I Wonder Why?
You ask, “Why on earth would I want to read a blog post from Dream Closets?” Well, we think Dream Closets has a unique story and an interesting perspective to share. My name is Joni Hunt, wife of one of the founders, mother hen of the employees, and the eyes and ears of all things Dream Closets. In a bi-weekly article, I will share with you industry trends, tips, and advice on tasks of daily living, how to “get a grip on your stuff,” home décor suggestions and ideas, life experiences, and Dream Closets news. In sharing, I hope to provide insight into what’s happening in home design, décor, and building to keep you up to date on what’s new and in style. I also hope to enrich your experiences of daily living with some practical advice and solutions to everyday problems, mixed with a lot of true-to-life experiences and humor. Today, we will start with our story.
A Happy Accident
The fact that there is a Dream Closets is a happy accident. You can read the details in an article published by Closets Magazine and Woodworking Network. In, brief, Terry Farlow, co-founder, owner, and President, was a dairy farmer who, for his entire life, ran the family farm until the plight of the small dairy farm made it impossible to continue. Phill Hunt, co-founder, owner, and Vice President, was a golf pro and golf construction manager for over 30 years. In 2003, Terry and his father approached Phill to help develop the family dairy farm into a golf course. The project stalled, and to make a long story short, the two men who had become good friends had to reinvent themselves. After helping out an acquaintance with a couple of projects, they decided to form a closet company. They have now been successfully operating and growing Dream Closets for thirteen years.
Dream Closets Today
Today, along with the two owners, Dream Closets employs seven people. They are from all walks of life and between them have a myriad of experience in many areas. With their help and commitment to the company, Dream Closets has been able to expand and grow. We not only design and install custom closets and cabinetry; we now manufacture the materials for our installations. We also provide CNC manufacturing services for other closet companies, cabinet shops, kitchen and bath companies, and furniture manufacturers.
Thanks to our ability to expand and grow, Dream Closets is now a proud sponsor of Victory Junction, a camp for children with serious illnesses, created by the Petty family to honor the memory of Terry’s nephew, Adam Petty. A portion of all of Dream Closets’ retail sales is contributed to sponsor a child’s attendance at the camp. If you don’t know about Victory Junction, please click on the link and take a look. It’s truly heartwarming to see how they provide a safe and medically sound environment where kids can be kids.
