SERVICES

We believe in mindful renovation, restoration, and building practices that include the conscious and appropriate use of wood species for the application, and our climate. Minimizing and or eliminating the use of chemicals within the indoor living space, and sourcing locally for building supplies when possible, are examples of our considerations. We encourage sensible design choices for flooring, paint, cabinets, and finishes. As 1/3 of our local landfills currently consist of building and renovation materials; we deem the separation of plastics, recyclables, and landfill garbage, from clean wood, a mandatory practice. We hope our efforts encourage designers and clients to adopt similar values on their projects.
