“Richard Ourso did a wonderful job transforming our wishes and a flooded home into a design much better than we had envisioned. With his help, we turned lemons into lemonade!! I highly recommend his services.”

Monique Ravey

Richard Ourso designed the cabinet work for our house in 1995 when we began completely remodeling the interior.  The new cabinet and mill work – all in cypress – included the entire kitchen and a complete floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround and mantel, with large built-in entertainment center cabinets on each side.  Later additions included bathroom vanities and a linen cabinet and built-in drawer cabinets in closets.  Even the laundry room, with its extensive cypress installed storage capacity, is both beautiful and useful.  Richard spent a good deal of time with us and at our house to make sure both our functional needs and our tastes were satisfied.  The results are beautiful and lasting.   There have been no problems with the cabinetwork or hardware.  We enjoy and appreciate every piece and often receive compliments on the look and design.  Thanks, Richard!
