Makerhands Woodworking approaches each historic home restoration project with an appreciation for the way the home was built and attention to every detail. We start with the history of the building itself, the materials used to build it, and the techniques the builder and craftsmen used for each part of the structure. We use basic, time-tested building principles to get to the root of problems, and historically accurate materials (or as close as is feasible within your budget) to fix them. Options are offered whenever possible. Our work is cost-efficient and stands the test of time. If your old home is in a historic district, we help you get approval for your restoration and any changes you would like to make. We are skilled at blending modern—especially cost-saving—updates into historic structures. Having spent a decade restoring seven properties in Cold Spring, where a strict historic preservation code has maintained its 19th-century look, we have plenty of experience appearing before the historic review board.
