Dave

Dave

I met Dave 12 years ago working at the locan convenience store. He impressed me from the start and began part time doing whatever it took. He is currently running projects. His skills are many- he can paint, repair plaster, fix floors windows and doors, etc... there is little he hasn't done. He is a tremendous asset to the company, and is often requested by our clients.

Frank and I met through a mutual love of classic series Land Rovers. He is a specialist in rustic building and contrinutes on a project basis. He is excellent at timber frame work, sill repair, and cutting out of square, tapered custom fitting boards and spline. Frank always gives 100%

Kate

Kate

Kate first joined the Buttonwood team a few years ago as a summer intern during college. After finishing her degree in Studio Art and Architecture she spent some time working and living aboard a tall ship before returning to Buttonwood. She is currently back in school for Graphic and Web Design. Her new skills come in useful for Buttonwood as the designer for this website. She has spent many months living and working on tall ships, and can't wait for the day she, once again, cannot see land.

Anthony

Anthony

Anthony brings 7 years of hands on experience to the Buttonwood Team. Whether interior or exterior, cathedral ceilings or delicate wood trim Anthony enthusiasm and attention to detail ensure the highest quality work. Anthony can take any project from prep to finish and admits his favorite part of the job is being able to stand back and admire the end product. When ever Anthony finds himself without a paint brush in his hand he usually has a board under his feet. Whether skate, snow or surf he spends his free time riding, enjoying music and traveling.

Fred

Fred handles most masonry duties for Buttonwood from structural support to chimnies- painstakingly matching new work to old. Fred's knowledge, experience and tenacity allow him to tackle extensive repairs or new construction while preserving the period feel.
