A return to our roots.

Cedar Crest Cabinetry represents the latest chapter in the Bettencourt family's rich history in New England’s woodworking community. Company president Greg Bettencourt's great grandfather, Howard Custance, co-founded Custance Brothers in 1911. Building on a reputation for quality, the company grew to be the largest contractor in Lexington (MA) for much of the 20th century. Looking to continue this legacy, the Bettencourt family assumed responsibility for Cedar Crest Cabinetry in early 2015. Cedar Crest, a company with its own 30-year legacy in custom furniture and cabinetry, provided a great foundation for this effort.

Under Greg’s leadership the last several years have seen a complete retooling and remaking of the company into a state-of-the-art cabinetry firm, supported by a creative, talented, and energetic team of experts who excel at assisting customers in every phase of design, construction, and installation.


From the initial design consultation to the detailed pre-delivery inspection to the thrilling moment when construction is complete, it takes a team to bring your vision to life.



You have a vision, an idea, a dream. Our designers help you create a space that reflects your personality and individual style. Whether working within a traditional New England home or a more contemporary, modern environment, we always look to take advantage of the unique architectural features and aspects of your home in order to maximize the functionality – and fun – that a well-designed kitchen delivers. Unlike some in the industry, our team will never hand your project off to a third-party after the sale. We stick with our customers to the very end, ensuring that the vision we design is executed to perfection.

Your project is handled from start to finish by the same team of cabinetmakers, ensuring that every aspect of construction, every detail, every configuration, is exactly as it should be.


Our passion for excellence is reflected in our Manchester, NH production facility, where a highly skilled team works to transform customer dreams into living spaces that define craftsmanship.


Cedar Crest Cabinetry represents the fourth generation of the Bettencourt family’s dedication to family-owned and operated business in New England. While the last century has seen steadily shifting economic conditions, our adherence to the values of hard work, quality products, and unrivaled customer service has sustained our success.


Greg and his wife Megan feel blessed to have found their passion project in Cedar Crest Cabinetry. Greg's experience in family business, engineering, remodeling, project development, team leadership, and customer service are utilized on a daily basis.

This is dovetailed with Megan's background in culinary media, community impact as a Registered Dietitian, and recently her position as head chef for their two-year-old son.

Cedar Crest Cabinetry has provided a chance for both Greg and Megan to combine their love for quality and community, showing customers how to cultivate happy and healthy living by extending the concepts of "mise en place" throughout the entire home.
