Welcome, historic homeowner!

Owning a historic home in Tampa can be a challenge. Neglect & “remuddling” by previous owners can cause your home to display problems that are unattractive & possibly unsafe.

I will use my three decades of carpentry & general construction experience to help you assess the priorities & make the needed repairs. The extensive research I have conducted on historic architecture and construction methods give me the knowledge & skills to make your home more beautiful & to ensure that your investment is well protected.

Check with me before you call an architect, engineer or general contractor. There is no need to run up the cost of your project with services that you may not need.
