ARCHER SMITH

Archer Smith Remodeling is a Seattle area home remodeling firm.  We are inspired by great design and innovative ideas, but also have a deep appreciation for traditional craftsmanship. By keeping the company small and overhead low, we are more attentive to communication, project timing, and reducing the impact of construction on our client’s day to day lives.

The Company goal for each project is to create a space that meets our client’s practical needs and design taste, while staying true to the home’s origin. On a personal level, we receive satisfaction through creating spaces that draw people together. It can be as simple as taking down a kitchen wall to allow family to gather more easily. We truly enjoy the building craft and the relationships we develop in the process. Our focus has always been on our customers, creativity, and the details.

COLIN ARCHER

I respect the honesty and integrity in the work I do. It keeps me grounded, focused and realistic in my approach to life. As a carpenter I love to build spaces and products with my hands for people to enjoy. As a designer I admire the beauty of well crafted, efficiently designed products. As a contractor I'm motivated by a team that works well together and produces high quality results. As a company owner I'm inspired when bettering the surroundings of my clients lives and forming positive experiences with everyone. This is who I am and for these reasons I'm proud to co-run a special Seattle based company called Archer Smith.

SHANE SMITH

I have always been a builder. My dad was a builder; he owned and operated a commercial framing company. I loved working with him every summer. I looked forward to it all year. When I was old enough I took a full time job framing residential developments, building became a real career.  When I decided to go to college I worked with a couple of small residential remodel contractors because the hours were more flexible. I really enjoy remodeling because every project is unique and there is a lot more problem solving and creative thinking. After college I was ready to do more. I wanted to build a business of my own. Colin was the ideal person to team up with. We share the same work ethic and priorities. Now we are building a reputation and a business we are very proud of.
