Is the drive to Shelby worth it?
Many of our clients live an hour or more away in the Charlotte metro area. This usually leads people to ask, “Why should I drive to Shelby, when I can go somewhere closer?”We understand the reason behind the inquiry and want to share a few reasons why we believe that you will find value in taking the time to make the drive.
The drive time is not that much different
If you have ever tried to drive anywhere in Charlotte or any other large city, you understand the frustration of being stuck in slow to almost standing still traffic, all to go a short distance! Here are just a few points to consider…
Its no more time than driving to or from the Lake Norman area (and at least you are moving most of the time and not sitting still on 77!)
If you plan your trip after the am and before the pm rush-hours, it is less than an hour from the Myers Park area.
Our process is more efficient. Since we have all of the products in the showroom and we do “live design”, we can accomplish so much with one trip to our showroom. Other showrooms that don’t offer real-time design can lead to multiple trips and your project can drag out for weeks.
Many of our clients will tell us that they enjoyed the drive to Shelby because it was a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Plus we have some of the world’s best BBQ at Red Bridges Barbecue Lodge, or maybe you prefer their rival Alston Bridges BBQ, yes it is a local ‘battle of the BBQ.’ You can always find hidden treasures in a small town, so be sure to plan your trip with plenty of time to explore Uptown Shelby.
“After researching six custom cabinetry providers in and around Charlotte, NC, we chose Greenbrook Design and Walker Woodworking for all of the cabinetry needs for our house renovation. We were thoroughly impressed with the Walker’s professionalism, design assistance, wood quality, variety of door styles and accessories, physical plant organization and cleanliness, and their unbeatable prices.

We offer a unique customer service
To us it is more than selling a product, it is about building a relationship with our clients. This is the foundation and philosophy that our company was built upon. Our clients matter to us and their specific needs are what drive us to create a design that is unique for their lifestyle. Our number one priority is to learn our clients, no one is the same and neither are their needs. Each client has something unique about them and that is what we want to cater to, to find that blend of styles that matches them. The experience we have gained over the years in doing home renovations and the extensive knowledge of our product is what sets our service apart. We understand what works and what doesn’t in a home, and we also know how to create a design that blends all your wants and needs into a perfect balance. Our clients always appreciate how we can take their ideas and bring them to life, that is our specialty and our calling.
“There are tons of cabinet options, most which use particle board in some areas. We wanted solid wood and quality construction. Greenbrook Design is where we came up with the layout and design features. We also visited the shop of Walker Woodworking, seeing the attention to detail and quality in production confirmed that we made the correct choice. Quality and design were very important to us!”
