FRENCHTOWN!!! Hunterdon County also has some of the best schools. I love that area of NJ plus you're only minutes from PA.

Winters over the past few years have been very mild! We have even been in the 60's in January. Coldest month is typically February anymore. It's cold everywhere in NJ : ) Can't help you with the cabinet builder... maybe someone else can. If you like PA..maybe look at New Hope or Lambertville on the Jersey side - Bucks County is beautiful!!!

Frenchtown all the way. Nice little town, no crime, great schools, nice people, one of the most scenic areas of NJ. They have a great place for breakfest called the The Frenchtown Cafe, not to be confused with Frenchtown Inn (a top rated resturant). Lambertville and New Hope are close by for things to do. You will find good housing surrounding the areas, 2+ acres, 3000+ sf, fairly new for easily under 600K
