In 1901 Amos William Allen and his son Joe started their woodworking business. They built a strong reputation by providing fine craftsmanship, quality custom millwork, cabinetry and special furniture for churches, institutional buildings and fine homes.

Today, we continue their tradition providing you with the very best quality in our various trades. Our origins, firmly rooted in the millwork trade, have allowed us to expand our services and provide quality homes throughout the Annapolis Valley and Nova Scotia.
