We're on a mission to eliminate the soullessness of mass production and spearhead a return to craftsmanship by using genuine materials, offering unparalleled customization, and building each door by hand with time-honored techniques.
As a young carpenter, Don Rees was dismayed by the consumerism and conformity of the homebuilding industry. He wanted to build homes that were authentic and unique to each client. So Don started building custom timber frame homes in 1976. Don couldn't find ready-made doors that matched each client's style, so he started to make custom doors for each home as well.
This commitment to finding unique solutions led Don to create his first swing-out carriage garage doors on a home in 1995. Soon these solid wood carriage doors became a hallmark of his projects. Before long the demand for carriage doors became so great that Don decided to take the plunge and switch from home building to custom doors full time. That custom door business, Real Carriage Doors, evolved into what is now RealCraft.
Today, RealCraft builds custom, hand-crafted doors and hardware to help homeowners escape from the conformity of mass produced products and find the unique piece that will express their style and last for decades.
