Kathleen is an artist in every sense of the word. A professional animator and a carpenter, what a balance! Whether creating human or animal structures from wood, hand drawing art for tattoos, or creating animations for her nieces and nephews - 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 it, 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!
