I am trying to get some help on an installation of Tru-wood Cabinets of Ashland AL.

I had Cabinet Factory Outlet Daytona Beach, FL (CFO) install new cabinets in my kitchen and was very disappointed in their work and the cabinets. The cost was approximately $5000. I can't speak for other installations that CFO has done elsewhere, but I am totally unhappy with the workmanship and the cabinets installed here.

For instance: base cabinets were not leveled; cabinet doors show open joints; painted finishes were uneven; door finish under the paint was not smooth in many cases; some doors were warped; some doors show the beginning of cracking; caulk residue was present on the cabinet finish at the few places where they caulked; paint mismatch on spliced ceiling molding; and others.

The job was to be completed in Dec., 2013, but discrepancies are still not corrected, Nov. 2014.

It took six months to get a Tru-Wood, Asland, AL factory rep. (Mr. Greg Fane) here. I got a sinking feeling when the the Mr. Fane implied that I should accept that the factory can only produce imperfectly finished products. He mentioned a five foot rule: if you can't see it from five feet away, it is not a problem in Tru-wood's eyes. Mr. Fane said he would contact CFO with the problems he conceded. CFO said the Mr. Fane never contacted them so we are now in limbo because the Mr. Fane does not return calls and CFO has not initiated any contact in the past month or longer.

Anyone can mess up, but the seeming inability and/or desire to correct the problem is annoying and very frustrating.

At our house, my son's room doubles as the guest room. My in-laws visit several times a year and my oldest gives up his bedroom and bathroom for his grandparents. This year we have lots of company coming for the holidays, so all of the kids are giving up their bedrooms. All the cousins will be camping out in the family room, and all of the adults will have their own bedroom. I really like the idea of trundle beds though. It would be nice to have some extra beds for all of the kiddos. Too bad it won't happen this year.

I've used the screen idea when a friend came to stay and she appreciated the sense of privacy it gave her as she bedded down on the living room couch.

As someone who applied American Clay to almost all of our walls, I was blown away by the beauty of the ombre walls and the incredible skill it took to achieve the effect. There were so many similarly gorgeous details throughout the home. Beautifully done.
