Undermount Sink in Ora Edge Profile

Ora EdgeAn undermount sink with an upgraded Ora postform edge profile is an excellent way to add style, sophistication and functionality to a new kitchen. Say goodbye to the traditional stainless steel sink top-mounted into a standard postform edge.

Many Years Ago….

First TruckIn 1959, I returned from the U.S. Army Reserves, rented a small garage down the street from my house and started building custom kitchens for neighbors and friends. It is hard to believe that was 54 years ago because it seems like only yesterday. However… now is the time for me to catch more fish and paint more sunsets. My wife Shirley is also ready to retire and relax.

Current employee Karl Altenberger and his wife Emilie will become the new owners of C.C.K. on May 1, 2014. Karl is a Union Carpenter and has been with C.C.K. for over 8 years. He has a unique blend of experience both in the shop and on the job site that will be a great benefit to our customers. Emilie has experience in banking, insurance, and customer service and will use her skills to manage the office at C.C.K. Together they will make a great team.

P7281200 by CaraI am 100% confident in Karl and Emilie’s ability to lead this company into the next generation and beyond. Rest assured that you will continue to receive the same quality products and excellent customer service, and you will be dealing with the same staff that you have come to know and trust through the years. Shirley, Doug and I have agreed to assist as needed in 2014 to ensure a smooth ownership transition. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Once again, I want to thank you for your support and friendship over the past 54 years. This isn’t goodbye but simply “See you again soon!” I have a blank canvas for the first time since 1959 and I couldn’t be more excited!

Yet laminate’s advantages go beyond price and selection. Taking a look at these advantages will show you how favorably laminate stacks up against the high-priced competition….. read more
