Bespoke Housing for Board and Boat
In 1980 A 36 year old British literature professor left full time acedemics and followed his passion for woodworking. With the support of his wife and her long career in academics and the arts, the friendship of the craziest bunch of renegade lumber brokers an individual could be lucky enough to know and most importantly the patronage of hundreds of enthusiastic clients from around the nation, Morgan Woodworks Ltd. created a massive body of work comprised of contemporary hardwood furniture, fine cabinetry and custom millwork. Decades of collaboration and dedication have culminated in a small and efficient shop 80" from a 18th century farm house that has become an ode to a lifelong passion.
What this has meant for us, the progeny, is a legacy of art and creation that spans nearly 40 years of projects as divers as the milling of massive slabs of sustainably harvested hardwoods from around the globe, the construction of some of the first custom multi story homes on Hatteras Island to the engineering of huge instalations in the cathedrals of the the Catholic diocese.
Now, the decendents of these two, by birthright, by marriage and by affection we bring all that we have learned to bear in form and method to build working, storage and living spaces that reflect our sensabilities of play, responsibility and spirituality.
From a tool shed, chicken coup or outdoor shower all the way to our Great Hall of the Longboats we use modern and reclaimed materials traditionally joined to create what we intend to be profound in its quality but undersated in its surroundings.
Have a project in mind, hit us up, we'll travel...especially if its warm and surrounded by water...
