Good Dog Rosie

For as long as Hatchet Design Build has operated, we’ve run our mill-shop out of the office basement. Our master craftsman ran every job on a single table saw with limited space. In 2017, it became clear we were taking on more projects than our basement could fit, prompting us to expand not only our physical space by moving the shop to Industry City, but also our capabilities as a business by branching out our crafts people into a subsidiary company.

When it came to picking a name for our new entity, we wanted to pick something that embodied the spirit of our team. If you’ve ever come to our office, you’ve probably met our Principal Zach Rockhill’s blue heeler, Rosie. We think of Rosie as an embodiment of who we are as a company. We’re loyal, patient, playful and hardworking. Sure, Rosie only works hard at her Frisbee game, but we appreciate ethic where we see it. With that, we registered our company as Good Dog Rosie Millwork and Fabrication.

Custom Built Doors

Over on Pulaski street where we restored a historic cornice, we also built a set of custom doors to go with the new façade. If you haven’t already checked out our post about the cornice restoration, you should definitely do so.

In March 2015, we began work on a home renovation on Pulaski St. in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. This brownstone, like a myriad of others in Brooklyn, contained historic details–such as its original cornice–that we wanted to preserve while updating the home: recreating and rehabilitating them were some of our top priorities. It’s these details that make Brooklyn architecture so diverse and interesting!
