How it all started…
My wife and I were finally able to take our ten year anniversary trip, albeit three years later, to the location of our dreams: Italy. We dropped the kids off at the in-laws and were ready to go. Our experience in Italy was beyond belief. The sites, the history, the culture were everything we imagined and more. We are both really into architecture and loved seeing the intricate detail and craftsmanship put into every square inch of the buildings in that country.
Anyway, after getting back home from our fabulous vacation we got right back into the groove of raising a family, working, and living a great life. About two weeks later we starting talking about how great it would be to do some remodeling of our kitchen cabinets, countertops, etc. We both were inspired by our trip to Italy and were ready to bring that look to our home.
I talked with a builder buddy of mine who and told him what we were thinking. He said that Lowes and Home Depot wouldn’t meet our needs and recommended a place called ASA Builders Supply. He said that is where he buys all of his supplies. He said they have a great selection of shelves, mouldings, doors, and L.J. Smith stairs.
I live in the metro Detroit area and their company is just a few miles away in Walled Lake in nearby Oakland County. My wife and I made the short drive and visited ASA cabinets showroom. When we got there the staff was very friendly, which is something you really don’t find at the big home improvement stores. Steve and Margie were ready and willing to answer all of our questions and were very knowledgeable, which helps because I’m a newbie when it comes to kitchen cabinets.
I told Steve we wanted to remodel out vanities, kitchen cabinets, doors, and countertops. He gave us some great tips on where to start first and recommended we go with Masonite doors and L.J. Smith stair railings.
We started with the kitchen cabinets and that project actually went a lot smoother than I anticipated. The kitchen cabinets were semi-custom designed by one of ASA builders manufactures and they fit perfectly and were just the rich, dark look that we were hoping for. The price was unbelievable too. We did some comparison shopping and found that by taking advantage of ASA builders direct purchasing power we saved hundreds compared to if we would have purchased retail.
After the kitchen was done we finished up remodeling our vanities, got brand new Masonite doors, and new L.J. Smith stairs. We couldn’t be happier with how the project turned out and owe a great big thank you to the folks as ASA Builders Supply!
