Hi, I'm John Gerard. I'm a full-time engineer and a home improver in my spare time. I've written for BobVila.com, regularly contribute to Zillow.com, have my own home improvement blog and an active YouTube Channel. A few years ago, I built the kitchen cabinets in my first home and saved thousands. In our current home, I designed and built custom office cabinets, a media console, multiple built-ins and many other projects. Building your own custom cabinets and built-ins isn't as hard as you think. If you're a little bit handy, I can teach you how to build your own cabinets, shelving or built-ins so you can save money and customize your home they way you like it.
