Our history began all the way back in 1963, when owner and founder Jerry Feucht established Feucht & DeBoers, a general contracting company. As a general contracting company, Feucht & DeBoers oversaw every aspect of construction process, including building and installing custom cabinetry. It was during these years that Jerry found his love for the craftsmanship of custom cabinet building.
After 30 years as a Feucht & DeBoers, the company split in 1993, as Jerry Feucht shifted his focus to building custom cabinetry. He leased a historic building in Lester, Iowa that was once a parking garage, roller skating rink and dance hall that once hosted historic musician Lawrence Welk, and transformed the space into a custom cabinetry shop. As a result, Feucht's Custom Cabinetry was born!
In 2004, Jerry's son Josh came aboard as a full-time employee, forming the management team that leads the business to this day. Two years later, with the business steadily growing, the Feuchts decided to relocate the business to Larchwood, Iowa, where they built a shop and showroom. Since then, the business has grown to 8 full-time employees, adding multiple offerings to better serve its customers.
Our initial meeting lets the customer speak with our designer regarding the design process, ideas and accessories offered. It is also helpful if we can get information about floor plans, room dimensions, ceiling heights, ideas about what appliances you want and where you want them located, photos of styles and looks you like, and your budget.
If the project is new construction, there are general floor plans that the designer can use to develop the draft drawings. If the project is a remodel, the designer may want to visit the site in order to better understand the full scope of the project.
The designer will develop drawings that best encompass the information gained from the initital meeting and site visit. Once the drawings are completed, Feucht's Custom Cabinetry will then email, mail, or fax these drawings to you to review.
After you review the drafts, you have the opportunity to present us with a list of changes so that the final drawings will be as close of a representation to the finished product as possible. This helps us give you the most accurate estimate that we can provide.
Once the basic design is established, we can figure out how much it will cost. This is a fairly complex process with several variables such as wood species, door styles, countertops, accessories, and hardware. Although you don't need to have everything picked out at this point, the more information you can provide, the more accurate the proposal will be.
Design & Selection
At this point, you will get to finalize and select all the details, including doors styles, drawer styles, finishes (stain color, glazing, and distressing, etc.), hardware (pulls and knobs), countertops (materials, colors, edges), and accessories. We also go on-site to take final measurements and get the final appliance specifications.
Design & Pricing Approval
Once we have the final design and selections, we will include them in the price to reflect any changes made after the initial estimate (see step 5). Everything is finalized with your signature and we move forward with your project.
You will review the revised drawings and proposals to ensure everything looks good. At this point, you will make a 60% down payment (based on the initial proposal) to cover the cost of production. Any add-ons or changes will be billed with the final payment, which is due at delivery and installation.
Production & Delivery
Now it's time for us to get to work! Once the down payment is paid, we will begin creating your new custom cabinets, a process that generally takes around four to six weeks. Once this is finished, we will deliver your beautiful new cabinets to your location, at which time you will be expected to pay the balance.
