This modern, airy cottage embraces simplicity with white oak cabinetry and millwork to create a warm, inviting atmosphere.
Over the years, Chervin’s commitment to creating cabinetry and furniture that is both aesthetically pleasing and reliable never wavered. We strive to always “do to others as we would have them do to us” (Matthew 7:12), which means exercising care, integrity, and good stewardship in every aspect of our company. It’s our Golden Rule of Service, and it’s what sets us apart and holds us together.
Chervin is Born
Kevin Bauman, a young and ambitious entrepreneur, along with his wife, Cheryl, launches his own custom cabinetry company out of a 1,200 square foot shop, putting to work a long-time interest and skill. The company builds anything and everything people need made out of wood, and is named after a blending of Kevin’s and Cheryl’s names – Chervin Custom Woodworks.
