Family Heirloom on Wisconsin Lake

Bath Design, Kitchen Design

When a west suburban Chicago family wanted to build a family resort on a lake in Wisconsin, they asked their architect for a kitchen design recommendation. Their architect recommended Drury Design. Gail Drury, CMKBD, President of Drury Design, and Designer Tina Muller teamed up to plan and design the elements in the project that encompassed the kitchen, the master bath, children’s bath, mudroom and pool room. The kitchen is the anchor in this nautically-inspired home.

Client Comments and Commendation:

In two years of constructing our home and working with several contractors, Drury Design was the only company we didn’t have a problem with. If I found anything wrong –at all – they would come up right away from Illinois and fix it.

They did absolutely everything they said they would. When they said the cabinets would arrive, they did on the exact day. When I had a problem with my Wolfe range, Drury arranged for me to get a replacement.

Drury Design was our most reliable contractor, they’re a tremendous company and their all around quality is excellent.

Drury was there for us from the very beginning until the end. They have great products and they really delivered on what they said they would throughout the design process. I highly recommend them.

Especially working on our project out of state, it helped a great deal for us to know we could rely on them. We could check in with their Glen Ellyn studio anytime, which is close by to our home in the western suburbs.

When you work with Drury Design, you work with wonderful people, great people who really stand for high quality and make it all effortless, they do it all for you.

As an aside, this was an extremely large investment, but I got a great product that was worth every penny – totally – it was so beyond worth it.

Even after they installed the kitchen, if they had to adjust something, it was never an issue for them to travel to Wisconsin.

Afterward when you think about it, with a home that size, to get so many cabinets done on time is kind of amazing. We worked with them in every area of our home. When we wanted to make changes to pricing, Drury Design was very responsive and suggested alternatives that looked great and matched our budget for the room. For example, we wanted higher-end cabinetry in the kitchen than in the mudroom. Drury Design was flexible and accommodated every request without questioning or trying to sell us on something different.

They helped me design pieces that looked exactly like I imagined. My kitchen is gorgeous and they even showed me where to put everything. It works really well because function is built in.

Oh my gosh, it’s just the most fun house. We have tons of people up there. Their cabinets are so well-designed and everything is user-friendly. This will be our family’s getaway for generations. I wish I could be in my Drury kitchen in Wisconsin every day.
