To me a construction project is a true collaboration between client, architect, builder, and sub contractors. Working together to create a finished product based on the intention of the design, attention to detail, and the client’s individual needs, is our goal.
I have owned and operated my building, construction, and renovation business for over 30 years. My father was a practicing architect and engineer. I spent hours doing my homework and honing drawing skills on a drafting board in his office. After receiving a college degree at Sonoma State University, I trained and apprenticed for several years with some of the most talented carpenters and builders in the area before obtaining my own license in 1983. My training and experience covers all aspects of construction from foundation to finish carpentry. Blending skill in concrete, painting, woodwork, grading, stonework, and landscaping are an integral part of my working palette. Because of my background I appreciate the importance of having the project fit the site, as well as the value of personal design preferences and the attention to detail.
My highly skilled crew which have worked with me for many years, includes two journeyman carpenters who act as job superintendents, as well as lead carpenters, an apprentice, and laborers. Each of them have experience in varied trades which help the pieces of a project fit together properly and efficiently. As needed, I hire additional carpenters with whom I have frequent and long-standing relationships.
My subcontractors and I have worked together on many projects over the years – some have been with me since the inception of my business. Most of these sub trades are small family owned businesses, which I prefer, so I know exactly which individual tradesman will be performing each dedicated task.
Each of my employees have well developed skills for one of a kind woodworking projects, as well as production oriented procedures, when appropriate. My cabinetmaker, trained in Holland, is a one-man shop which provides not only excellent cabinetry but also specialty windows and doors. Finish casework and installation is a source of great pride for my company.
We look forward to having the opportunity of working with you and providing you with a quality and long lasting shelter.
