Hi everyone, can anyone recommend an ex pat carpenter that you or your friends have used that has experience in building bespoke kitchens and wardrobes in the manner they do here in Crete please. We live in the Apokoronas area of Chania. Thanks very much.
My wardrobes and kitchen were hand built by a skilled Cretan carpenter. He measured then ordered all the wood for the cabinets and doors, bought the hinges and the fancy mechanisms my wife wanted and then hand built everything.
The doors were sanded then professionally stained and lacquered. All we had to do was pick the handles and decide on the counter height and tops.
We (my good lady) went for granite tops and after picking the colour he measured and had all the granite pieces cut and fitted insitu.
Manolis speaks excellent English, is a perfectionist and is also now a good friend. If you’d like his contact details please let me know. He lives in Chania.
I can personally recommend "Simon the Welsh Carpenter", based in Gavalochori, who has done much work for our neighbours and fitted new worktops and adapted kitchen cupboards for us – all to an excellent standard. Will send you his details by PM.
Hi Computer Technician – I can’t get the PrivateMessage system to work so suggest you ask Monica in the Gavalochori Cafenion/Taverna or Vasso in the Gavalochori INCA as they will know how to contact him.
