John Gowrie

Finish Carpenter and Woodworker


Thanks for taking the time to visit my site.  My name is John Gowrie.  I am a finish carpenter & woodworker located in the Village of Suffern, N.Y..  I’ve been working as a carpenter since 1995.  This site’s purpose is primarily to let you know a little about me and my work.  You can view images of jobs I’ve finished as both a sub-contractor and a sole-proprietor.

Here are a few images from a recent project.  The customer had a mudroom but the area was small and they wanted a plan to create storage and a place for the family to hang coats and store book bags and foot ware without cramping the area.

Most of my work comes to me through word of mouth as I don’t advertise.  I find this to be the best way to get customers to contact me because it probably means I have been recommended by someone I’ve worked for already.  This means you already have a degree of comfort contacting me and I can have the same dealing with you.  That is one of the biggest hurdles to overcome when letting someone work in your house.  I take my reputation seriously and don’t work in a way that would tarnish it.  I still believe that a handshake means something to people.  To me it means I will perform the task I’ve been hired to perform as promised and that I will be paid at the end of the task.

My rates are fair and I’m not looking to gouge anyone I work for.  You can feel assured that hiring me to do a job will get you the professional results you are looking for.  You’re also contributing to your local economy by hiring a property owning tax-payer and LEGAL citizen of the U.S.A. that supports the other local businesses in the area.  I work on my own close to 100% of the time.  I’ll never send someone to do work for me.  You see me on the first day, every day up to the last day.. I will always be on the job.  Not many others can say they approach working on your home the same way!
