The Process  for Custom Finish Carpentry ~   Your supervising finish carpenter will start the process with a free consultation, where we work with you in creating trim work or custom designs that compliment your home. Here is an overview of our process for custom carpentry projects:

Discovery ~   We start with an initial consultation to discuss your vision and the projects' goals.

  • Online Research: In advance of the consultation appointment, homeowners can perform research online for similar projects to the one you are planning – by visiting Houzz.
  • Specialty Lumber Company Books: Our specialty trim partner, Tague Lumber, has an online profile book. You can view it HERE.

Pre-Production Planning ~    We schedule a convenient onsite meeting to review trim moldings and trim profiles, or your custom design, to determine how the project specifications match-up with your tastes and your home’s style.

  • Discuss creative possibilities of combining trim moldings and profiles, or view photos online for sharing the vision and co-creating your home's new look.
  • We also have partnerships with two Main Line interior designers, who can assist you in planning your new custom carpentry project.

Production ~   We schedule our finish carpenters to accommodate your family's convenience, including a firm completion date. If want a faster completion, we will assign a larger crew to speed-up your project’s timing, assuming we can meet safety precautions for social distancing.

  • Our carpenters and carpenter assistants will execute the project either onsite or in our workshop. Then they will carefully install your custom project.
  • Upon installation, our best finish painters will finish off the woodwork. We offer all phases of staining and polyurethane applications, as well as traditional brush-and-roll and spray paint finishes.
