- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started working finish carpentry with a good friend. As I got better at it I started to enjoy the challenge and detailed work, finish carpentry has to offer.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
I specialize in finish carpentry. complex crown moldings and dental work, arch flouted doorways, custom built in cabinets, custom fit doors, any type of moldings, casings. and lately I've been doing allot of exterior mold and rot repair on older houses. including siding, crown moldings, and a front porch with pillars that was just short of falling down.
- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I was recently call upon to finish the third floor attic of an old house in west Hartford. the home owner asked 1st if it could be done, and 2nd if the two support pillars in the middle of the room could be removed. Long story short, it was in desperate need of being re-supported. So I replaced the two supports with LVL beams which greatly strengthened the ceiling and roof and allowed for the two Supports to be removed. And now the whole floor is finished and trimmed, and even has a hidden door entrance I made that looks like a built in book shelf, as access to the new third floor getaway.
