About Us

Creative Carpentry, Inc., is a fully licensed and insured carpentry business owned by Nick Nowlin. Nick is a licensed builder with the State of Michigan, and prides himself on staying up to date with the latest advances in building.

We are based on the belief that the customers' needs are of the utmost importance. The entire team is committed to meeting those needs 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

One way that we do this is by NOT marking up our material costs. You will pay exactly what we pay and nothing more; we can even give you copies of the receipts to prove it. The licensed owner of Creative Carpentry, Inc., Nick Nowlin, is on every job site. You will NEVER find him sitting in the back office.

It is because of our strong work ethic and commitment to our customers' satisfaction that a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.

We are a local family owned business. We believe in supporting the community that supports us. That is why we support other local businesses whenever possible and give back to the community that we live, work, and play in.
