Best Time of the Year for a Kitchen RemodelBy / December 26, 2018 February 22, 2023
Choosing the perfect time for a kitchen remodel can be stressful. But with a few tips you will be on your way to a brand-new kitchen in no time.
Best Time for a Kitchen Remodel
Deciding the correct time to remodel your kitchen shouldn’t be based on what worked best for others. Every process is different depending on the client. Take a look at what describes your situation.

Remodeling in the Summer
It seems the summer is when our clients tend to remodel their kitchen the most. Below are the most common reasons why:
- Able to cook elsewhere while kitchen is under construction
- Cook on the grill/eat outside on deck or table
- Kitchen remodel will be completed before the holidays
- Plan a summer vacation around the remodel
- Come home to a brand-new kitchen
- Ability to open windows to let any dust/odors outside
- Longer days – natural lighting
- More time to work on the project/completed faster
Since clients remodel the most during the summer it causes the summer months to be busier. This can result in a higher cost or the chance your project will not be completed at the preferred time.

Remodeling in the Winter
Clients typically stay away from home remodels during the winter months due to upcoming holidays. Below are the reasons why it can be a good idea for a kitchen remodel in the winter:
- During contractors’ slow season
- Availability to get your remodel scheduled faster
- Possibility of your kitchen being under construction during the holidays
- If your traveling during the holidays you can avoid the construction
- Get the remodel finished before the busy season where price increases take place
Deciding on whether summer or winter is the right time for you comes down to your flexibility, availability and when you would like the project completed. Though the summer may be the perfect time for others, it may not be the right time for you. Plan your kitchen remodel from start to finish to ensure a smooth and stress-free process.

Kountry Kraft Garage – Where the Dream Became a RealityBy / December 12, 2018 December 12, 2018
For many Made in America companies, a garage is where their dream became a reality. The path that led to the launch of Disney, Google, Apple and Kountry Kraft is an inspiring journey.
How the Dream Became a Reality
Many wide known companies such as, Disney, Google and Apple started out in a garage as well. For some, there was a specific item that sparked their inspiration to start creating what they loved. Others, they grew up knowing what they always wanted to do, and the garage was their starting point.
Walt Disney shifted his interested from cartooning to becoming an animator when he received a camera. With this camera he captured his first animation called “Alice’s Wonderland”. This garage in Kansas City, Missouri was where Walt did all the editing on this project and how Disney came to life.
Larry Page and Sergey Brin were working on a project for Stanford University on how to develop a search engine. This project turned into a success, so they rented a garage in Menlo Park, California and began developing what would become Google.
Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs raised money to complete their first computer design called “Apple I”. They assembled the circuit board in Steve Jobs’ garage located in Silicon Valley, California. This garage is not labeled as a historical site.
Kountry Kraft, Inc.
Dale, Dee, Jere and Elvin Jr. in Front of Kountry Kraft 1959
Kountry Kraft started when Helen Hurst bought her husband Elvin a brand-new Sears Craftsman Table Saw. This saw allowed Elvin to create cabinetry and furniture for his family and friends. When the demand for his creations grew, the family decided to launch Kountry Kraft in 1959. They started out in the family garage, located in Newmanstown, Pennsylvania where their dream became a reality. Over the years Kountry Kraft grew rapidly and expanded to a 96,000 square foot facility.
If you visit Kountry Kraft, you actually walk through the door that is featured above. We expanded off the original garage to keep the history alive. You can also view the original Sears Craftsman Table Saw in person at our main showroom in Newmanstown, PA!
