My passion for woodworking started as a city dweller in Boston after college. Taking many classes in cabinetry and furniture construction at the local votech, I kept a table saw in the dining room of our small apartment and hauled it onto the back deck to work, sending sawdust throughout the neighborhood!
After many years in the business world working in consulting, marketing at Ben & Jerry's, and a brief time at 7th Generation, I left the desk behind and started a small construction business specializing in built-in cabinetry and decks. I enjoyed hanging around the maintenance rooms much more than the conference rooms! This business quickly grew, taking on larger renovation and addition work, but my greatest enjoyment remained with the finer aspects of projects, incliuding finish work, custom cabinetry and furniture building.
I'm very excited about opening The Tree House, allowing me to share my passion for woodworking and help enable the wonderful work of all the talented craftsmen and hobbyists in our area. Our goal is to be a destination for woodworkers throughout our region, providing a full range of quality lumber, and many unique items to inspire you, at fair prices, with knowledgeable and helpful staff that share in your love of the wood!
