DESIGN


Although based in Maine, we frequently work with clients throughout the Northeast. Wherever you are located, we believe in clear, honest communication at every stage of the process. We learn all we can about your space and how you live in it and use that knowledge to create designs that combine aesthetics with functionality—maximizing space without compromising quality or beauty. To make sure the design works for you on all practical and aesthetic levels, we provide material and finish samples and create 3D computer models that allow you to see every detail prior to construction.

 

Shirlene's kitchen in her beautiful 1800s home, just a block away from the shop. With our design we hoped to recapture the gorgeous antique aesthetic of the original house without sacrificing modern amenities. Local granite, a farmhouse sink, soft-closing dovetail drawers, and a stark white lacquer finish did the trick.

When I walked into Block Brothers Custom Cabinets, I received a friendly greeting from Ben and his dog Lucy. Although my cabinet needs were not quite defined, Ben worked patiently with me to help me define my needs… I didn’t expect the remodeling would be the highlight of the summer, but the entire process was easy and fun and the end result was better than I expected.

BUILD


BUILD


Every piece of cabinetry is crafted with extraordinary attention to detail in our small shop in Searsport, Maine. We appreciate the uniqueness of each project and hold ourselves to the highest standards. We carefully select every piece of wood, align the grain, individually fit the doors, sand the surfaces smooth, and make sure every edge is eased to look and feel just right. The results are a combination of rugged durability and next-level quality.

The final product is a true work of art. It is as beautiful as it is functional. We wanted an heirloom quality piece of furniture, but one that we could actually live with and use heavily for years to come, and that is exactly what we got.

We use sustainably and locally sourced lumber, sheet goods free of formaldehyde, and low-VOC finishes whenever possible. We prefer these options for the sake of the environment, but also for the health of the crew, the homeowners, and their families.

INSTALL


INSTALL


Attention to detail at the beginning of the design process results in a seamless install with as little disruption to the home as possible. We familiarize ourselves with the space well in advance of building cabinets, making sure our work meets the contours of existing walls and floors (even in 150-year-old homes). Every member of our team cares deeply about the end result. In addition to quality, we also care about building personal relationships with our clients. We want to facilitate an experience that is enjoyable and rewarding for everyone at every stage of the process. Our cabinets are designed, built, and installed to last well beyond our lifetimes.

During the installation Ben and all of his crew were courteous and polite while at our home. Without hesitation they were able to work quickly with and around the other contractors without sacrificing quality for speed. We would highly recommend Block Brothers to anyone seeking the best craftsmanship, professional experience, and personalized building experience.
