Allfather Woodcraft revives the ancient building practices, mixing tree work and construction. We source our own lumber from the trees we fell, restore, or recycle: an ecologically-sustainable business model. All modern woodwork comes from the trees, but Allfather is the only business that combines the knowledge of both.
We love customers who desire a unique project that will stand the test of time – that which requires the highest caliber of skill and craft. You will have our fullest attention until the job is finished to your standards – and our standards are exceptionally high. We focus on anything that is made of wood and more:
Seeking customers that desire lasting outcomes:
CEDAR SIDING AND TRIM
Not all cedar is made equally to that of the old days. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to find cedar that will replace what you once had. Don’t be fooled: the reason for this is that most of the old-growth trees are gone from the planet, and what’s used today are trees still in their adolescence. Adolescent trees are much softer and less dense, and therefore, far less resistant to moisture and more susceptible to rotting. If you’re seeking knowledgeable experts for an outdoor wood project, please contact Allfather for a consultation first!
HARDIE BOARD SIDING
If installed properly, Hardie Board can outlast even cedar. This concrete-fiber siding comes in any color you can imagine, and best of all, comes with a manufacturer’s warranty. Due to the lack of quality cedar available on the market, we are strong proponents of using HardiePlanks as an enduring choice for your exterior home project.
Most contractors today want to sell you floating floors. Why? Because they are FAST and EASY to install and therefore lucrative. Unfortunately, they are NOT fixed to the sub-floor; they just FLOAT on top. This means they are prone to shifting, buckling, creaky noises, and worst of all, waves. Because of the transfer of moisture that runs through flooring over time, floating floors will develop these common issues quickly.
The floor in your home should be sturdy and firm, without terrible creaking noises. Allfather Woodcraft will not put its name on a hardwood floor unless it’s done with our Special Trade Secrets. We don’t cut corners, and there’s nothing comparable to what we do anywhere to be found.
DECKS, BALCONIES, & OBSERVATORIES
Contrary to popular belief, there is no real substitute for a wooden deck which is designed with proper drainage and ventilation. The plastic-vinyl products look cute for a few months, but quickly start to incur mold and require lots of maintenance. Wood is still the classical choice and far superior, not to mention natural and cozy! Whether you’re seeking a normal pressure-treated deck, or something more elegant, made of exotic woods, Allfather Woodcraft can build it to withstand the test of time. Cedar and redwood are both naturally resistant to insect and rot. Ipe, Teak, Mahogany, and Tigerwood are hard and durable options that can last longer than your great grandchildren.
KITCHENS & CABINETRY
A dying art, Allfather Woodcraft can make custom cabinetry, or order from the manufacturer. For all interior projects, we will design and construct whatever you can imagine. We will patiently walk you through the process and offer a wide-variety of vendors for the select products of your choice. We don’t need to sub-contract ten different people to get the job, we do it all ourselves.
FRAMING AND TIMBER FRAMING
It’s difficult to find large sizes of wood that are straight and milled to quality specifications, so we mill timber from the trees we cut ourselves. This allows us to offer wood from the highest quality we seek. We offer knowledge and expertise in the ancient framing techniques of the old-world. Whether its American Colonial-style, European, or Japanese joinery, this is the highest level of the art of carpentry. It brings us back to the roots and the true origins of carpentry which can’t be found in the generic work offered around the Lowes or Home Depot. If it’s modern framing techniques you seek, which admittedly are quick, easy, and effective, we have no problem offering that as well. We work to needs of the individual customer to frame roofs for additions, porches, sun rooms, barns, sheds, and garages.
CUSTOM WOOD FENCING AND PRIVACY WALLS
Classical fencing is made from Locust, Cedar, Redwood, Pine, Fur or Cypress. We can choose a style and wood species to fit your budget and build a highly-customized fence that is unique, or just anything that will offer privacy from the neighbors. Contact Allfather Woodcraft for all of your wooden fencing needs!
There’s nothing like a walk-in closet that smells of fresh cedar to maintain your expensive wardrobe dry and free of penetrating moisture. It’s classical and beautiful and can only increase the value of your home.
Custom Cedar Closet with custom drawers
Once used in spacecraft for its thermal properties, there’s hardly a better option for walls or flooring in your bedroom or finished attic space. Cork provides beautiful sound quality for a music room, and it creates a space that is soft, warm and cozy for your feet during any season of the year. It’s popularly used in Europe but finally catching on in the Americas. We highly recommend cork for your next interior project!
Allfather Woodcraft has turned basements into extraordinary living spaces, including complete installation of movie theatre rooms, playrooms, and entertainment areas with full bars. Basements are often damp with moisture and require special attention to techniques that avoid dangerous mold. We have working experience in this area and can offer wise construction methods suitable to avoid these catastrophic errors that commonly occur when finishing a basement without the proper expertise.
Allfather Woodcraft installed floor, lights, ceiling, projector, and remediated all the mold and solved the basement foundation water issue.
