About Us


Upon graduating from Columbia College with a B.A. in Economics, Walter gained hands-on carpentry experience by working on various building and remodeling projects in eastern Massachusetts. After five years working for other people he found it was time to start his own business and began operating as a three-man company. Over the past twenty five years his company has grown to seventeen employees and completed over 50 million dollars’ worth of work. When he’s not working in construction Walter can be found at the wheel of his 40 passenger charter boat in Salem Sound.
