Inspired by the masterful carpentry workmanship used in many of the classic architectural styles such as Victorian, Lodge and especially Craftsman, The Craftsmen Group does not have to use pre-produced millwork, we can instead to use raw wood that has been hewn to evoke the charm and character found in the legacy homes of the Victorian, Lodge, and Craftsman style. As such, the Craftsmen Group can produce remarkable artistry, such as handcrafted decorative wood trim and newel posts, woven cedar shingles, exposed beams and extensive built-ins.
