WE ARE A CREATIVE
DESIGN & BUILD STUDIO

How’s that for a vague statement?  Let us clarify…

We design, build, rent and manage almost anything that fits our skills and expertise.

Our soft spot is old houses with good bones and using every square foot to its fullest potential. We pride ourselves on being aesthetically nimble and staying true to the notion that bigger is not better, and expensive is not the only option.

Creative and lasting solutions that deliver craftsmanship, beautiful aesthetics and integrated function…that is our goal with every project, big and small.

MEET THE TEAM

Masks and ladders is the way we roll these days but fear not, we will still do it with style and a smile...even if you can’t see it under our mask! 😷🤗

Designer | Girl on Ladder

I have a deep appreciation for a little blood sweat and tears. I am a dedicated DIY’er with formal training to back up my ‘let’s try’ moments.

Some would say I’m obsessed with figuring it out no matter what the format or subject.  They would be right.  I admit to my obsession, however, it makes me good at what I do so I wear it with pride.

My happy place is going on an adventure (literally and figuratively) and find the gems of life that could not have been planned or taught in any classroom.

Someone’s super pumped about this walnut hardwood! 🤣 Ready to take this baby home and mill it into something beautiful. .

Impulsive Thursday night cabinet install. An inspiration, a 20 minute phone call, a shopping trip, a few hours of assembly and we will have a brand new dining room storage/buffet/gallery. Yes gallery. We have a plan... to be continued. .

Special ops: rosemary extraction for napkin garnish. Execution was flawless under cover of Halloween fireworks. .

I obsess over the details, planning and execution to bring the Sitka DIY projects to life.

Crafting the detailed solutions that allow moments of ‘wouldn’t it be nice’ to become realities both in physical and digital creations is what I do.

I also love to DIY but, as the shop master, I aim for less ‘blood and tears’ and opt for extra sweat instead.

Possibly the cutest (and smartest) tiny human we’ve encountered at a midnight takedown. He not only wanted to help...he actually did! He gathered up the lights and took them to the ‘boy’ so they could get wrapped up in the bucket. 😍

I’m pretty lucky to have such great helpers, not just this adorable little guy but an awesome sister, nephews, husband and parents who are frequently spotted climbing ladders, untangling lights and hauling posts all around this city.

It’s all about the finishing touches! Leaves on the burlap make the posts blend in that much more. .

The Assistants
We couldn’t do it without them

Every business has people you couldn’t do without.  Ours is no exception.

We have a team of people who surround us in business, life, and laughter to help us get things done.  No matter how odd or mundane the task, our support network are ready and willing to jump in.

Ok, sometimes we bribe them with food and drinks but they always come through in ways we can only begin to appreciate.

HOW WE WORK

The true essence of our studio is in the approach, evolution of ideas,
planning, execution, and heart that go into every project.

It’s official, the Shaper Origin is cutting into its first big project. We did a few test runs with some small stuff to get the feel and now it is full steam ahead in part 2 of the Murphy bed gym.

Sometimes you just need a pop of colour to add the finishing touch to an exterior refresh!  New paint on the entire house and a new front door with hardware.

Finally going to have a fan in this main bath!  Fixing this bathroom has been a long time coming but it feels sooooo good to see it starting to be reconstructed after a fantastic demo weekend.
