Jeanne Sterken ~ Designer   Tum-a-lum Lumber  (530) 257-7757   ~ Susanville, Ca

My name is Jeanne Sterken, and I have designed and built four of my own homes, and remodeled many more. I started designing floor plans at the age of seven, when I discovered drawing as my passion. I continued on to learn drafting in high school, kitchen and bath design in college, and computer aided design through college and 20-20 programming.

Susanville’s Tum-a-lumber told us what is needed to come to the designers table with them. With the information collected, their  20-20 design program and a qualified designer to get you on your way to a new kitchen or bath.

With a few simple measurements, you can be on your way to a new kitchen and bids for all your cabinet needs.  Feel free to bring in a simple drawing of your floor plan with:

1. Measurements of the overall length of each wall (from sheetrock to sheetrock)

2. Placement of all existing appliances, (with width and height and depth of each appliance)

3. Locations of doors and the width including trim

4. Location of windows, and obstructions (such as outlets, plumbing, vents, etc); best if measured from the nearest corner or wall and the height from floor noted.

5. Height of your ceiling (better if measured in area of cabinets and in more than one place).

6. Note any soffits with respect to depth and height in any areas that affect cabinetry.

From these simple measurements I can replace existing cabinets, or completely remodel within your needs and desires. Our 20-20 program allows us to visualize your dreams and make any changes necessary to achieve your goals.

Our display in the Tum-a-lum showroom can offer ideas on types of woods, color palettes, and the quality of Kraftmaid semi-custom cabinetry. Please feel free to bring in magazine clippings and ideas that please you.

Whether you plan to install and remodel yourself or want it to happen, we can supply the information you need to feel confident and successful. We can offer contractors names, and give you pricing to begin the process.

Have fun with it! Improve your property values and make your home, your dream home.
