We started opening showrooms in 1987
The founder and general contractor of Showcase is Jim Rice. For decades before opening the first showroom in Camarillo he ran a large and successful contracting business specializing in Kitchen and Bathroom remodels. He was troubled with the difficulty that homeowners have when choosing the myriad of ever-growing choices for remodeling. This pushed him to solve the problem and decided to make a serious and heavy investment into opening a well appointed showroom to help his customers.
Our showrooms were created to simplify your life as a homeowner seeking to remodel your kitchen or bathroom. The investment paid back great dividends because our customers loved how much easier a showroom is compared to a contractor with a handful of catalogs and samples out of his truck. Soon, the word got out and we grew.
Subsequently, we added a second showroom in Westlake Village along with our Forest Construction office, then a third showroom in Encino. Our customers love how much the showrooms help them to make decisions and learn about features and options they never had seen before.
Our showroom in Westlake Village—which may be the finest showroom you’ll ever see—features exclusively Wood-Mode/Brookhaven custom cabinetry in five distinct themes, allowing you to explore the possibilities of kitchen design. Wood-Mode has been certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) as meeting the standards for its “Environmental Stewardship Program” (ESP). This program was created to recognize industry manufacturers who use environmentally friendly materials and production processes.
