George W. Combs, Inc. and Packard Cabinetry recently co-hosted a continuing education presentation here in Huntington for architects and design minded guests bringing together several industry professionals from the tri-state area.  The first presentation provided an overview of the paradigm shift occurring in the design of kitchens in The United States and the generational consumer groups driving these changes.  Focus was given to kitchen storage solutions, seating within the kitchen and the application of new technologies related to functional hardware in kitchen cabinetry and their appeal to today’s consumers.  The kitchen design presentation was then followed with LED lighting solutions providing an overview of hardware and lighting fixtures in cabinet and furniture applications.  Thank you to our co-host Packard Cabinetry and to our sponsors Rutt HandCrafted Cabinetry and Hafele America Co. for a very informative and lively evening.

How do I select the best General Contractor for my project?
Selecting a contractor is the most important task for a homeowner or business owner as they consider and plan a new home or major renovation project. Trust should be the driving factor with experience, workmanship and value being seriously considered. Referrals are important however they should be received with caution and thoroughly vetted. A reputable and experienced contractor will invite you to visit current and completed sites to view the workmanship first hand. Schedule a meeting and be candid with each prospective contractor and architect regarding your expectations, your budget and your timeline so that he/she can properly estimate the quality and progress for your dream home.
