Step 1: Schedule an Appointment

 Take our online Get Started quiz so we understand your project needs. Our scheduler will contact you to gather additional information. As a starting point, we will need floorplans, a preliminary budget, appliance selection(s), and inspiration photos.

What to Expect

  • High Country Cabinets creates a black-and-white design based on architectural plans in 14 –20 business days.


  • ​We present the design (V1) during the initial consultation, and the client makes functional decisions and chooses cabinetry finish and door styles.


  • Drawings and proposal(s) are sent after the initial consultation. This is a (V2) version two design.


  • After version two (V2) design fees will be charged. It is preferable that version three (V3) is rendered and priced after a field measure. More versions can be created at a $50 per hour design fee.


  • Once the presentation and proposal have been signed/approved, we visit the job site and designate the areas for plumbing centers, islands, etc. Final/approved dimensional drawings are sent to the project managers.


  • Cabinetry is ordered upon completion of the final measure and the 50% invoice is issued. Ideally, we would receive the cabinets 2-3 weeks before they are needed.


  • We schedule installation with the project manager once the cabinets are received.


  • We do a walkthrough after the cabinets are installed to create a punch list.


  • Our installer returns to install toe kicks, handle punch items, adjust doors, and add hardware. Please note: Once you have signed your approved presentation and proposal, any changes made to the signed design will result in a $250 change order, plus materials and labor.

Are you a general contractor? A designer or affiliated with a design firm? Are you building commercial properties or multi-unit residential housing?

Those in the Trade:


Cabinetry Lead Times: 

Our cabinetry lines are furniture grade with soft close doors/drawers and professionally designed to suit your space(s). In an effort to be transparent with new job inquiries, the average lead time for these vendors is variable and can range between 8 to 15 weeks (depending on the manufacturer, wood, and chosen finish). These timelines begin from the time of final design approval. 

Due to the current supply chain challenges, this time frame is subject to change without advanced notice.
