In 1968 Kathy and Mike Simoneaux moved to Homestead, Florida from Baton Rouge after Mike was drafted into the U.S. Army. As a side job, Mike began installing cabinets, and upon returning to Baton Rouge in the early 70’s, went to work as a cabinet builder for Roy Taylor. The Simoneauxs gained valuable experience and eventually bought the business, founding Taylor Made Cabinets in 1977.
