Dovetail's mission is to build the best utilizing the finest craftsmanship with a commitment to impeccable quality, environmental sustainability, and lasting relationships.

For 27 years, Dovetail has been crafting fine residential and commercial buildings throughout the Puget Sound. We specialize in custom, complex, architecturally significant projects, with a wood shop to support bespoke designs. Our shop is FSC® Certified to provide you with kitchens, casework, and furniture from responsibly managed forests. 

Dovetail has a reputation for capturing the soul of a space and we are well known for our contemporary detailing and finishes, as well as our traditional craftsmanship and carpentry. Our expertise ranges from large-scale foundation work, structural steel, and architectural concrete, to fine finish carpentry and custom furniture. Our diverse skills manifest in meaningful and memorable projects that define the character of the Northwest’s built environment.

Dovetail's work has been featured in numerous publications including Contemporist, Design Milk, Dezeen, Dwell, Gardenista, Gray Magazine, Metropolis, Seattle Times Pacific NW Magazine, and more.

We build because of you. Lasting relationships are our highest core value, carefully crafted through years of experience and our dedication to integrity, transparency, and open communication. We look forward to building with you.
