Looking for a Carpenter for Historic Home

Asked by Jill Ferrari at 8:34am on Jan 6 2017

We need a carpenter who can build and install built-in shelves around our fireplace. We have a 1923 Arts and Crafts home with a batchelder tile fireplace. So, we need someone with historic experience to make sure our plaster and tile are preserved.

Hi Jill, I think Ben Kehoe would be able to help. He's a reputable carpenter and I know he's done historic work. Give him a call, text or email:
