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."

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."
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
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.
