Brendan found his niche in the woodworking industry upon his arrival to Western North Carolina in 2007. Framing custom mountain homes with a close friend helped instill the value of a hard won work ethic and camaraderie that only long days, heavy lifting and piles of sawdust can bring. He eventually migrated back to his hometown on Cape Cod in Massachusetts where, through good teachers and demanding projects, he fine tuned his interior woodworking skills and truly developed a passion for the trade. In 2011 he founded Brendan A. Sutton Fine Finish Carpentry which he developed for the next five years until moving Southward once again back to the city of Asheville, N.C. taking the business with him. "My father was a woodworker and he always had a small shop in the basement at our home growing up. I can remember loving the smell of the sawdust and noise of the shop tools. These amazing projects would emerge from that shop. I love the idea that I get to continue on in that amazement; not just in awe of the craft but the creations that arise out of it by my own hands now. I honestly have fallen in love with wood working and the world that surrounds it."
