What Customers Are Saying

 “We hired Blue Heron Woodworks to remodel our home in 2021. The remodel consisted of lifting the house 12 feet in the air and excavating 4 feet into the ground to add a basement. During the process Tim and his team were professional, skilled, and on-time with the project. Tim answered all our questions and made the process less stressful. Tim’s years of construction knowledge and expertise in residential home building were on full display as we watched our 108-year-old home raise into the air. We were shocked that not one window or door was damaged in the process. Since completion of the project several neighbors have come by to ask about the house. We give them Tim’s info every time. We would absolutely have Tim and his crew back again in the future! If you are looking to build or remodel your home Blue Herron Woodworks is a solid company to work with you won’t be disappointed. “

I’ve known Tim for a long time. Without a doubt, I would work with no other contractor. Tim shows up in  integrity, professionalism and consistently creates the most beautiful work. Tim has done outside restoration for me,my kitchen renovation and most recently my bath and laundry.  I walked into this new space, and just feel overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for what Tim has done with his fantastic crew.

Kathy Winkle

Working with Blue Heron Woodworks was easy and I felt confident my project would turn out like I wanted. Tim was quick to respond to texts or emails when I had questions and he was open to letting me help with the project if I wanted. He always listened to suggestions and had the time to talk to me so I knew what to expect. Tim was unflappable and when problems arose, he always had a solution or two. The crew was also friendly, respectful, sometimes funny, and I liked the music they listened to. I would recommend Blue Heron Woodworks.

Ian Hume

We really enjoyed working with Tim, he's a creative problem-solver and often came up with ideas that saved us time and money, always a good thing!  His work included building a beautiful interior wooden staircase and banisters with lovely craftsman details that showcase his finish carpentry skills.  His main carpentry crew was always friendly and nice to work with.
