How We Work
Whether your project is a kitchen remodeling with new custom cabinets or bathroom cabinet upgrades you want it to go as smoothly as possible. Our goal is to make the process from start to finish stress free and enjoyable. Everyone loves the end results, we want you to love the process just as much.
We give you a plan, but you’re in control. Our cabinet factory designers work with you every step of the way from choosing the right colors to sourcing the perfect materials for your perfect design. They show you what is possible, make suggestions, and you choose the final look. Once you decide on materials and design we give you a prospective drawing of your project.
Once your materials and design are finalized direct delivery is available. If you don’t have a preferred installer or contractor we offer references to trusted and talented companies to complete your project.
Meet Our Staff
Howland started working part-time in the family business, Builder’s Surplus and True Value, while in high school and took over the business when his father passed away in 1981. Howland says, “In 1996 it was time to refocus the business. As cabinetry had been the best-selling department for years, it was clear the kitchen business was the future. In 1998 we changed the name to Cabinet Factory Outlet, Plus and started the remodel in 1999, creating a larger showroom. We have continually updated and added displays, but our most important asset, is our people. While Howland loves helping customers, today his first priority is having the tools for our staff to help customers. Howland keeps busy by providing training, product knowledge, keeping the displays current, answering technical questions, and formulating quick and easy price lists. What Howland likes the most about his job is: “the people, great staff, customers, and vendors working together to bring your project to life.” He also enjoys learning from fellow dealers, staff and vendors at the SEN Buying Group Conference twice a year.
Marissa graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University in 2017 with a B.F.A. in studio art. Her focus was found object sculpture & installation. Upon graduation, Marissa joined the Cabinet Factory team as the laminate countertop manufacturer. “I shifted from making ornamental objects to making functional objects.” Since then, she has moved into front-end work. She currently works in accounts payable and receivable. When she isn’t processing paperwork, she is consistently trying to gain knowledge of industry design. “Within my artistic practice I created harmonious visual landscapes. I aimed to gratify the viewer visually; considering every detail. Those goals transition seamlessly to the approach of kitchen and bath design. I see this field as a challenge – My goal? To create a visually appealing, yet increasingly functional design no matter the budget.”

Megan Taylor is a native Nebraskan and has lived in many parts of the state including Blue Hill, Gordon, Beatrice, Kearney, Nebraska City, and Omaha.

Her extensive experience as a kitchen and bath designer has provided a great framework for her current position as the store manager. Megan appreciates the unique challenges that a kitchen or bath remodel can pose, and enjoys working with customers and designers to find creative, effective solutions to any issues that may arise.
Nick graduated from the University of Nebraska at Omaha with a Bachelors of Studio Art focused on graphic design. Nick has been with us for 3 years and is in charge of shipping and receiving. While making sure the warehouse runs smoothly he’s been soaking up any and all kitchen design knowledge he can. Now that he’s graduated he’s excited to make the leap into the design side of things. “It’s easy to repurpose my degree as the two industries share a lot of the same basic principles. I believe that great design compromises neither aesthetic value or functionality. If we sacrifice one for the other have we really done our job as designers?” Being a great designer of any sort takes a great deal of problem solving and an eye for aesthetics. Nick has both and can’t wait to start enriching the lives of those in the Omaha metro.
