WHY HIRE RYAN & WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT


ABOUT ME: My name is Ryan Bruzan. I am a father, husband, full-time custom woodworker and cabinetmaker. I started my home improvement business activities in November 2001 as a handyman. Doing so allowed me the opportunity to peer into and familiarize myself with the many aspects of home-related functions, repairs, and improvements. I have learned where it becomes necessary to draw the line about the the services I provide and when it is necessary to call in another professional tradesperson for certain aspects of the projects I choose to take on. 


VETERAN: I am a U.S. Marine. Through the years I have maintained a strict attention to detail with every project. With every custom cabinetry project I am privileged to complete, my skills and creativity, along with the physical deficiencies and pain, continue to increase. As a result of my experience in service to the Citizens of the United States of America and in service to our Great Country, I have made it my life's goal, in everything I do, to always move forward and advance through a high standard of attention to detail. This practice of attention to detail is also attention to prevention. It has been a wonderful prevention of stagnation. Though, physically, there is always work to be done, so, too, is their life to be lived and shared. 

SERVICE AREAS: Through the years I have narrowed my services to a niche in custom built-in cabinetry in the Louisville, Kentucky and surrounding areas, about a 50 mile radius.

BUDGET: Purchasing custom built-in cabinetry services in like purchasing a house. One of the very first things we are going to talk about is your budget. BE PREPARED. If you do not have a dollar range that you are willing to spend on your project (just like buying a house), there is no way for me to begin to develop the size, scope, construction method and materials for your project. As not one house is the same, not one single custom cabinetry project is the same. This is not a matter of your inexperience with purchasing such services, this is not a matter of your lack of research. This is simply a matter of how much money you have decided that you want to invest in your custom cabinets project and only you can know that. 


DESIGN: After we discuss your budget, we will discuss design. Everything you do to show your determination to have your project completed, by a worthy professional, who serves countless others at the same time, will prepare that professional to be motivated about your project. Just as a professional has one opportunity to make a first impression, so, too, do you, the customer. One of the tools to have in your impressive arsenal is a simple pencil sketch. It doesn't have to be a full-blown architectural print created with CAD software, like the free Sketchup Make by Trimble or AutoCAD or Adobe Illustrator or whatever (all the better if you can provide a CAD plan).


Other helpful items you can send prior to meeting are

  • Web links to other projects you found online, such as Pinterest, Houzz, Google, etc.
  • A pencil sketch (take a picture with your phone if you must
  • Photos of the work area
  • Dimensions, widths, depths, heights, etc. You do not need to know the radius of arcs or any algebraic equations.
  • Type of cabinets you wish to install. Are they wall to wall? Floor to ceiling? How tall is the countertop? How deep are the base cabinets? 
  • Do you want adjustable shelving? 
  • Is this going to be a paint grade project or a stained project?


FABRICATION & MANUFACTURING: We do custom handmade cabinetry projects in and around the Louisville, KY areas and Kentuckiana region. Our workshop in located in Crestwood, KY. The majority of our projects are created in our house, not yours, as much as possible in order to minimize dust and debris as well as the inconvenience of using your location as a full-blown worksite.  

I appreciate every single one of the homeowners who have opened their homes to me and allowed me to present them with my skills and my art. Even homeowners from 10 years ago, the ones who I did the little things home improvements for; I know who you are before you have a chance to say, "you may not remember me."  We've shared a small part of our lives with each other. I am grateful. 


SHIPPING & DELIVERY: We deliver our products locally ourselves.


INSTALLATION: We do our best to respect that your property is being used during installation. We are careful to keep our work areas clean, our dust contained, our tools confined and our trash collected. Your safety is the highest priority. We use our own tools, not yours.


HOW TO GET A RESPONSE FROM RYAN: Communication is one of my strongest points, but not fail safe. This is very important. Very simply, please leave a message, text us, email us, message us on Facebook, use the contact form here or on our Contact Us. All messages are secure and go directly to the owner. Ryan will contact you at his earliest convenience. Because we spend our valuable time working on projects and not answering calls, especially given the nature and convenience of today's communication options. We are reasonably quick to respond, but we authorize and appreciate your "harassment" when necessary. I do my best to keep in touch in a timely manner, but leaving the communication solely up to me is neglect on your part. I suffer the human deficiency of exhaustion and need you to keep in touch with me.

It is an Honor to have served you all. It is an Honor to know that I will continue to do so.

Thank you. Semper Fi.
