Lead Carpenter and Site Supervisor

Josh has been practicing carpentry for over 20 years.  He has a passion for finish carpentry and is an excellent problem solver with an acute eye for detail.

Josh frequently attends industry seminars through the JLC, is a WEDI certified installer and regularly takes online classes.  Josh also has his building science certificate, HIC, and CSL licenses.

Before jumping into the world of carpentry, Josh worked as a general manager in the restaurant industry. He is an assistant cub master for the local cub scouts chapter, and enjoys hiking and camping with his three children. 




Rasim was born the youngest of five children in a small town in Turkey, where his mother had a huge garden and his father kept bees when he wasn’t working as a carpenter for the railroad. Later the family moved to Istanbul, where he attended school and worked part time for an HVAC company. 


When he was 18, he moved to the U.S. and worked in his sister’s family’s restaurant for many years until deciding to pursue a career in carpentry. When he isn’t at work, he has plenty of projects to keep him busy at his fixer-upper in Watertown. 

Rasim and his wife enjoy spending time with their tuxedo cat, Larry.  Rasim also recently completed the requirements to acquire his pilot’s license.
