We are carpenters.

Driven to master our craft, we chase the satisfaction that comes from cutting the perfect cope or scribe. Each project is an expression of the embodied knowledge and wisdom honed through generations.
Our Work ☞

And we are kind.

When the world is a storm, a home shelters us; makes us feel safe. Inviting a contractor, a stranger, into this intimate space is a vulnerable act. You can count on us to be considerate.
Testimonials ☞

We love the sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. That moment when we stand back and see something tangible, useful, and beautiful that wasn’t there before. Our Process ☞
