My name is Amos dunham I have recently moved to southern Maine with my wife and 3 children. I have been in residential construction for over ten years. I have always been drawn to historic homes and have been taught extensively about there quality from my father. Since moving to the area I have astonished by some of the low quality work I have seen and due to needs of my family been involved with. I am in this trade because I love what I do , what I can provide , and that I can be proud of my finish product. When you take any of those away it becomes work , it becomes dangerous. I enjoy making homeowners happy and teaching them the importance of different aspects of the greatest investment and comfort. I am open to all comments and suggestions on how I can suggestions on how I can connect with quality trades people in my area and get back to feeling proud of what I do and who I am and that is a carpenter !

Amos,

You are on a good path. There seem to be more tradespeople on this path in the field of historic preservation, than in other fields like ordinary remodeling and renovation.

You might consider joining Maine Preservation, the state-wide non-profit organization, or at least study their website:

http://mainepreservation.com

where they have a listing of many of the tradespeople and craftspeople who specialize in work on older buildings:
