A Love for Craftsmanship
“Craftsmanship names an enduring, basic human impulse, the desire to do a job well for its own sake.” ― Richard Sennett
My work stems from an innate desire to do a job to the best of my abilities, and continue learning how to do it better and better. True craftsmanship is a dying thing with today's younger generation, so I'm seeking to do my part to keep the trades alive and well, and cultivate an expectation of quality work.
From woodwork, to painting, trim, flooring, and more, my services are varied, but they all come with the same promise of craftsmanship, quality, dedication, and durability. Licensed and insured, I’m a young but experienced carpenter with knowledge gained from years of caring about the trade. I offer a 1-year guarantee for all my services, along with an attention to detail and consistency that's often missed by the larger groups.
Honesty and Integrity at the Core
“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” --Douglas Adams
Talk has become a cheap commodity in today's world, but I still believe in standing by one's word and value honesty and integrity. So my word to you is that I'll work with the best materials your budget can afford and provide a 1 year guarantee on the services I provide. I won't compromise the quality of my work to ease my schedule or make a "quick buck". I'll do my best to give you realistic schedules that work around your lifestyle, and deliver quality results in a timely manner. Honesty and integrity are important to me, so I won't require contracts to be paid in full until the work is completed to your satisfaction.
Why hire me?
“Do not hire a man who does your work for money, but him who does it for the love of it.” – Henry David Thoreau
There's no shortage of contractors/carpenters to hire, and there's no shortage of projects to be done. So why hire me? I cannot convince you against your own judgement, but I can tell you that I have stuck with the trades because I love them. Yes, they are hard work, but creating with my hands is such a rewarding and inspiring feeling, so much so that I didn't give it up, even with opportunities to use my degree for higher paying jobs. I believe people should get the highest quality job possible when they hire someone, and unfortunately that rarely happens.
I'll be upfront and admit that I likely will not be the cheapest nor the fastest out there, but is that really what you want when it comes to your project? The contractors who do it as fast as possible or as cheap as possible often cut corners and don't leave the home owner with a quality finished product. The "big guys" often hire cheap, inexperienced labor and have too many projects going on at once to give you their undivided attention. I on the other hand am an experienced carpenter who desires to put my full attention into every project I find myself working on.
At Snowy Range Carpentry there won't be ridiculous mark-ups on labor to pay the "big boss" his overly-large share of the profit, nor will there be massive overhead on tons of equipment and employee insurance. There won't be cursing, crude jokes, or dirty work environments. There won't be cutting expenses on supplies to increase profit margins. There will, however, be continuity between receiving and executing the plans, something that is often lost in the big business game of "telephone" from the boss to the lead, to the hired labor. With me it is a direct line. The homeowner tells me, and I do it. There will also be an attention to detail and a clean work environment.
