Burrows Cabinets was honored this year to be a part of our second “Operation Finally Home” build, creating a mortgage-free, new home for a very deserving military family. The home is located at Santa Rita Ranch in Liberty Hill and was built for Purple Heart recipient, U.S. Army Spc. David DeTuccio and his wife and four children. The DeTuccio’s received keys to their new, fully-furnished home June 29, 2017.

DeTuccio, joined the military in 2007, and in 2008  he was deployed to Baghdad, where his unit completed raids and extractions in the mountainous terrain. On Feb. 19, 2008, they were ambushed outside their compound. A rocket-propelled, improvised explosive device hit DeTuccio and he was taken to Balad Air Base trauma center where he underwent multiple surgeries and therapy.  DeTuccio suffered shrapnel wounds, severe PTSD, memory loss, headaches and seizures.

When asked what receiving this home will mean to his family during an interview with TexasSports.com, DeTuccio said,  “It will change our family lineage. When you don’t have an expense, such as a mortgage, you can spend that extra money on education. Now I feel I can ask my kids, ‘What do you want to be—a doctor, a lawyer—those now become possibilities.'”

The first Operation Finally Home build Burrows Cabinets was a part of was completed in Fall 2016 at Paloma Lake. The home was built for Nick and Shelby Nelms, who have two children, and who both suffered combat injuries when serving in Afghanistan. Nick is a combat medic and when the truck Shelby was riding in on a mission was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED), Nick was in another vehicle in the convoy. He ran to the truck Shelby was in and found her injured, and helped her to safety. Nick and Shelby were married later that year after returning to the USA.

Full Overlay Cabinet Construction

Burrows Cabinets' full overlay kitchen with SoCo doorsThe modern look of full overlay cabinets is showing up increasingly on kitchen and bath magazine covers and is trending on Houzz. We’ve seen an increase in builders using full overlay construction in model homes lately as well.

Burrows Cabinets’ full overlay cabinet construction features narrow, 1-1/2″ wide face frames and 5/8″ overlay hinges. The smaller-than-standard frame size creates a very narrow gap or “reveal” between doors and drawer fronts at the cabinet face vs. standard face frame construction. Full overlay makes face frames less visible than in standard 2″ wide face frame construction.

Burrows Cabinets’ full overlay construction can be used to create a transitional or modern look while still providing the strength of face frame construction.

Floating Shelves | Floating Vanities | Hoverboards

The trend this year has been towards the modern look and in particular, the appearance of floating, from hover boards, floating wedding cakes, TVs that appear to float on the wall, to our very own floating vanities and floating shelves.

Floating vanities and shelves provide an open look and clean lines, and the visual intrigue of the construction method makes a room more interesting.  Below are photos of our floating shelves and vanities for modern design inspiration.

Burrows Cabinets - celebrating 45 years serving central Texas

Happy Homeowners

Burrows Cabinets' kitchen with Shaker doors in Bone white and Dallas feetCongratulations to the home builders who have taken the procedural steps to install their prefinished cabinets after trim, paint and tile to help mitigate trade damage and avoid post-installation cabinet restoration. We’re excited about the success we’ve had so far with fewer call backs for restoration when cabinets are installed later in the building process, and we know the end result is happier homeowners.

We recommend installing prefinished cabinets after trim and paint at a minimum, and ideally after tile, as well as taking measures to prevent post-installation damage.
Trying to restore cabinetry to its original beauty after damage during paint, trim and flooring installation results in a product with visible touch-up, and the end result is reduced customer satisfaction.
Call us today to discuss best practices for cabinet installation scheduling and trade damage abatement.
