Jones homes in Dennysville and the c. 1820, Dr. Job Holmes Cottage Museum in Calais which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
"Joyce and Patrick understand the value of conserving original historic fabric and wherever possible preserving details of 19th century construction. Craftsmanship, curiosity and love for the spirit of early homes are all a part of an innate preservation ethic that they bring to projects. Add to the mix the artist’s eye, a thoughtful approach, timeliness, dependability, and their honest connection with clients …. what more to say."
"We contacted fineartistmade to update the kitchen & dining room in our 1899 Queen Anne home. Joyce and Patrick tackled the project with great enthusiasm.They designed and custom built lovely period cabinets, tripling the amount of storage. There was a tin ceiling in the kitchen area that they painstakingly removed and were able to reconfigure to fit the new cabinets. Joyce & Patrick are very professional and easy to work with. Their work is peerless. They also researched the history of the house which was fascinating - it will be included in a book about local architecture."
