Over the years, my workshop has refined its ability to build extremely well-designed, functional, and fluid structures. Several of the techniques we use were invented in our own shop. We prefer to create our windows, doors, cabinetry, fittings and roofing in-house. All these factors combine to gives us awesome creative ability, while at the same time making the most safe, functional structures available.
Here are a few examples of what we can build. These are not just daydreams - they can become real, buildable designs for minimal houses.
Let your mind run free, give me a clear vision, and we can come up with a custom design together.
OR simply give me your needs and budget, and let my imagination (and carpenters) create the rest!
