He was particularly great at listening to my requests and then utilizing his own expertise to improve and implement them. The redesign was a bit tricky since he was reworking significant portions of an existing unit, but in the end he was able to seamlessly integrate his work with the existing structure. I honestly could not be more pleased--the work is better than what I had imagined and John's attention to detail is excellent. He also finished the job on schedule for a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend working with him.read less

I had about 4 people that I was interested in stop by. What I was looking for was someone who does what they say they do. For example, a true timeline, and if things run early or run behind, it’s important to communicate with no attitude. Secondly a fair price.
When John first came to look at the job, I felt he was not telling me what I wanted to here to sell the job. The other characteristic that stood out was that he was a great problem solver, and was receptive to accommodating my ideas which tend not to be conventional. He seemed like a great collaborator. So he was my first choice. My husband was a part of this project as well and he vetoed some cabinet makers as well, one he had worked before with and was naturally his first choice. In the end because of Jon’s fair pricing, Jon was my husband and my self’s first choice and a good fit for out total cabinet renovation of our kitchen.
Jon did everything he said he was going to do. When the job was held up on our end he was very accommodating and flexible and no negative attitude. He also didn’t nickel and dime us when there were some straw. It is into him the job is done right, and his attention to detail was amazing. He takes some of the load off as he would see corrections before me or my husband would .
So anyway since then and now we have worked with Jon 3 more times on projects, and we just finished our other kitchen, and mid job we threw in bathroom cabinetry that doubled the job, and he graciously fit it all in.
With this last kitchen I wanted my existing solid wood Cabints to be painted white, and had Jon make new cabinet wood doors and have them painted white with cabinets. John organized the painter. Luis was very professional. My family and I stayed in our home durthis whole project, and these painters made it less painful. The crazy thing was when they were done, my floor and cabinets were cleaner than before they started. No dust! They used very professional equipment, plus they all had great personalities.
So even though we just finished this project we have 2 more in the pipeline. An existing kitchen in another family home in SA and a new construction in Orange. John will definitely be working with us on these projects. I highly recommend John Hazen and his California Cabinet Designsread less
