I’ve been building things since I was a kid, starting with skateboard ramps, go-carts, & tree houses. Since then I’ve developed a solid construction skill set that includes a wide spectrum of trades, such as framing, plumbing, electrical, concrete, flooring, roofing, tile, insulation, HVAC, windows and doors, painting & finish work. In 2014 I earned my General Contractor’s License (California Type “B”) and started a sole proprietorship called Lorenzkraft Design/Build.

Hill House in Minnesota with Recycled Barn Planks
Weathered barn planks used for interior wall behind fireplace. We got the wood from a local farmer who took them off his old barn.
Friedman Recycled Bath House
Outdoor shower made of recycled windows, doors & clawfoot tub. The water feeds into the garden, and it’s ideal for moonlight baths.
Handmade Amphibious Craft
Inspired by my sister Marie, who makes her own boats to navigate the waterways of NY. Built of plywood & 2by4s, this craft was later transformed into a Sarcaphogus sculpture by the art collective DEARRAINDROP for their show at the Deitch Gallery in 2004.
