At the core of the business is Matthew and his desire to grow a heart centered, community oriented company. He values, above all else, his family and his team.

Kathleen is an artist in every sense of the word. A professional animator and a carpenter, what a balance! Whether texturing and modeling 3D objects and characters, freelancing to help develop games, assisting clients with color and spatial flow, or working on our latest construction project - Kathleen is always looking at the world from an artistic lens. If there is a problem that needs to be solved, Kathleen is frequently our first to come up with a solution, and it’ll look good too.
We have a "triple bottom line." We aim to be Environmentally, Socially, and Financially productive.
We are a worker-owned business that is also part of a collective of builders (one- to three-person teams) that come together for bigger projects.
The handmade difference. We are a handmade company and you will see our heart and soul poured into everything we create.
Collaboration. We take pride in our prompt, thorough communication with clients, subcontractors, and the building department for the success of the project.
Joy and fun! We smile a lot while working because we like who we are with and what we are doing!
