Our project consisted of renovating the downstairs of our house including the kitchen along with replacing our carpeting with hardwood flooring throughout the other three rooms downstairs. In addition we renovated one bathroom upstairs. From the design phase through construction we found Kitchen Encounters very easy to work with delivering a high quality of workmanship and on schedule. Dave White had many great ideas to offer in the planning stage and his people all did a great job during the project. Phil White also a very skilled craftsman along with the team that put in the hardwood flooring. Prompt followup on any questions and issues(very minor) during the process. We are highly satisfied and would recommend them going forward as well as use them again when needed. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

We are thrilled with the work that went into making our dream kitchen. Couldn’t recommend these guys more. On time, good quality materials and excellent craftsmanship!

The project in Sept. 2016 is the second time I have worked with Kitchen Encounters. They were as great the second time as the first. As project managers, David and Danelle take on coordination of everything from lining up the craftsmen to managing the vendors as they go in/out of my home. The vendors that they work with provide top quality work. The largest part of my project was installing new Brazilian Cherry flooring on the second floor and refinishing the same wood on the first floor. The finished floors are strikingly beautiful, bringing out the natural beauty of the wood! They also managed installation of top quality carpet (feels great under bare feet!) and painters. All provided exceptional work. There is good follow-up and check in throughout the project and excellent work as the project winds down to ensure top quality and satisfaction, i.e. touch-ups, etc. Highly recommend Kitchen Encounters!!

Kitchen Encounters made a stressful remodel easy. We gutted, redesigned and remodeled our entire kitchen while living in our house with two small children. The team was very accommodating, courteous and clean. Communication was excellent as they called me nearly every day to check on progress and update us on what was scheduled for the next day. The work was excellent and we get compliments on our new kitchen all the time. We will definitely use Kitchen Encounters next time we have work to do.

I just had to take a minute to thank you and the rest of the team for the extraordinary work you did on my house. It was on time and on budget with some unusual circumstances to handle. In short… it is stunning, beautiful. I am so grateful for everything. Thank you.


Dave, It was a pleasure working with you. You and everyone did a great job. You stayed on schedule and everyone was so neat and conscientious. It was a very non-stressful time for me. Please pass on my thank-you’s to everyone that worked on my kitchen- Phil, Shane, Dan, the plumber and the countertop people. And I know, if I have any questions in the future with my kitchen I can call on you. Thank you again; my kitchen is exactly what I had envisioned.


David, Thank you for doing such a great job. It was an easy process, even from far away. Thank you for staying on schedule. You did what you said you would do and when you said you were going to do it. I really appreciate it! Thanks!

Kitchen Encounters designed and made my cabinets for our new home. David White listened to my needs and ideas. He and his men are very courteous and kind. As a result I have beautiful cabinets in my home made by excellent craftsmen.


My wife and I just completed a total kitchen, dining room and breezeway remodel. We initially interviewed 5 firms and from the minute we met Dave White we knew Kitchen Encounters is who we would use. Dave listened to what we were looking for and had great ideas to maximize space (a critical need for us). He also described their process and set a schedule they adhered to religiously – including daily calls to review the schedule and address any issues. Any questions were addressed promptly All his guys and subs were absolutely great. We had a couple of really custom items created that turned out unbelievable – just as we envisioned. A couple of times I suggested a short cut to something and they would have nothing to do with it. They wanted it done right and looking perfect. Their attention to detail was the best I’ve seen with any contractor I’ve worked with over 40 years. We love our new look. I work at home and now use the kitchen as my office half the time! If we had any complaint it would be we are now having to buy more kitchen stuff because of all the space Dave created! We recommend Kitchen Encounters without reservation!

David and Danelle did a very fine job for us. They were patient with us during both the design and the construction. The communication during construction was excellent — we received a phone call every day from Danelle with updates. All concerns were addressed quickly and to our satisfaction. In the end, they delivered a new kitchen that met all of our expectations and is just beautiful! We highly recommend Kitchen Encounters!
