We’re always advocates when it comes to how much we love Red Deer. Whether it’s the people that surround us or the companies that support us–our love runs deep for this place we all call home. Love can be found everywhere when we stop and look around our community and this week we have something special that emphasizes just that. Read on below for our interview with Marc, from Red Brick Cabinets, and see for yourself how the love of his life affected him in the best way possible.
My company has been around for several years and in cabinetry for the last three years, prior to that, we did custom furniture and designs for several clients. Primarily I rely on my spouse whose profession is Interior Design. We met in college where I was taking my Red Seal journeyman carpentry certification and her, her Interior Design certification. We’ve been inseparable from that time forward. We see ourselves growing steadily at a healthy rate, the people of central Alberta have made our successes possible and we strive to continue good relations with the past and future clients. Because we are a family-based company including all members of our family we have learned and very much understand that family comes first and we consider our greater family the people who have brought us to where and who we are today!
“Family makes us strong!”
How Red Brick Cabinets supporting this year’s Kinsmen Dream Home?
We felt that it was important to give back to the community that has given so much to us, and we will continue to work together in different ways to make our community stronger. Supporting the Kinsmen and the lottery is just one of the ways to do so!
What does it mean for Red Brick Cabinets to be actively involved in the community?
Because we’re family based, it’s important to show our small family that being involved doesn’t only help others; it helps us individually and as a family, growing and strengthening morally and spiritually.
What’s something about Red Brick Cabinets that people might not know about?
The very first time I came to Red Deer was with my spouse. Shortly after we were married, we went on a drive through Jasper and ended up coming down to Rocky Mountain House. We decided a stop in Red Deer at the north end Wal-Mart to get our pictures from our tour developed. Waiting for the photos to be ready, we sat down at The Keg for lunch. My wife and I looked at each other and agreed that we really liked this small city and it could be a contender for our future home. Two years later, we found ourselves here. Now, it’s been 16 years and we consider ourselves well rooted and part of the Red Deer community. Small city, small world… I find it funny how things sometimes turn out, and for us, it was for the best.
Through other groups, we’ve had the opportunity to work on the millwork for the Central Alberta Ronald McDonald House, several other businesses, and countless private Red Deer homes. Our design team also works on many residential and commercial development projects. It’s our diversity and knowledge in different areas of the building industry that gives our company the creative edge required to stand out on our own. Although we are still a small company, all of our projects and work comes to us from word of mouth and satisfied clients.
