What People are Saying

“A Great Find”

“I thought the wooden skylights on my Shockhoe Bottom building had to be trashed and some new solution devised because I had searched for someone for the project for 6 months online. Then one day I found Gepetto on Facebook and they knew the historic character of my building to match and had the project finished in less time than it took me to find them.” ~Steve : Richmond

“Unmatched engineering”

“Our construction company took on a very large historic renovation and we were committed to modern standards of strength and energy efficiency.  We assumed that the wooden windows of the original construction would not meet modern standards.  Matthew disagreed, and so we put him to the test.  His windows passed, and 460 installs later they add to the exterior and interior authenticity of the historic character like I have never seen before!” ~ Andrew : South Carolina

“restored hope”

“The Church had lost hope looking at the detail of the stained glass support arches and ovals no-one else was willing or able to repair our historic church after it had fallen into disrepair from inadequite maintenance.  Matthew and his crew rebuilt from scratch where other’s told us it couldn’t be done. Now it will last the next century of service inspiring our parishioners.” ~ Pastor Thompson

Craftsman Style HomE Millwork

The term “craftsman” is most commonly associated with the American furniture designer Gustav Stickley. He popularized the concepts of handcrafted, functional design in his magazine, “The Craftsman.” Craftsman-style homes gained popularity in newly developing cities in the Midwest and West Coast, inspiring new movements such as the Bungalow, Prairie School, and Mission Revival styles.

The craftsman’s style’s simplicity and practicality had a broad appeal, so it spread widely across cities all over the United States and is still popular today. Contemporary home designs often incorporate architectural elements that are reminiscent of craftsman style, even though many of them are not strictly craftsman-style.
