FR Review:
The CCA crew "all take such pride in their work," clients say; "it's a joy to see them in action." We hear these craftsmen display such enthusiasm for what they do—it rubs off on everyone involved. Even the most demanding and finicky of LA designers get along well with the folks at CCA. CCA is a working partnership formed by three experts who previously owned their own millworking firms: Tom Calnon, Kevin Chakerian and Fred Anderson. Today, the firm has a total of seven employees, and a typical CCA remodeling project starts at $50,000. Past projects have included kitchens, libraries, walk-in closets and even furniture—along with a few new homes and a hopper of smaller projects served up by past clients who just can't get enough.

In addition to offering fabrication and installation (but no finishes), CCA will also offer as much input at the design stage as requested. Designers know CCA as the firm that "can make things work," while clients tell us they value its design acumen. We hear the partners complement each other's abilities: Kevin keeps the books, Fred oversees the shop and detail work and Tom controls bids, design and installation. References report this firm is frank about timelines, keeps everyone in the loop, is always available to field questions and follows through. CCA adapts well to shifting job conditions and takes pains to satisfy the client completely, which explains why clients are more than happy to pay upper-end prices for its services. Sources agree that Tom, Kevin, Fred and crew are "genuinely nice" people and a "pleasure to work with."

Representative Client Comments:
"All in all a great experience." "Tom is really good at redefining design and adding on aesthetic details while fitting the jigsaw puzzle of what we wanted into the space we had." "I'd recommend them to anyone for anything." "The men are nice to have around. You can just leave and everything will be okay." "I don't think they're cheap, but they're worth it." "Just as responsive with the little things."
