Our story

Building Howell & Co. has been a long journey that spans several decades and a few continents. Each step along the way has taught me something valuable that I carry into our work. 

I spent the beginning of my career mostly building log structures: homes across the United States and a ski lodge made of fallen logs in Japan. Working with logs taught me to leverage the unique characteristics and beauty of different materials — and how to think on my feet and problem-solve.


Working with materials that aren’t “off-the-shelf” makes for new kinds of challenges — but at the end of these projects, the results speak for themselves.

Today, Howell & Co. has grown into a team of skilled craftsmen who align with my philosophy on building unique items with enduring, bespoke value. Our team is committed to bringing craft, creativity, and ingenuity to every project
