky to make the flooring fit perfectly each time also, when we didn’t have control over the flooring at the home shows.
Unusual Aspects – We think the angles of the cabinets really get people’s attention. The corner drawers and custom Lazy Susans also grab people as they walk by. We tend to have the most traffic because crowds draw attention. When someone walks by and sees the corner drawers opened, they immediately do a double take and come into the booth. Again and again, we hear, “I didn’t know I could have a kitchen with such interesting shapes and angles.” They also liked the mixture of species and colors together.
Why I like the CMA – We are so happy to have become members of CMA. We are hoping to begin attending trainings and other events in the next couple years. Winning the award last year gave us wonderful publicity. We even got a front page story and photos on the business section of one of the big Sunday papers in Wyoming because of your press release. Thank you so much!
