dating from the mid-18th century to the mid-20th century and ranging from
houses to farm buildings, churches, meetinghouses, offices, and industrial
buildings. We are carpenters who love old buildings and tradition construction.

undertake wholesale structural repairs.

and/or experience) to lead a team of carpenters to undertake the scope of
work. Experience working on historic
buildings is required.

leave, retirement plan with employer contributions.
