Allfather Woodcraft revives the ancient building practices from the root. We try to resource our lumber from the trees we fell, restore, or recycle in local jobs, and then create renovation solutions for the community-resident, and for clean commerce.
We love customers who desire a unique project that will stand the test of time – that which requires attention, skill and craft. You will have our fullest attention until the job is finished to your standards – and ours. We focus on anything that is made of wood and more:
Historical Restoration of WOOD SIDING AND TRIM
Not all modern wood is made equal to that of the old days. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to find cedar that can replace what you once had for exterior siding, trim, or window sills. The reason for this is that many 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. Contact our services today for any historical renovation needs.
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, very 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 and do not last as long as true hardwood floors. Many flooring products can be heavily filled with epoxies, which are not a sustainable product.
The floor in your home should be sturdy and firm, and last for CENTURIES, 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 we don’t create throw-away products.
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 other plastic-vinyl products look fake and cheap compared to wood, and have no life! If made cheaply, they will quickly start to incur mold and require lots of maintenance. Wood is still the classical choice for a superior durability, sustainable, natural cozy community! We use premium materials for pressure-treated decks, and exotic wood decks from domestic species. 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 are sourced from the jungles and often contribute to rain forest deforestation. Plenty of local, domestic tree species can be used for small and large projects. There are plenty of historical examples of various wood species from the Northern Hemisphere used in existing building structure which are centuries and even millennium old.
KITCHEN, CABINET, & BATH
A dying art, Allfather Woodcraft will create innovative, custom cabinetry combinations & drawers for modern kitchen, closet, and bathroom redesigns. Whether modern or vintage, we will assist you in developing, designing and execution of any historical time period replica, or create a unique blend for your residential home. We strive to source and install premium USA-manufactured porcelain and ceramic tile products. We also have experience working with vintage floor and wall tiles made in Spain and Italy.

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 or more sustainable option for walls or flooring in your bedroom or finished attic space. Cork provides beautiful sound quality for a music or movie 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.
