Our Focus

Custom Woodworking

The Artisan Home Renewals name is based on what we enjoy doing most; refurbishing existing homes to include not only new product, technology, and green building standards but to the level of beauty the original craftsman of the home envisioned.

Acoustics, Sound and Lighting

Dave Stretch
Dave Stretch
Master Craftsman
David’s interest in the finer aspects of home remodeling began with the renovation of his parents’ 1845 farm house. His goal was to preserve the integrity of the original structure while incorporating the modernization of the home to today’s technological standards. Having trained in the field of sound engineering in New York City at the Center for the Media Arts, he was able to complete the renovation using his knowledge of lighting, sound control, and electronic media. Over the years, David rigorously expanded his education in lighting control through the widely respected Lutron™ training program, and earned a certification in imaging science for video calibration. Additionally, David became ever-conscious of the need to work in a manner which respected the environment, and he began to explore using reclaimed lumber in his remodels, and using sustainable materials in the homes in which he worked.  David and Andrew began to collaborate on jobs a dozen years ago, and the unique blend of their skill sets brought artistry and craftsmanship together in a way that has made them highly sought after for the highest quality home remodeling

Master Craftsman
Andrew’s career began as a cabinet maker in the millwright union, where he developed a passion for refined woodworking and construction. His mentor gave him a specific rule that he takes to heart with each project. ‘When you do quality work, the calls you receive will be thank you calls and referrals, not complaints.’ After six years’ service to our country in the Army National Guard, Andrew began his full time career in home remodeling. He found clients were drawn to him for his for creative problem solving ideas and refined skills for woodworking and tile work. Andrew and David crossed paths on several jobs in 2004, and found that they each had unique skills to offer which together created the perfect package of design and craftsmanship in the true tradition of artisans.
