John started his career in masonry, discovered he didn’t like laying brick and from then on concentrated on his first love, carpentry. He ran his own business for four years offering custom cabinetry and furniture as well as general remodeling. I’ve known John for a long time and have a lot of admiration for his creativity, focus and work ethic.

For homeowners considering a remodeling or renovation project, John offers these insights:

  1. “It helps if homeowners have done their homework and know what they’re envisioning and the products they want. That way everyone is on the same page from the get go.”

  2. “I work with interior designers and architects as well as homeowners. Sometimes everything they imagine looks good on paper but it just can’t be built with the available budget. I like figuring out those problems, coming to a solution everyone is happy with and moving ahead quickly.”

  3. “It also helps if homeowners are open to options. I can offer different designs and make sure that the end result looks right.”

  4. “Even if custom cabinets are beyond your budget, you want your cabinets to last like custom. There are excellent pre-built cabinets available; try to avoid poorly laminated woods and thin veneers.”

  5. “The most important part of any project is communication and planning.”With 2 full-time painters and 5 carpenters on the WORKS team under his overall supervision, not to mention subcontractors, John spends a lot of time coordinating everyone to make sure the project goes smoothly and meets the expectations of the homeowner. “I generally work from blueprints,” he says. “I’ll meet regularly with the homeowner and if there are any change-orders, I’ll write them up and send them to the office for estimating. If we run into a problem, I’ll offer ideas. I love it when people say, ‘I never thought of that. That would look great!’”
