Our Story

We were a company that was born out of a love for design, repurposing and highlighting a homes inherent beauty.  We put that level of detail and attention into every product and life we touch.  Renovating not only restores the house, but also restores the story of the home and the neighborhood.  We believe if you want to respect an old house, it's important to keep the philosophy of the builder in mind.  You can honor it by restoring its original state or you can honor it by restoring its original intention.
