Update on Barker Cabs
Well my Barker cabinets arrived last Wed and I'm 98.9% thrilled with them. There are a couple of small issues but I've e-mailed with Chad and he says he'll work them out with us if need be.
Delivery-He puts residential deliveries on a lift gate truck and the driver was great. Backed down the driveway as far as the trees would allow then unloaded the pallets with a pallet jack and pulled them right into the garage for us.
Good thing because one pallet weighed 1100 lbs, the other weighed 540 and there was a big box of hardware and small drawers as well.
Here's how they were packed
Unpacked in the dining room
This isn't really all of it, all the trim (crown molding, etc. are in the garage at this stage)
One scratch on one of the refrigerator panels. Haven't gotten far enough into things yet to figure out if this will show. Chad says he'll replace if we can't make it work.
Slightly bigger problem, this panel and one finished end for one of the uppers are pretty seriously bowed. Was a little disappointed in the QC for this, but again, he says if we can't make them work, he'll get us some new ones out. Not ready to install yet, so have them flat with other stuff on top to see how they do. Jury still out on this.
Drawer fronts and doors are beautiful and finish is flawless (clear finish natural color cherry)
Photobucket is acting cranky so I'll go ahead and post this and then add another post with a few more pics.
