About The Founder
My parents immigrated from Spain. As a child, I spent a lot of time in norther Spain at my grandparents’ 400 year old home. Their house had character and history -- there was nothing artificial about it. It was built entirely of stone, timber and wrought iron. These materials and the spaces they created made me feel good. My father, a structural engineer, instilled a practical dimension to my growing appreciation of high quality building. In addition to insisting on natural building materials, he also insisted on strength.
After graduating from high school I went to work as an apprentice in a boat building yard in the Spanish province of Cantabria. A year of building and repairing classically designed fishing vessels solidified my love for working with wood. Upon my return to the United States my parents asked me to build them a house (not a small task). At that time timber framing was enjoying a resurgence in New England. I was immediately drawn to its Old World characteristics of tradition, beauty, and fine craftsmanship. My parents’ new house evolved into a classic timber frame. I have been working with this timeless art ever since.
That was 20 years ago. Ever since that time, timber framed structures have remained close to my heart. I am extraordinarily lucky to work with a building style I love, and to love what I do. I hope it shows.
