Construction as an Artform: This treehouse was built in September 2001.  The pictures above were taken 9 years later in September 2010.  The pictures tell the story of the tree as it grew to compensate for the structure.  Since the treehouse was built with very careful consideration for its natural patterns, it remains intact and fully functional, along with its host, a beautiful beech tree by Elizabeth Park in Bellingham.

Maintenance & Property Management
50% of our business is maintaining multiple property investments for individuals.  We are happy to serve event spaces, bar and restaurants, small and medium condominium units, single home rentals, college rentals, and office spaces for landlords seeking a maintenance person.   Absentee landlords trust our knowledge of buildings, particulaly older homes or historical structures, and happily rely on our services to care for the tenants needs or  improvements.  

ADUmulti familyAdditional Dwelling Units: After a garage conversion, you now have an extra rental unit!  Count on us when you leave town on vacation or relocate.

Multi-family split dwellings: Earn rental income, turn it into a mother-in-law suite, provide more space for guests on a different floor or on the same floor. An inspection may show that additional plumbing and electrical outlets are easy, just add a wall and appliances and start renting.





Emergency Work & Rot Repair
  (before and after shots)
We know about the Pacific Northwest, the importance of the sun, and the inevitability of moisture and its many woes. We are very versed in emergency repair.  There is a 90% humidity average in the Northwest, and buildings are expected to be at 30% humidity or lower to resist the temptation of rot, mold, and other misfortunes.  Don't let a tight budget allow you to neglect your asset, call us and we might be able to strike a deal.

OUR PROCESS

We enjoy receiving calls because we love what we do! We like to share ideas and devise a strategy that gets you what you need in the time frame and within the budget you desire. You call the shots – whether you want to work alongside us on a time and materials basis or you can choose to hand over the full project to us and we'll assist with product selection, design, timeline, sub-contractors, and a contracted bid for the work. Either way, we are happy to assist you, and together we will build a contract that meets your specific needs. With that in mind, here is an idea of the steps to take in a remodeling project:

Step 1: Call or email us and we will hear about your project and discuss your options.  At this point we may be able to provide you with a free estimate.


Step 2: Select your product and have an on site evaluation.

Step 4: Sign an agreement for one of the following methods:
    1. Time and Materials, or labor plus costs, is a process where the contractor estimates the amount of time it will take but the owner decides to pay according to the actual time it takes to complete the job. In addition, as materials are purchased, receipts will be provided. Under this method, the owner has full control to start or stop the project at any time. Weekly invoices are provided and ongoing discussions with the contractor help you, the owner, to know where the project is and where it can go. This option is ideal for remodeling situations that are hard to uncover until there has been a partial demolition.

    2. A Bid is when the contractor converts the estimate into a bid and both parties agree to a list of items and materials to be included in the job. Under this type of agreement, the owner knows exactly how much they are paying at the beginning of the project, with a percentage due upfront.


    3. Renovation Loans - The Weeks Team will work with your bank's construction loan package. 
Step 5: Apply for any permits if necessary.  As a homeowner, you have the right to apply for permits, and if you choose to do this process, you will save money!  Other money saving tactics include purchasing your own materials and assisting with job site clean up.

Step 6: Payment of expected materials or 50% of bid amount.

Step 7: Work (on your schedule), work (at your pace), work!!!  We believe that the quicker the job is done, the better you'll feel when it is complete.  Before a project commences, we will give you a total time estimate and ask you to identify a daily schedule that will work best.

Step 8: Weekly invoices and/or progress updates are provided and used as a basis of agreement and discussion.  Any questions you may have during the job are best clarified on-site or during these weekly invoices/updates.

Step 9: A "Punch List", otherwise known as a walk through, will help to identify any items to be finalized before the final payment.

Our Process is an ongoing effort to meet our clients needs.  The above step by step is a foundation that can be built on by you, or by us, as we share knowledge about your project.


Our Philosophy

Weeks Custom Carpentry is a conscientious remodeling company. We choose to remodel old homes verses building new whenever possible, and to remediate unhealthy environments from moisture damage.  We spend our free time researching, getting to know the latest products available, and learning new ways for our clients to optimize their environment.  We can help you dispell the myths of "green" products and continue being the conscientious homeowner you wish to be.
