Joe Micalizzi

Hello! My name is Joseph. I have 15 years in construction and I love working with my hands. To me, there is no greater satisfaction than looking back on a project and knowing I had a part in making it possible.

In my free time I love hanging out with my friends and family. I also love spending time fishing with my son or taking a nap on my couch with my two very lazy bulldogs.

Ken Derderian

Ken grew up in the Boston area, and got a B.A. in Creative writing in Saratoga Springs, NY, where he fell into carpentry and spent the next 20 years remodeling and rehabbing older homes, many of them Victorian.

In 2017, he began work with a reputable stair company, and spent the next few years fabricating stair, and post and rail systems, often from rough lumber. He was the leading post and rail installer until 2020, when he returned to MA to look after his parents.

Where can you find Ken when he’s not at work? Most likely at home, attempting to appease his three cats, hiking with his pal from college, or hitting the road and weekending in Saratoga and the Berkshires, kept company while driving by mystery and courtroom dramas on audio.

Scott Golden

Scott Golden

Scott is a registered architect with over 35 years of residential design experience and is a 1995 graduate of the Boston Architectural College.

Of Scott's many strengths, one of his greatest is really listening to clients' needs, enabling him to design the right space, solve renovation problems, and bring life to their ideas.

In his free time, Scott loves to golf and spend time with his family and friends.

He gets an immense amount of satisfaction in seeing these projects come to fruition and continually learning along the way. 

Over the years Matt has worked renovating brownstones in Boston’s South End, building boats in Charlestown and creating desirable spaces for clients in the greater Boston area.
