We needed a craft carpenter experienced with beautiful hardwood and distressed reclaimed timbers to come in on a tight schedule and completely deck out our new mobile catering trailer. Sander moved his schedule around and had himself and his crew in the Catskill Mountains do the job quickly, professionally, and beautifully. We got exactly what we asked him to do: Our mobile restaurant is sided now in rustic weathered reclaimed hemlock that Sander acquired, as well as cherry from his collection of hardwoods. Our business is doing great, thanks to our remarkably eye-catching trailer.

"It was surprisingly hard to find a company to build an interesting sleeping loft.  There are customizable dorm style structures galore, but very few with an actual 'design'.  We were looking for something minimal and sleek, with a natural and organic feeling.
I came across Sander's site and it was the perfect match.  The whole process was enjoyable and unique.  Sander was very open to suggestions.  It was fun to come up with ideas such as having the loft be irregularly shaped as opposed to a symmetrical rectangle.  I suggested an actual tree trunk for added texture (and Sander found and cut one down upstate!). The result was a combination of rustic and modern that fits our cozy space perfectly."

“Fantastic work constructing my loft bed and night table. Your expertise and experience were very apparent the minute we started speaking. The cherry wood is gorgeous. Paying attention to detail was something I appreciated. Please don't hesitate to pass my info to anyone who would even question using you. I'm already brainstorming about the next project. I look forward to working with you again."

Sander is a craftsman.  We wanted a loft that was functional AND beautiful.  We wanted our children to appreciate that the wood in our home was once a living, natural material.  In addition to the practical structure and support design, Sander created a functional loft sculpture.  He combined a variety of wood species, timber products, salvaged materials and finishes into a veritable bunk-bed tree-house. 

When we ask our son about his Loft he says, “My bed is made of wood.  Wood comes from trees.”  We couldn’t ask for anything more.
