The South Shore Millwork Story

Jeffrey Burton, owner South Shore MIllworkA note from Jeff Burton, Owner, South Shore Millwork

Thank you for visiting our blog.  The South Shore Millwork blog is written by our dedicated marketing person on a weekly basis but this time I thought I would take some time to tell you a little bit about my start, our employees, and customers to give you a glimpse into who we are and what we stand for.

In the beginning

As a child, I liked spending time cutting wood on my father’s drill saw. What I liked most was, when I was done, I saw what I built, and it was a really good feeling. So, it was only natural then that I would attend a vocational school where I could hone my skills and prepare for a career in custom woodwork.

I graduated from Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School, majoring in carpentry. Shortly after graduating, I started working as a furniture refinisher, and then moved on to a few architectural millwork shops, before finally realizing in 1991 that it was time to go out on my own. And, with the support of my wife, Sue, South Shore Millwork in Norton, Massachusetts became a reality!

I started small, before I knew it we had ten talented woodworkers, and we quickly grew to thirty in a matter of two years. That growth rate was the result of our team’s commitment to consistently providing not only an incredible product but also outstanding customer service.

I am personally involved in every hire, ensuring every new team member has a similar work ethic, talent, and the desire to provide an outstanding customer experience to every customer – architects, interior designers, general contractors, and construction managers.

Today

South Shore Millwork would not be celebrating its 23rd year without the incredibly talented and dedicated 70+ person team of craftsman, engineers, installers, project managers, and administrative personnel. This team is the reason our high-end customers keep coming back, and why they refer their friends, families, and business associates. To learn more about them, please take a moment to look at their bios.

In summer 2014, we will be adding 47,000 additional square feet to our existing 33,000 square foot modern, climate controlled shop. Our new facility will include a newly designated area for commercial projects, increased areas for residential work, and will provide more efficiency in manufacturing. As always, South Shore Millwork will continue to blend time honored woodworking techniques with the latest advances in new technology.

Our specialty; our customers

I would say our specialty is two-fold – providing an outstanding customer experience coupled with incredibly beautiful woodwork. We cater to the luxury residential and commercial markets. Our staff is adept at taking an idea, a vision, and making it a reality, all the while keeping the client engaged, informed, and happy.

In closing, I thank you for taking the time to read my note. Please be sure to check out our work if you have a project you’d like us to review; or, if you are searching for a career, be sure to check out our open positions.

Trim and Moulding: Make a Royal Statement

maple ceiling and trimA room without crown moulding is like a queen without her crown!

Upon entering a newly constructed or renovated room, your eyes scan the floor, then the walls looking at the doorways and windows and then, finally, the ceiling.  You know something is missing; the room doesn’t look quite right – it looks… unfinished.

That’s where South Shore Millwork’s custom trim and moulding come in.  Whether residential, commercial or historical, baseboard, casing, chair rail, or crown moulding, these design elements add finery to any room worthy of royalty.white painted crown moulding

Trim must be of the highest quality and must be carefully chosen to further the aesthetic of the space.  It can make a powerful design statement by highlighting distinctive features and creating focal points in rooms.  Moulding design elements not only enhance a home’s interior but it can add visual interest to a home’s exterior too.  Whether your home’s style leans classic or modern, you can customize it with gorgeous architectural details.
