Happy builders and remodelers create happy clients

We Create Happy Clients By Creating Happy Employees.

When talented employees are treated well and empowered to do good work, great things happen. Carpenters build and remodel beautiful, durable buildings that delight residential and commercial clients. Managers guide projects with care and transparency. So we serve our clients by serving our employees. Our people enjoy benefits that give them and their families the security they need to thrive personally and professionally.

Remodeling and New Construction Craft

We’re Dedicated to Flawless Construction of Exacting Design.

The men and women of Hammer & Hand are drawn to construction as a tradition of craft, and honored to be part of its evolution. Whether creating mortise and tenon joinery for a piece of custom millwork or high-performance wall assemblies for a cutting-edge green building, our carpenters’ zeal for precision allows the shared vision of client and architect to be fully realized and well-built.

Building science drives remodels and new construction by H&H

We Harness 21st Century Building Science to Build to Last.

Hammer & Hand’s physics-based understanding of how buildings function has transformed the way we build. We apply the same high performance building expertise that enables us to construct über-efficient Passive Houses to each remodeling or new construction project we undertake, making your home or commercial building comfortable, healthy and durable.
