I first met Beanie Villerman of Acadian Woodworks nearly 17 yrs ago when we built our house. I've been involved in several projects with Beanie throughout the years. I've kept in contact with he and his family personally as well as professionally. His craft and talent continue to grow. I recommend Acadian Woodworks to any and all that I know. Very talented builder as well as very professional. Acadian Woodworks is very deserving of an OUTSTANDING rating from me.

Mr. Skapars is a top notch professional in woodworking and in training and group cooperation. He came to my shop this spring and together we built two large adirondack chairs and a round table (they came out beautifully). His attention to the finest details of craftsmanship and his patience with the process were immediately apparent. When he drove home with our work product, I realized I had learned a lot from him. He is truly and honestly committed to fine woodworking as a way to relate to and to help humanity at large.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who is a carpenter and what do they do?

Carpenters are skilled craftsmen who build things out of wood. Depending on what the carpenter builds, they may be referred to by various names. A framer is a carpenter who puts up the framing on a house. A trim or finish carpenter installs the finishing touches of prefabricated or custom trim and detail work once a house has been built and the walls are up. A furniture maker or woodworker builds furniture — such as tables, beds and dressers — out of wood. A cabinetmaker is a carpenter who builds custom and semi-custom wood cabinets. If you’re having a home built or remodeled, your general contractor will either provide or subcontract the carpentry work for the framing, cabinets and trim. You can hire a carpenter directly to update the trim in your home, build you a piece of custom furniture, or repair or replace your wood cabinets.

Do carpenters build houses?

Carpenters are trained to work with wood. That means that any part of your home that is built of wood is very likely to involve a carpenter. Framing carpenters will put up the wood that makes up the bones of your home. If you’re having a wood floor installed, it may be done by a carpenter — although being a carpenter is not a requirement to install flooring. Trim, baseboards, wainscoting and any other detail work is typically installed by a finish carpenter. The wood boxes of custom cabinets will be built and installed by a carpenter.

Although all of these components in your new or remodeled home are built by carpenters who specialize in building things with wood, a general contractor typically oversees construction of the entire house. If the general contractor is also a carpenter skilled in all these areas, they may well construct your entire home. More often, the general contractor subcontracts out the various building stages to different individuals, including carpenters.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
