Celebrate with Teakwood Builders

At first blush, you would not expect the word “remodel” to be synonymous with “celebration,” but at Teakwood, we find these words to be one and the same.

One client elaborates, “our homes are like our second skin, or perhaps our virtual pacemakers: by celebrating the home, you celebrate yourself.”

Teakwood president Jim Sasko explains, “most of our clients come to us with a vision and momentum that has been gathering for some time: they have been driving down an uncertain road, and just pulled in the drive. Whether they have recently purchased a new home, started a family, sent their kids off to college, or have new time to dive into a passionate restoration of a beloved heritage estate, our clients have in common their desire to celebrate a life change or accomplishment by investing in their homes.

We all know that investing in the home is one of the largest and most precious investments most people make in their lifetimes.  Why, then, pour in additional resources to enhance it with the luxury amenities found on the pages of Architectural Digest?

When you decide to remodel or build your new home, you are deciding to hit the pause button, breathe life in, and celebrate. In this moment, your house ceases being four walls and a roof and starts becoming your home, your retreat, your dream come true. Suddenly, your kitchen transcends food preparation and becomes an open concept, family gathering place, a point-of-pride, a seamless blend of sophisticated, subtle design and modern high-end appliances. Your morning bathroom routine now is a sun-flooded experience of light, soaking tub, walk in shower, and sleek vanity countertop.  The moment you decide to remodel or design your luxury home is the moment you finally sit around the newly realized outdoor fireplace or wraparound porch with your family members and think, “yes, we have arrived.”

It is with this mindset that people choose Teakwood.  “Clients don’t just want to solve a single design problem, they want their dwelling spaces to soar” says Sasko. While adding a dining banquette, streamlining with mudroom lockers, or designing a master suite with his and hers closets may be the practical project seed, Teakwood clients seek more. Our clients choose the custom built-ins, the bespoke mantel piece, wide plank flooring, hand-glazed subway tile, custom fabricated metal light fixtures, self-closing, clean-lined cabinetry, period millwork, the salvaged barn door, and the hand-forged stair railing, and they rely on Teakwood to create the harmony.

A harmonious home building project is one that is well designed, well made, and well managed. Teakwood excels at producing exquisite handcrafted detail and durable finish work. But before hammer hits the nail, our design team helps clients marry beauty and function—two quintessential benchmarks of a successful living space. Most importantly Teakwood delivers smooth, reliable, and precise project management with an emphasis on full service. “We know this is their big event,” says Sasko, “so we go above and beyond to help them celebrate.”

The wait is over. You have arrived.  It’s time to celebrate.
