2012 Vermont Home & Garden Show a SUCCESS!

April 24th, 2012

 

On April 20-22 Hawk Hill Cabinetry & Custom Woodwork attended their first Home & Garden Show at the Champlain Valley Fair in Essex. This is the 43rd year for the Home & Garden Show and it was an extremely positive event for Hawk Hill. We met many homeowners in the process of building and/or looking to remodel their current kitchen, add built-ins or custom specialty items. Many of the people we met were impressed with the quality and diversity of craftsmanship we provide as well as the booth and marketing material. Several people requested quotes at the show as well as requests for follow-up meetings/visits/conversations in the near future.

Thank to several members of the Naylor & Breen team for coming to the show and helping to man the booth. On Saturday, Charity, Dave and Isaac Eastman helped out (as you can see, Isaac helped to promote Hawk Hill throughout his travels around the show too) and Stacy Hotte assisted on Sunday,  thanks again and it was much appreciated!

 

 

 

 

 

We also met some fantastic new friends at the show.

Matt Leonetti, Owner of Morning Dew Landscaping and Stonework and winner of the 2011 Best Landscaping Award by the Home Builders Association, was a valuable neighbor to have near our booth. His work and attention to detail proves that not only is he an amazing and creative landscape designer with the ability to create spaces that enhance outdoor living, he is also an artist.

On tastier note: We visited, Patty and Gary Sundberg EVERYDAY! They are the owners and creative geniuses of Island Homemade Ice Cream specializing in small batch ice cream flavors made from local dairy and top quality ingredients.

We were drawn all the way to the other side of the show by the smell of homemade warm waffle cones, just off the griddle. Patty and Gary filled them with their homemade Vermont ice cream. We tried a different flavor every day and the flavors were simply scrumptious! We even tasted a unique Vermont Maple Bacon flavor (yes, real bacon bits in the ice cream).  You can learn more at www.islandhomemadeicecream.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hawk Hill Cabinetry Expands

April 19th, 2012

After the loss of their shop to a fire in January of 2011, Hawk Hill Cabinetry moved into the framing shop located behind the Naylor & Breen office. This space was quickly fit-up and Hawk Hill was back in their own space in a matter of a few months. This was imperative at the time as Hawk Hill had several projects scheduled into late fall. Although this space was roughly 2,000 sq ft smaller than their old space, it has sufficient until the team decided to purchase a CNC machine.

This computerized machine allows the cabinet shop the ability to generate custom shapes while utilizing as much of the wood as possible with very little waste. It also saves significant labor costs with the amount of cutting it can do mechanically versus by hand, therefore allowing the shop to produce more in less time. With the purchase of this machine and the need for the space back that was lost to the fire, Hawk Hill Cabinetry adding on to all three sides.

The sawdust collection system will be in a separate room, a new addition on the south side, helping to keep the shop cleaner and quieter. On the east side, the shop is adding a kitchenette and office for Rich Davis as well as a customer conference room. The exterior design of this east portion will match the Naylor & Breen office. The rest of the shop will look like a traditional New England barn. The west side of the shop now houses the CNC machine and storage. The Hawk Hill team is anticipating their space and we look forward to brining you photos as it nears completion.
