Thanks again for all your help!
After purchasing a house last fall, it was apparent the first job was to
update the kitchen. The layout was inefficient and one wall of the room
wasn't even incorporated into workable space. Relatives in the area
suggested consulting Kitchen Design Center for ideas. We stopped in and
met with Jody Kuhn who was an amazing help from our first meeting. With
only the dimensions and a few pictures of the room she assured us she
could come up with a plan.
Within a few days she had prepared a plan that was far beyond what I
could ever have visualized! The unused space was now an integral part of
the working kitchen and the room had a flow to it that was lacking
before! In subsequent meetings we determined choices of cabinets,
countertops, hardware and fixtures with her expert guidance.
My new kitchen is so much more than what I anticipated it could be when
I purchased the house. Both Jody and Karen were remarkable to work with
and I would highly recommend them to anyone. They were caring and
encouraging throughout the project and always available provide guidance

I just wanted to let you know that our kitchen and bathroom look so
beautiful with the new cabinets & tops. The installation is complete. We
just have to finish the floors now then we can sit back and enjoy some
good home cooking.
Thanks for all your help on this project.
Have a good evening,

Subject: Recognition for Jody Kuhn
By way of introduction, I am Mrs. Keystone Homes! Jody has been a
consultant for our business in the past and is currently working on our
personal home. My husband, Scott, has worked with Jody for previous
homes and she came very highly recommended by him.
At our initial meeting with Jody, she listened to our wants/needs, made
recommendations, was very professional and courteous. Since that initial
meeting, weve had many changes that she appeared very willing to make,
understood our concerns and revised plans timely. Communication has been
excellent with her and shes given several great tips! She has handled
every phone call and change from either my husband or me in a very
professional manner. Weve now gotten to a point where the plans will
meet our expectations, thanks to Jodys dedication, passion and
When it came to pricing, she did what she could for us, taking into
consideration past and possible future business, as well as landing the
current job. I have to say that we took many things into consideration
when deciding which company to proceed with. For me, bottom line is
typically dollars. When my builder husband chimed in with reasoning, he
described a higher quality product, the design hours and the ease of
working with Jody.
I understand that she needed to adjust pricing through management and we
appreciate the savings that you were able to offer us. In the end, weve
decided to proceed with KDC because of Jody.
Jody, thank you so very much. You are one in a million, and it has been
a thrill to work with such a talented designer. I cant wait to see how
the project comes together in real life rather than on paper!

I recently had my kitchen completely remodeled and had the good fortune
of meeting and working with Jody Kuhn in your Appleton showroom. I'm
sure that a letter like this comes as no surprise, but am nonetheless
compelled to share my experience with you.
From the first time I met with Jody, I felt "at home" and understood.
She very quickly learned what kind of person I was and what I was
looking for in my new kitchen. Even in areas I was unsure of, she filled
in the gaps and fine tuned every aspect of the project. Her passion for
doing it right and making the customer happy is apparent every step of
the way. Even when my kitchen was complete, she continued to follow up
with me to ensure my complete satisfaction.
I cannot say enough about Jody - She is highly skilled, professional,
and FUN to work with. You are lucky to have her on your team and I am
lucky to have bumped into her along life's way. She made my project and
absolute dream come true!
In March of this year, my husband and I embarked on a
kitchen remodeling project in our 110 year old house in Green Bay. My
brother-in-law, who builds houses for a living, recommended Kitchen
Design Center because he had worked with them before and had been happy
with the results. We looked at six different cabinet companies and ended
up using Kitchen Design Center. It turned out to be an excellent
Having never remodeled an old kitchen before, we needed a lot of help.
Our old kitchen was completely gutted, a wall and a window where removed
and we basically started over with a big empty space. Everything going
into the kitchen was new - insulation, flooring, electric, plumbing,
plaster, cabinets, appliances, countertops, etc.
Of course, the main focus of any kitchen is the cabinetry. We went into
this project not really knowing what we wanted. That was a mistake.
Luckily, we had Jody Kuhn at Kitchen Design Center to help us. When I
say "help us", I really mean "save us". It took numerous meetings and
phone calls with Jody to produce a floor plan that my husband and I
could agree on. She patiently walked us through the process with a
refreshing amount of humor and sage advice. Once we had a floor plan, we
chose cabinets. Having done that, we promptly changed our minds and
chose a completely different line of cabinets which required Jody to
rework everything - no small task. She didn't blink, really.
We have been using our new kitchen for some months now. It's delightful.
The cabinets look wonderful and are a joy to use. We have received many
compliments about how great they look. Jody has continued to be a good
source for any questions or follow-up issues and her help is always very
thorough and very prompt.
Our kitchen turned out great, in no small part because of the service we
received at Kitchen Design Center and, specifically, from Jody Kuhn.

