Kevin Smith enjoys a reputation as a distinguished artisan of custom cabinetry, which began when he was in his teens. Working along with his father and mentor, Arthur Smith, Kevin was determined to get every detail right when installing cabinets.
Kevin was commended for his carpentry skills, attention to detail, and ability to provide personalized customer service right out of the gate. Clearly he loves every step of the process, and gets great fulfillment when seeing a project through the installation.
For over 30 years now working in or around cabinetry and design, Kevin has become specialized in every phase of project development, from design, build, and finishing cabinets and custom carpentry, to installation. This degree of expertise enables Kevin to partner with clients, visualize their desires, and use his technical know-how to create quality custom cabinetry.
Kevin and his wife Denise moved from New York to take root and raise their two children, Kevin and Vincent, in the Carolinas, where they have done so happily since 2007!
In 2009, Kevin partnered with John and Rae Packard to form Packard Cabinetry of Hendersonville. Together, they bring over 100 years of experience to the leadership and design team. Kevin’s work has been featured in House magazine, Traditional Homes – Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and Carolina Home & Garden. Kevin considers his work art, and as such, he is honored anytime a client gives him a canvas to work with. He intuitively understands his clients’ needs for functional cabinetry design, as well as their desire to have a masterpiece to be appreciated by future generations.
In 2011, Brodie and his wife, Bev, migrated with their dog, Mollie, to the warmer Hendersonville, North Carolina climate to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Brodie has continued his career in cabinet design as a valuable addition to Packard’s team. He has a keen ability to partner with clients and exceed their expectations with quality design.
Brodie’s work and custom designs have been showcased in national magazines such as Better Homes and Gardens as well as regional publications such as Northern Life, Traverse the Magazine, and Carolina Home & Garden.
Designing kitchens and cabinet areas since 1984, Rob Weeter relocated to Colorado from his home near High Point, NC in 1999. While living in the “furniture capitol of the world”, he discovered elements in furniture design and finishes which enhanced his ability in kitchen, cabinet, and furniture design.
As a resident and designer in the Aspen to Vail, CO corridor from 1999-2012, he recognized a need to offer and accommodate any style or fashion, with a strong following of the Mountain Rustic theme. He also noticed, however, an overwhelming absence of, and desire for, European design and furniture quality cabinetry. This realization led him to travel to Germany and Switzerland to study and become an importer and designer of custom European cabinetry and design elements.
While many of our clients in the Western North Carolina mountain atmosphere may not be completely ready for the minimalist fundamentals of European design, they are also gradually warming up to the idea. That being said, the introduction of a more Transitional approach (the integration of European and North American elements) has also become a growing and recognized design trend in the Western North Carolina area, just as it did in the Aspen to Vail market.
Rob strives to offer unique solutions, however in a subtle way, and enjoy introducing pleasing, as well as functional, elements of interest throughout his designs. Many times, these subtle details and design elements go unnoticed without the observer’s attention to detail. That being said, he believes his passion and excitement in creating a design comes with the introduction of qualities you’ll find unique.
