Red Hammer
Red (as in the color of my hair, and well my truck) Hammer Construction specializes in customizing older homes in Seattle neighborhoods, helping people achieve their homes' potential through detailed, quality craftsmanship and customer service.
I work along side a team of skilled tradesmen, whom I have developed relationships bringing continuity, trust, and a tight team mentality.
Together we can tackle just about any project you throw at us. Whether you need, a new kitchen, a custom (work, play, outdoor) space, or a complete face-lift on a older Seattle home we’ve got you covered
How do you do,
A little about me...

I'm a genuine Seattle local, born and raised in the city where I attended grade school (Wallingford neighborhood) and high school up on Capitol Hill.

I’ve always had a knack for building—my dad had a tool belt strapped on me at a very young age. Undoubtedly, I was always into the “fixer” projects around the house—it was a natural fit for me.

I broke into the industry young, starting as a Lumber salesman at Olson Lumber, then moving up to a custom millwork/lumber sales position at Blackstock Lumber. I stayed with Blackstock for several years, learning the ins and outs of the carpentry world.

A client of mine (at Blackstock) brought me on as lead carpenter and project manager for Bantam Builders. For three years I worked side by side with him as we tackled a range of large-scale, custom, full-remodel Seattle homes.

In 2009 I decided to start my own gig—Red Hammer Construction was born.

Six years later now—and still going strong.
