Galehouse Custom Cabinetry
In 1965, Galehouse Custom Cabinetry was established in Doylestown, Ohio by Stan Galehouse. Stan believed that through hard work, outstanding service, and passion for the industry he could build a company to be passed down for generations. Several years later, Stan purchased Easton Lumber company which became Galehouse Lumber. From the beginning, Galehouse Custom Cabinetry has operated out of our own state of the art workshop. Our workshop as well as our finish shop allow us to custom design cabinetry and trim for your entire project. This provides us with the opportunity to build one or several custom pieces and integrate them into other manufactured cabinet lines we offer. With this in mind, Galehouse also has the ability to offer you custom finishes, a full line of countertop selections, as well as cabinet hardware.

They offer three product lines to select from: Platinum, Gold, and Silverline. Each category provides a multitude of selection options.

Don’t call it a Dream, Call it a Plan
When you hear the word kitchen, you may think of it as the center of your family life, when in reality, it is the heart of your home. Cabinets are most often the catalyst for your renovation project; and therefore, the focal point. We design cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms, offices, laundry rooms, family entrances and other areas that compliment your life style. Our goal is to design a new space that brings your family joy and a sense of peace for years to come.
We encourage you to include everyone who will be a decision maker in your designing process.
Initial Consultation: Discover
The main goal of the initial consultation is to have an open conversation where you and our designer are able to discover the parameters of your project. Through a series of questions, you and the designer will be able to define the scope of your project, which areas of your home will be included in the project, what style you would like to achieve and the budget you have established for your project.
Having completed your initial consultation, the next step would be to schedule a meeting for you to begin the design process.
Design Phase: Gather
The purpose of the Design Phase is to communicate your style, vision and needs to our designer so that drawings and a proposal can be created. You should bring several items with you to this appointment: blueprints or scaled drawings, pictures of the areas to be renovated, and magazine photos or online ideas that you like. Important topics to focus on are: door and drawer styles, color schemes, countertops, accessories and unique designs that appeal to you. Basically, everything that intrigues or inspires you!
A week or two prior to your design meeting, we recommend setting aside time to evaluate your space and what features you want to gain as a result of this project. You must also finalize selections of any appliances that will be installed in your project area. We will not be able to complete your drawings or place your order without your final appliance selections.
Selections Phase: Style, Color, Finish
It is possible that your door style, wood species, and finish color were decided in the Design Phase. You may have also confirmed the drawer style and hardware. However confident you may have been during the Design Phase, it is important to thoroughly review your initial selections now that you have drawings to apply them against. When cabinetry selections have been confirmed, you will need to select countertops. As with cabinets, countertops offer multiple materials, colors, and edges to chose from. In this phase, you will need to make a sink and faucet selection as well. Again, with the sizes, styles, and materials that can be integrated into countertops, final sink and faucet selections are required to release the countertop order.
This is the quickest and most important phase. The purpose of the Approval Phase is for all decision makers to carefully review their selections, approve and sign off on your cabinet drawings and make the down payment. We recommend that you find a quiet spot and take whatever time is necessary to check over every detail of your cabinetry design. Taking this time to review your selections now will help to prevent issues later in the process.
We ask that all of the decision makers participate in checking and verifying the following:
• Wood species and finish colors (the look and feel of the cabinets)
• Door/drawer style and hardware (the look and feel of the doors and drawers)
• Door overlay (inset, beaded inset, ½” or full overlay)
• Countertop material, edge and color
• Sink size, style and material
• Location of accessories
• Location and model/brand of appliances
At this point, customers ask about their lead time and when they can expect to receive their cabinets. Lead time and delivery date will be established once all designs/selections are complete, the sales order/cabinet drawings are approved and you have provided us with a down payment.
We appreciate the opportunity to work with you on this project.
