Three Custum Wooden gates

I needed three custom wooden gates, one a double gate and two single gates. Each one was unique and had to have a different design. Even though this was a small job, Cole came up with great designs and solutions for the installations. The price was very reasonable for the great work he did and the time spent on installing the gates. I would highly recommend his work, especially when compared to larger companies with less incentive to create custom solutions.

Dear Jacques Thank you for the review on Home Stars. It was a great pleasure creating those gates for you. Of course let me know if any of the gates require adjustment, or if you need anything further.

Fence

Cole designed and built a cat containment fence for my back garden. We had tried a number of things prior to Cole looking at it. None worked.

Cole worked a design that worked like a charm. Excellent craftsmanship and a reasonable price

Definitely recommend his work

Outdoor stairs

I needed to replace a set of heavy cedar stairs going up to the coach house over my garage. The friendly carpenter did a great job in building the new stairs and integrating them with the existing lattice work.

Fence and a barn door

Cole is not just a carpenter he is an artist who helped guide both our projects to an amazing end result. We could not be happier. He is meticulous and kept us informed every step of the way and more importantly his quote was always spot on. Can't wait to hire him again. Thank you Cole for all your care and attention to detail.

Fence building / carpentry

Cole, the "Friendly Carpenter" of the "Friendly Fence Company" built our fence. We're very pleased with final product, his craftsmanship, and can attest that he is indeed friendly. Cole went above and beyond expectation to create a high quality fence that was not of the cookie cutter variety. I highly recommend him.
