Words from our Clients

"There are 'go to' people in every trade, but in this certain brand of carpentry and project design there is no one quite like Kris. Forget about his big heart—having fronted endless time and resources in support of the fledgling David Ruggles Center; forget about his uncanny knack for dating the structures he works to restore, born from his sheer native curiosity; Kris figures out the best way to approach the needs of his clients and the building by which they hope to do right."

Steve Strimer, Director of the David Ruggles Center

"Kris Thomson is an artist with a hammer and saw.

We bought an un-updated 1917 house with beautiful moldings, gorgeous windows, lots of charm and a lousy layout. We wanted a more open modern feeling without disrupting the charm of the old house. My husband and I had all kinds of ideas but nothing was really right. That's when we brought in Kris. He tore down two walls, rebuilt the stairs and widened the doorway between the kitchen and the living room.

The result is amazing. By salvaging pieces of the original molding and perfectly matching all new material, the "renovations" are nearly invisible!

I can't recommend Kris highly enough: he was punctual, clean, a master craftsman and a complete professional."

Dr. Lydia Knutson, Easthampton, MA
