A Home That Suits Your Needs And Helps You Be Yourself

Having a comfortable space that allows you to unwind and gives you that feel-good atmosphere is every homeowner’s dream.

Every home has the potential to become a masterpiece. Whether you are looking to remodel your kitchen with the latest trends and appliances, upscale your bathroom with new, more functional vanities, or elevate your home with custom carpentry designed just for you, you and your home deserve the best.

It’s your turn to achieve the ultimate home look and to create a unique, relaxing vibe that speaks to you.

Happiness begins at home, so let’s make your home your happy place.

Embrace Creativity With A Style Of Your Own

A house starts to feel like home when you add your own touches to it and style it the way you want. If your current home feels like it still belongs to the previous owners and you can’t seem to get it to look like your own, then it’s time for you to make your home yours.

All that you need to do is dare to imagine a home you’ve never thought possible. While kitchens and bathrooms get the most attention in a home remodel project, you don’t have to limit your imagination to these spaces only.

Custom carpentry allows for whatever custom feature you want done. From hardwood staircases to a full mudroom locker build-out to an elegant mantle, if you can dream it, you can build it.

Who Is, What Is, And Why Crossgrain?

Getting the right contractors to work on your home can be a stressful, uncomfortable process. Trusting someone to create your personal refuge can cause anxiety and worry. At Crossgrain Carpentry, we focus on giving you full transparency from the moment we first talk to when we finish your project so that you are always in control with every little detail.

We’re professional problem-solvers, and with that, you’ll get a fine-tuned listening ear for your concerns. They’ll be addressed right away, and in the end you’ll have the best solution to make your dream home real.

Crossgrain means going against the grain, against the norm, and having a different approach than other contractors. It’s much harder, but so much more rewarding for both our customers and our team.

Hi! I’m Dan Rankin. Finished carpentry has been a lifelong journey for me. It all began after I graduated highschool and started working with a framing crew. From there, I transitioned into a remodeling company doing kitchen cabinet installs.

Craftsmanship Is Our Specialty. Here’s What Our Customers Say...


Dan and his team did an amazing job transforming our Master Bath during this past year. He ran with our ideas to change a walk in closet and a small bathroom into a dedicated Master Bath Suite.

He was extremely responsive and worked with us at all steps in the process, considering we had to also deal with the pandemic during the remodel. His sub contractors were amazing and the services that he delivered were top notch.

We love our new bathroom and it truly was a great experience working with him. We highly recommend him to do any remodeling job you might have.



Crossgrain/Dan Rankin did my deck after two “professionals” failed. He was attentive, did a great job, and when the crew didn’t do a great job power washing it, had them come back without complaint or defensiveness.

I can recommend this company without reservation. They were great.I’d use them again in a heartbeat.



Dan did excellent work on my shelves and cabinets. The details were impeccably done as was the quality of the products.

I asked Dan to pose with one of the projects. Sending this picture to friends and family received many favorable responses.

A pleasure to work with during this crazy time. Thanks, Dan.
