Small Jobs

Large Jobs & custom work

Set up an appointment for us to come see your project and discuss the cost with you.  If it seems like a good fit we will create an estimate for you and once it is agreed upon we will add you to our work schedule.

A sampling of completed projects


Kitchen Remodel in North Seattle

July 2018

We took this kitchen down to the bones and built it back up again.  Removing a wall to open the space, redesigning the layout, building custom cabinets, re-tiling the floors and doing all the finishing touches.

Deck and Fence in Magnolia

January 2018

We regraded the yard of this property, built a short rock wall and then designed and built this expansive deck with a minimalist look that wrapped around the side of the house.  We installed a matching fence in the back so the dogs could run around without escaping, and built a cute planter-box on the deck!


Shingles and painting in South Seattle

September 2018

We went through and scraped the whole house to remove any loose paint, replaced all the damaged shingles, removed some areas of wood rot and replaced with fresh timbers, installed two new windows, and then painted the whole exterior with our professional paint sprayer.  We also cut and installed a new fir sill and window trim. A lovely result.

We were so thrilled with these gentlemen. They gave 100% attention to our job for as long as it took, and it had many components. They are careful of your property and pets, courteous, prompt, and they do exactly what they say they will when they say they will. They finished within budget and on time, and even did little extra considerate things that we didn't ask for! A great hire. For sure Rodger and I will have them back.

I can't say enough about these guys. They did an exceptional job in the remodel of our 110 year old house! First was our bathroom and that turned out so good that we asked if they could move on to replacing all the old lath and plaster walls in two of our rooms! There isn't anything they cannot do. They replaced all the room door frames too. They had one room with all the old walls and insulation torn out and new walls up in just one day. They are efficient, bid accurately and are great guys to work with! You will be pleasantly surprised with what they can do for you.
