Outthinking the Outdoors.
Kent Forsland is no stranger to business success. In 1987 Kent turned his passion for architecture into a business and launched Designer Doors, a company which designs, constructs and installs custom carriage-house garage doors for clients across North America. After 20 years of creating “architectural harmony,” Kent proudly sold the company to its employees with plans to retire, but like most entrepreneurs Kent’s personal needs spawned yet another business idea and CDN was called in to support Kent’s vision.
Kent wanted to locate a small airplane hangar on his property but could not find anything architecturally compatible. He also noticed many restaurants had a need for patio seating even when the weather was inclement. After some additional research, Kent determined there was definitely a need in the market that was not being met and figured why not develop a modular structure that can be customized to meet every customer’s structure and style preferences and so that’s exactly what he did. CDN not only developed Kent’s airplane hangar, but also developed a modular patio cover which is attractive, easy to use and allows people and businesses to be outside more often.
