Lou Ann Burgess • Kitchen Designer / Project Specifications
Originally from North Carolina, Lou Ann holds degrees in chemistry and physics from Guilford College. She has lived in New Jersey, Wisconsin, Tokyo, and Massachusetts while working for large and small corporations. During her 20 years in the corporate world, she worked on the design, production and implementation of scientific instruments.
Her passion for cooking naturally led to a passion for kitchens. She believes the kitchen is the heart of home and should be celebrated as such. The kitchen needs to function for everyone in the home and have the flexibility from simple cooking to family meals to elaborate entertaining.
Lou Ann is committed to helping homeowners create a space that meets their needs and this has extended beyond the kitchen, to include bathrooms, basements, offices, storage space, etc.
Rich Carl • Project Manager
After having grown up in Massachusetts, Rich spent 20 years in the corporate world in marketing and sales after getting a Ph.D. in chemistry from Dartmouth College. While his day job was sales of scientific instruments, evenings and weekends were filled with home improvement projects.
Rich has years of hands-on experience, but is always staying current with new ways to tackle a project. A true jack of all trades, he is as comfortable designing a web site as installing a kitchen. Rich is committed to providing an outstanding level of communication with our clients. The addition of cloud-based project management software has taken this goal to the next level.
Rich and Lou Ann are married and have two children, two cats, one dog and one boat named “Take Two.”
