When it comes to designing your kitchen, layout is one of the most important decisions you will make. You want to create a space that is functional for your lifestyle. A space that contributes to the flow of your work, rather than restrict it.
Joined The Chervin Family In:
- June 2001
Previous Industry Experience:
- Started at Chervin working in the Kitchen Machining department; from there became a Supervisor in the Hardware department, then worked in Shipping & Receiving for a while before transitioning to Engineering
- I've been managing Engineering since 2017; every day is unique, filled with meetings, phone calls, delegating, and lots of answering questions!
Deanna and I got married in 2008. We have two sons and a daughter, and family means the world to us!
Most Unique Project
My team worked on a sliding bookcase door a while ago - it was challenging to design, but so rewarding for everyone involved in the end!
"Alone we can do little; together we can do so much." - Helen Keller
Current Personal Dream Design:
My favourite wood right now is Rift White Oak. I also enjoy mixing rustic elements into a transitional design; details like x-frame ends on an island or reclaimed wood
Happy this fad is over:
Cathedral-style doors - they can be beautiful, but have to be installed in the right environment and made of the right wood species to feel current
Playing with my kids (building toy trains together, for one!), and tinkering around the house
Hobbies I'd Like To Resurface:
Hockey and baseball
A Saturday morning breakfast of bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns. I'm also a grilled cheese and macaroni expert! :)
Taco salad has been my absolute favourite for many years - it's usually my birthday meal request! I also enjoy a bowl of Raisin Bran just about any time of the day - extra raisins, please.
Justin Would Rather...
For years, our cupboards have been a place of hiding for all the things we do not want our guests to see. Those days are over! With the proper styling, contents, and colours, open shelving can not only be a statement maker in your most used space, but it can also be functional.
