Where does the wood come from?
We reclaim the trees from throughout our area. As arborists, we must remove trees for many reasons. Often the urban sprawl and poor construction practices, doom trees to decline. There are many factors such as a natural cycle of life, poor branch structure, proximity, and safety concerns that require removal.
What can we build, and can I be involved in the process?
Imagination is the only limiting factor! We have the resources and ability to design, and realize almost anything you could imagine. We enjoy working with designers, as well as including clients in the creative process. We often will blog about current projects so you can watch the progress.
How does the cost of custom pieces compare to store bought or mass produced items?
Obviously to design and build one of a kind furniture, playhouses, etc… is often more costly than things from large companies. We strive to be affordable, and are eager to explore options to work within any budget that is comfortable. One distinct difference is that everything we build is designed to last your lifetime, as well as become heirlooms for generations to come.
What sort of turnaround time should I expect?
Each project requires unique time requirements. Throughout the winter, our tree care slows down and affords more investment in shop work. Although we do both year round, there is certainly a quicker turnaround in the fall/ winter months. We welcome reasonable deadlines, and work diligently to stand behind our promises. We will be honest and clear about expectations, please contact us for the current state of our schedule.
Do you warrantee your work?
Absolutely! Although there is often some gamble working with reclaimed wood, we are intent on doing everything possible to create quality products. We will stand behind everything we do, whether it is repairing or modifying a piece built six months ago, or ten years. You will feel confident that your project is built forever.
