Nate Lucas has joined me for a second season on the "sawdust trail", and I have been reminded and amazed what a fit, energetic, and eager young person can accomplish.
So good to have Nate on board!
Bill Tucker, Artisan Builder & Craftsman
Bill has always had a knack for building things. He recalls growing up on his family's hill farm (the same property that he stewards with his own family today) and tearing down an old chicken coop in order to salvage the nails to build his first cabin. He was 10 years old at the time.
Backwoods cabins turned into nearly half a century of house construction and renovation, historic preservation, architectural design, shed, garage, and barn building, countless projects for his family, and a passionate commitment to all things wood.
Bill harvests lumber from his family's forestland (sustainably managed through the Use Value Program), mills everything on site, and designs each building with a carefully honed eye for detail and attention to quality.
We look forward to working with you.

Local wood - local labor - local savings
Bill is a true craftsman, and a pleasure to work with.
Easy-going, neat, efficient.
Bill's workmanship is beautiful, meticulous, and precise...you can see the love that goes into everything he builds.
When you can get this kind of quality, why would you go anywhere else?
Bill is not only a builder; he's an artist.
