VandenBos Design’s new storefront location at 227 East Railroad Street in Cut Bank is a work in progress. "This has been quite a lengthy project, trying to re-do the building the way we want it and to keep doing our work. We have a long way to go, but it is changing daily," said Jared VandenBos of VandenBos Design in Cut Bank.
VandenBos Design is well-known for its custom wood crafts and quality craftsmanship when it comes to cabinets and countertops.
"If you have an idea, we will design and build it and then install it," said VandenBos. "When I am told something can't be done, it drives me to figure it out. I try to build unique or one-of-a-kind things."
VandenBos has been doing construction and design for over 30 years. Originally he created and built a lot of his first pieces out of the garage he built in the back of the family’s house in Cut Bank.
“Needless to say, my 32x40 garage never was used for parking," he laughed.
After a long search, VandenBos and his wife and business partner, Lisa, purchased the vacant Cut Bank Building Service building.
The remodeled building boasts a large workroom, a main office area and soon will include a 3,000 square foot showroom to display "custom products and cabinets, countertops as well as some other products to come," he said.
VandenBos attended several industry trade shows and is now the local dealer for Showplace Cabinetry.
The over 17,000 square feet space allowed him to expand not only his business but also his work force.
Scott Topp has worked with VandenBos for over three years. Tina Harwood, formerly of Cut Bank, lives in Conrad. Her areas of expertise are design and sales. Matt Larson is the newest hire and works with VandenBos as a laborer.
Lisa works closely with her husband, helping not only with the design work, but also doing the accounting and payroll and stepping in as a laborer when needed.
“Our team is here to help you design your dream kitchen or bathroom,” said VandenBos.
As the business grows, so will the number of their employees. “It is our hope our business will be an asset to Cut Bank and the surrounding communities."
VandenBos started doing custom woodcrafts "because I couldn't find what we wanted and I wanted my stuff to last.”
He has built unique and one-of-a-kind bedroom sets, vanities, kitchen tables and buddy bars, kitchen and closet cabinets, end and coffee tables, spiral staircases, barn doors and more.
His custom-made pieces have gone to Kalispell, Great Falls, Helena and Havre “and many places in between," he said. "We are all about making quality products with customer satisfaction our ultimate goal."
