Whether it’s building simple hand-planed board-and-batten doors or a more complicated 12-foot in diameter fanlight window, we customize our millwork to meet the specific needs of each owner and property. All projects are priced individually from architectural specifications or specifications and plans we develop together.
When a contract is awarded, we schedule the work and start the planning phase. We visit the job site to take field measurements, check conditions and discuss details with the stakeholders such as the architect, contractor, or owner. Next, we produce detailed shop drawings in AutoCAD to show elevations, full-size sections and details, and the interface of our products with the building. We often produce 3D drawings for complicated projects, as these can be useful in understanding details, joinery, and installations. Shop drawings, samples and product literature on hardware, glass, weatherstripping, finishes, etc., are submitted for review and approval. Revisions are often required. After final approval by the architect or owner, we check and double-check the plans, cutting lists and purchase orders, and start construction.
The quality of our work is very consistent because we benefit from low turnover among our employees. Our craftsmen have years of expertise, specifically building sash, doors, and millwork. Many had previously built hand-crafted cabinetry or furniture and take great pride in their work. Quality control is an ongoing process throughout production as well as prior to packaging and shipping.
We deliver to the site, but do not do the installation. If a problems presents itself, we send a service team to remedy them immediately.