We wanted to thank you for our lovely kitchen design. We are so pleased
with the final outcome. You did a fantastic job of helping us select
products that worked with our lifestyle and within our budget. You did a
great job of showing us different features and explaining which ones
would be best for our kitchen. All this was done without us feeling any
sales pressure, but truly making us feel comfortable with our decisions.
We appreciate the time and effort that went into helping us make these
Our kitchen is now completed and we couldn't be happier with the
outcome. It is now truly the heart of our home. Thank you!

the recent Jr. Football leagues campaign: "tackling hunger under the
lights". A total of 4900 pounds of food was collected as well as $2,400
We are grateful for the support of the many donors and businesses suck

League and the Fond du Lac Food Pantry to address hunger needs in the
greater Fond du Lac community.
We continue to work with our team of volunteers to eliminate hunger and
to develop collaborative strategies to encourage self reliance.
Thank you again for participating in this effort.

To whom it may concern:
It is a genuine pleasure and honor for me to recommend Jody Kuhn. She
worked as my Design Consultant at Kitchen Design Center (Mid-State
Supply); she handled all materials and contractors during the remodeling
of my kitchen. My neighbor, Randy Bauer of Bauer's Top Notch Finish
Carpentry, referred Jody to me.
During Jody's service with me I interacted with her on every kitchen
detail and depended on her immensely, including the construction I did
myself. Her up-beat and pleasant attitude was refreshing during my
frequent indecisiveness. The ease of her availability, material
ordering, and construction time knowledge made the whole remodeling job
smooth and timely. Her judgment of what works well and what does not was
invaluable. The relationship I saw with her co-workers and her
contractors where friendly and professional.
Jody enthusiastically recommended materials and contractors at no profit
for herself, such as finding the perfect tiles for my backsplash. The
tile people were helpful and I was pleased with what I got for my money.
Jody was patient when I could not make-up my mind over the cabinet color
and choice of granite countertop. She sent me home with samples and
stopped over after her work hours more than once with additional samples
and her priceless advice.
We experienced material problems with the cabinet style I picked. Jody
negotiated between the cabinetmaker and me to what I believe to be a
nicer cabinet. I am thrilled with what I have.
Jody was so easy to get in touch of at a moment's notice and returned
telephone messages fast. I had sudden urge to install some can lights
and needed some measurements. I got what I needed within the hour.
I thought I wanted an island in my kitchen verses a snack bar. Jody
worked on every possible arrangement. She could do what I wanted but
thought I would not be happy with the look or fit of an island so I
decided with her on the snack bar. Since that decision, I have watched
other folks working around kitchens with islands. Jody was right, the
way I work around my kitchen I would have been so miserable with an
In closing, let me say I have no hesitation in recommending Jody Kuhn
for any positions pertaining to Design Consultant & Office
Administration. I feel she is a necessary asset for any company or
person involved with remodeling.

We just wanted to thank you for all your help with our cabinets and
shelves. Everything turned out just beautifully! You have such a knack
for infusing your knowledge and experience with our needs and wants. Our
kitchen, for example, is everything we hoped for and more! There re a
number of things we thought we wanted but after learning from you we
omitted and are so happy we did! And, there are a number of things we
never thought of that you suggested and we now couldn't live without!
The kitchen is beautiful and, just as important, super-functional! We
can't thank you enough!

I want to thank you for all your help in designing our new kitchen. It
is finally all coming together and Paul and I are very pleased with the
way things are looking so far. We owe a lot to your design talent and
strength of direction! I know it was had to keep us on track, thank you
for your persistence. We owe you a nice dinner prepared in our new
kitchen sometime this summer so you can see it in person.
What a great time I had working with you! I am sorry this time has come
to an end and hopefully we will be doing business in the future on more
You had such good ideas for me and sure knew what you were doing. I just

touch of dark. Love the garbage drawer the best... and all the pull

lots of space and I can easily see things
