Our Commitment to Quality

The true measure of a leader isn’t how many followers they have, but how many leaders they create. Leaders set high standards for quality, and constantly work to maintain those standards among those around them.

It is our pursuit of quality, creative problem solving, and the art of making things by hand that fuels our pursuit for perfection and pride while woodworking in the modern world.

The culmination of years of learning, frustration, successes, failures, confidence, humility, patience, firewood, blood, sweat, coffee and sawdust is what formed the very foundation on which The BuildLoft has been built.

Craftsmanship, Quality, and Integrity are virtues seldom seen in our modern “throwaway” world, but you can take comfort in knowing that nothing leaves our workshop (or works within its walls) without encompassing all three.

Welcome to The BuildLoft.

“I know this project is probably driving you crazy – but I’m feeding the kids breakfast and can’t stop staring at it. It’s incredible. I’ve been dreaming about doing this for 3 years and never imagined it looking this good… and there aren’t even plants in it yet! I just felt the need to say thank you again. I’m stoked!”

“Pete just completed this beautiful project at our home, in our backyard on James Island. We’re looking forward to many fun family times, building great memories, rain or shine in this eye catching, warm and welcoming structure! His attention to detail made this structure more than we could have asked or imagined!”
