Barnabas was born in Europe in 1966 and spent much of his early childhood traveling with his family as the son of a talented, and refined painter. He grew up surrounded with beauty and creativity. He grew into a vibrant talented artist in his own right – a craftsman, a carpenter.
In 1991, Barnabas joined a company called River City Woodworks of Fernie B.C. Assigned to a Swiss cabinetmaker, he was involved in all aspects of custom house building. Barnabas learned how to build to last and was encouraged to take his time and to get it right the first time. The standards were set very high and their reputation was of the utmost importance. River City Woodworks built from the ground up with limited sub trades. Barnabas was provided, therefore with training and experience in the total development of home building and renovations.
From 1993 to 1996, Barnabas began to expand his experience and started his Apprenticeship under Gord Ohm of Ohm construction. Barnabas completed his education and was commended by his instructor as being “one of the best builders you will ever know”.
From 1996 to 1998, Barnabas was self-employed as a renovation carpenter. He proved to be very skilled at his work and his pleasant calm demeanor was appreciated by both his customers and colleagues.
From 1998 to 2001, Barnabas explored the industry from a creative angle. He had always been a visual and creative craftsman, and started to explore the fine art industry of woodworking and cabinet making. Employers during this time included: Black Forest Wood Company (building custom designed solid wood doors and furniture); Rich Craft (furniture construction including dressers, armoires, chairs, and tables); and Phil Con Stairs (stair building).
In 2001, Barnabas returned to the business of renovations. For the past 5 years Barnabas has worked as a lead carpenter on a subcontract basis for a local Calgary renovation company. During this time Barnabas honed his skills as a renovation carpenter and begun to prepare for his own venture. Customers continue to love Barnabas and his work. He works steadily and hard and builds to last. He is very professional, respectful and offers excellent customer service.
In 2006 after five years of planning and preparation, Barnabas put his skills and energy into building his own company.

His years in the field have given him an excellent overview of entire projects and he is able to project manage and coordinate with ease that only experience can offer.
