beyond the home

Whether it's a design & build project or just a build project, we have a track record of success. We offer a complete design service but are also comfortable bringing an existing design to life. We are not limited by terrain, as many shops are - we work on projects inside and outdoors. We offer a wide range of expert services and most importantly- we bring critical thinking and strong craft to the job everyday. The results are evident in our portfolio.
green materials
Our material choices are also very important to us. We choose quality building products that are aligned with conservation and environmental health and practicality. This can take the form of recycled steel beams, exterior timbers produced from old telephone poles or waste lumber harvested from Kansas City neighborhoods. We have "re-used" a variety of materials successfully in the past, and we will continue to suggest and try innovative and practical "reuses."
great shop, great finishes
Our construction facilities are large and expanding. We have two full time shops at our disposal with ample space, tools, and hands. All of our construction must meet the scrutiny of the highest standards of craft. All projects are designed and built with use in mind, so not only do they look good, they also perform outstandingly. Our finishes are of the highest quality and we are wide ranging in our approach. We may elect to use a hand rubbed oil finish on one small beautiful piece or spray a "green" water based lacquer on another project.
clean installs
We also offer a complete installation service. We bring years of install experience to the site, and it shows. We are able to avoid a lot of complications by using our heads and working very methodically. Our installations are considered the cleanest, safest and most reliable available.
