Mark and Shawn just completed another project at our home. We are as satisfied as always! From furniture builds to additions, they never disappoint us!

Hemlock Lane Designs really came though on my 1925 Ford Model TT Huckster project. Great design, great craftsmanship and great turn around. I get compliments on it all the time, many have a hard time believing it wasn't built in the 20s. The craftsmanship is that authentic!

Mark and Shawn have provided professional carpentry and design consulting services for us during the past 12 years on more than four major contracting jobs. During those many thousands of hours of labor, or should I say craftsmanship, their attention to detail for excellence was outstanding. They both are initiative and cost effective all at the same time. We continue to appreciate their skill sets and professional integrity and even more, their friendship.


They are meticulous about their work and appreciate the finished product as much as we did. You could not find two more talented professionals working together! Thank you Mark and Shawn for all your tremendous work completed for us.


Henry and Kathie Hoffer

We are beyond thrilled with the craftsmanship of Hemlock Lane Designs. We wanted to make some updates in our kitchen and laundry areas. Mark and Shawn made our visions a reality. Not only do they provide quality work, but they also created unique pieces of furniture for our home that we will hopefully someday pass down to our kids.


Jim and Jennifer Lubecki

We fell in love with Mark and Shawn’s shop, and quickly knew they were the guys to design and build our barstools for our kitchen at our condo at Hidden Valley. Not only is the finished product beautiful, but we also enjoyed hearing the history of the wood itself. The stools also are unbelievably comfortable because we got to test them throughout the building process. We were so impressed with the stools that we then decided to have them refinish our extremely dark, modern bedroom furniture from our home in Pittsburgh back to its natural state and we are very happy with the end result. We have another project on their job board now and can’t wait for it to move to the top of their list.

When Cynthia and I could not find a dining room table for our new home, we thought of our friends at Hemlock Lane Designs to create a bespoke piece for us. We asked these questions in considering who to engage in the design and crafting of our home and its furnishings.

Are they the right people? Do they believe what we believe? Do they see the problem in every opportunity, or do they see the opportunity in every problem? Are they cool? Do they have great taste and design sense?

Is quality evident in everything they do? Are they uncompromising? Do they settle for good enough or do they deliver excellence?

Do they stand unconditionally behind their work? Do they give excuses, or do they just get it done?

Are they innovative? Do they embrace conquering what others say is impossible?

No matter the price, is it a good value?

With Hemlock Lane Designs the answer is yes! Mark and Shawn are exceptional people. We are also impressed by the Hemlock Lane Designs retail store and workshop. Authentic, unique and well curated! They have the courage and vision to sell what they think is cool and the confidence that enough people will think the same way. They have built an incredible brand.

Our work with Mark and Shawn was totally collaborative and together we designed a bespoke dining table that is one of a kind and perfect in every detail. We are absolutely delighted and would recommend Hemlock Lane Designs without reservation!
