Creative Home Improvement
Helping you to make your house into a more comfortable, beautiful and functional home
Serving South Seattle
For now I am a one-person business aimed at helping my South Seattle neighbors improve their living spaces. I've been an avid DIYer for many years and love building things and making homes better by re-imagining spaces so they better serve the needs of the homeowner. I strive to build things that are beautiful and durable.
I don't really put a limit on what kinds of work that I'll do. If it is a project to improve or repair your home, then I'd love the opportunity to help you with it. Whatever project you have in mind, if you want something built or fixed or maybe you're not really sure what you need, I can help with creative ideas on how to make your space more usable. I love to take a poorly used space and turn it into the most functional space in the house.

Below is a list of some of the things that I can help you with...
I take the coronavirus pandemic seriously and expect to place everyone's safety above all else. As such, these are the steps that I will take to help keep everyone safe while completing your work...
I ask that potential customers share as much information about your project through email as possible. It is very helpful if you can send pictures of the areas where you would like work done and if you can find pictures of how you'd like things to look when complete, it is helpful if you can send those too. These steps may help me to reduce the amount of time I need to spend onsite.
I will always wear a mask (properly) while at your home and as much as possible, I will also wear gloves.
I will do my best to maintain a safe distance from everyone while at your home.
If there are any additional precautions that you would like me to take while at your home, please don't hesitate to ask. :)
I love to build furniture that is custom designed to suit your needs or to fit into a specific space in your home. This may include beds, shelving units, desks, tables or many other items.
Sometimes the the best way to make the most out of a small space is with built-in furniture. These become a permanent part of your home and can be designed to compliment or match existing styles, trim & decor.
I can build gates, fences, decks, garden beds or anything else that will help make your outdoor space more functional.
I build structures that do not require a building permit, which generally includes buildings whose roof area is less than 120 sq ft. For example up to about a 10' x 12' shed.
Wires and pipes
I offer some minor plumbing and electrical work that may be a necessary part of another job so you don't have to hire a plumber or electrician for a small change. For larger jobs I am happy to recommend another professional to make sure that everything is done correctly.
I can build pretty much anything that we can imagine. What do you have in mind?
