Kind words from our clients.   Thank you!

We brought Dale in to Skydeck to create 3 benches to go along with our newly renovated space.  After walking the area with him, he came back to me with a great design that was really custom for our space.  The design experience was fun and the finished product is beautiful.  We even tried to change the design a few times but kept coming right back to where he started.  His vision was right on at the outset!  Thanks Dale!

I have worked with Dale Meiners and his artisans on two different projects and each of them was executed
                  beautifully resulting in happy Clients. Being an interior designer I hold the artisans that I work with to the highest quality
                  standards and Dale Meiners and his crew are able to build and install the most intricate designs possible. When I work with
                  Dale I am always confident that the finished product will be impeccably well built and my design intent will be fully realized.
                  Dale is an excellent communicator and always responded promptly to my phone calls and emails which is of utmost importance
                  to me. I would recommend Trimline Custom Designs to anyone that is looking for a custom millworker and I look forward to working
                  with Dale on future projects.

As a designer, I've worked with a number of millwork/casepiece professionals. Trimline has impressed me with their commitment to quality and their drive to meet deadlines. Every member of Trimline is an absolute pleasure to work with during all phases of the project. One example of their ethic is when we worked together on a display case for a commercial space. The clients had a comically short deadline to complete the lobby display (3 weeks). Not only did Trimline get it ready in time but they also found time to install the lighting, even though that wasn't in the original bid. They are wonderful professionals and make every effort to make you and your client happy.

"Working with Dale was fantastic from the beginning stages of selecting woods and finishes, the collaboration and sharing of design ideas, and through the final installation of the office, working with his team who did a great job on the installation.  We've had numerous people compliment the finished office, and it's really making a difference now that we're in the market to sell our condo.  I'm definitely going to be giving Dale a call to do some work on our new house."
