testimonials and FAQS



Nicole & Gerald W

Nicholas and Julie build custom cabinets for our kitchen,  bath and also our bathroom barn door frame. They precisely listened to our needs, and as a result their work was excellent. They timely delivered exactly what we asked for with precision, accuracy and friendliness. I would recommend defined details for any custom project.

As a designer I've worked with many contractors, creative  minds and builders. Nicholas is among my very favorites! He and his wife Julie came in to estimate a number of projects in our house, including built-ins, molding, paneling and a new staircase railing. He has recently completed the first of many projects we will have him for. Nicholas and Julie's communication is unparalleled and the attention to detail in his work is second to none! He was able to create the exact vision I had for this particular project with little direction. I look forward to working with Nicholas and Julie on many projects to come....for my clients and for myself!

Jen J

Our kitchen is fantastic. Nick and Julie not only built and installed our beautiful cupboards, but also assisted in the design. We went from a low functioning space to ultimate functions and use. I love the attention to detail, the quality of construction, the ease of their nature, and the confidence I have knowing all of this is built to last. It is worth every penny! I will recommend defined details to anyone.

I had defined details make a custom entry door for me. I gave a general idea of what I wanted and let Nick go. He did a fantastic job. The door turned out great, was done on time and on budget.

Nicolas Norbut of defined details brings to the job both excellent craftsmanship and a keen design eye. He patiently led me through the various decisions the needed to be made to build a new kitchen, offering much needed guidance with wood selections, cabinet and drawer size and location, stains, hardware and design. He was open to my ideas, yet able to draw on his knowledge and experience to offer what were often better alternatives. It was such a pleasure to work with Nicholas and Julie of defined details that after the first project was completed, we hired them to design and build an effienceny kitchen for my parents. In this case, Nicholas offered invaluable advice in ways to keep the costs down while building a beautiful kitchen. he even installed a soapstone countertop, proving that is is equally well-versed in stone as wood.


Can you build custom sized doors or cabinets?

Yes, we are a custom wood studio.  All of our products are built to suit your project needs. When it comes to custom, there are few limitations.

What type of wood should I use for my project?

Once we have an understanding of the project specifications, we will make wood suggestions based on those perimeters. Wood can be an aesthetic design choice while other times the species is essential to the application.

Can you make a custom molding?

Our studio is equipped with molders and shapers allowing us to fabricate any molding profile one needs.

Where do you get your wood?

For 20+ years, defined details has used the same wood broker. He hand picks wood to suit each project. 

What is design + build?

Ideas that need to be formed into workable designs are often presented to us. Once the concept is planned, we build. The design maker process is integrated into defined details.
