Since its founding in 1993, Pine Street Carpenters has been committed to active community involvement. We support dozens of special events and non-profit organizations throughout the year. These organizations do incredible work in the community, and we are proud to partner with them. We invite you to learn more about the organizations we support and read about some of our ongoing community partnerships, including our own community outreach initiative: The 100 Wheels Project.
In December 2008, we launched The 100 Wheels Project, an annual community outreach initiative designed to provide disadvantaged children in the community with brand new bicycles for the holidays. Each year we partner with local non-profit organizations to identify specific children in need. We then purchase 100 unassembled bicycles and host a community bike-building party with our employees, families and friends, then deliver the bikes to our partner non-profits. To date, we have donated 962 bikes to deserving children for the holidays. To read more about this project and learn how you can support this annual event through a donation toward a bicycle, helmet, or bike lock, please visit bikebuild.org.
In 2008, Pine Street Carpenters was one of the lead sponsors of Tyler Arboretum’s exhibit, Totally Terrific Treehouses. Located in Media, PA, Tyler Arboretum is one of the oldest and largest arboreta in the northeastern United States, encompassing some 650 acres. As a sponsor of this exhibit, we constructed a replica of Henry David Thoreau’s cabin at Walden Pond. Pine Street Carpenters won the “Best Craftsmanship” award for the exhibit, and Thoreau’s Cabin is now a permanent fixture at Tyler Arboretum. Be sure to stop by Tyler Arboretum to visit the cabin and enjoy a fun-filled day in the woods! To learn more about Tyler Arboretum, visit tylerarboretum.org.
As one of the exhibitors in Tyler Arboretum’s special exhibit Nature’s Enchantment, Pine Street Carpenters partnered with the arboretum to launch The Tyler Arboretum Writing Project. Our exhibit, titled What Lies Beneath?, features a mysterious and unexplained door in the woods leading underground. Visitors to Tyler Arboretum are encouraged to answer the question “What Lies Beneath?” by writing a story or poem inspired by the exhibit. Submitted stories are collectively published at tylerarboretumwritingproject.com. We are thrilled to partner with Tyler Arboretum on this innovative community writing project and we invite you to participate. Visit Tyler Arboretum today … and get writing! Can’t make it to Tyler?

Over the years many of our carpenters have donated their time to Habitat for Humanity building projects throughout the country and abroad. In addition, Pine Street Carpenters regularly donates surplus and salvaged building materials to Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore in Coatesville, PA. Habitat’s ReStores sell used and surplus building materials at a fraction of normal prices, with the proceeds supporting the construction of local Habitat houses. For more information, please visit hfhcc.org.
We often make our kitchen showroom available free of charge to community groups, non-profit organizations, and school groups looking for a space to host a fundraiser or event. In addition, several local non-profit organizations with limited space resources make use of our conference room for their meetings. Does your organization or group have an event they’d like to host at The Kitchen Studio? We’re happy to help! Just drop us an email or give us a call at 610.430.3333, ext. 124, to learn more.
“Pine Street Carpenters was superb. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to conduct home renovations. The entire staff was extremely professional. Our carpenter showed up on time every morning ready to work and left the work site clean at the end of each day. I have a family of five and felt completely comfortable with the entire staff whether we were here or away from the house.”
Sandy S., West Chester, PA
“A top-notch outfit from the design phase through construction. During construction, they were courteous and neat. Straight talk, creative and great workmanship! If you have a wish list of what you are looking for in a home renovation contractor, this company of craftsmen excels in every category. I would definitely use them again.”
Bill S., West Chester, PA
“Pine Street Carpenters exceeded our expectations in nearly every category. From design to implementation, every step along the way was done with attention to detail, integrity, and the customer's best interests as the focus. They listened to us in the beginning and designed a kitchen that really worked for our family and what we needed. The attention to detail and craftsmanship displayed throughout the project was second to none. They will be the first people we'll call whenever we have a large project and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to someone else.”
Matt and Liz M., West Chester, PA
“From the artistically rewarding design process throughout the functionally perfect execution, our experience with Pine Street Carpenters was amazing. Our kitchen layout was challenging as was our artistic vision but the challenge was not only met but exceeded. We've been involved with the design for a while now, so it's always interesting to hear the comments from friends and family who come to visit. Everyone that sees our kitchen is completely blown away. and so are we. Thank you Pine Street Carpenters.”

Kudos to Pine Street!”
Jen R., West Chester, PA
“Pine Street provided a kitchen design and a total kitchen remodel with several projects in a laundry room and powder room. The project took the 5-6 weeks stated and started on time. They worked every day, leaving the work site clean at the end of the day. We are very pleased with all aspects of dealing with the company. The project stayed within our budget. Their strongest area is communication! Any slight change in plan, design or question we had, Sean either appeared or contacted us within an hour. Pine Street Carpenters are extremely easy to work with - starting with Bill on design - to final completion. We love the finished product!”
Chris R., Glen Mills, PA

Bill P., Chester Springs, PA
“Pine Street was great to work with. They are family owned and operated, and very well organized. We wanted a firm that would do beautiful work, and do it right. And we also wanted someone who could communicate with us in the way we wanted--email and text as well as phone. Pine Street did all of this. We get endless compliments on our new kitchen, master bath, and master bedroom.”
Marianna S., Media, PA
“As an Architectural firm, we have worked with a lot of contractors and as a result we have seen good quality and poor quality construction. There are many projects that we have worked with Pine Street Carpenters, their work and staff is exceptional to say the least, they go out of their way to do a project right. They are at the top of our list for recommending any project that we may design.”
John Altemose, Arthur Altemose Architects
“Pine Street did our kitchen remodel this year and were consummate professionals from the initial consultation to the final walk-through. Their decades of experience working in kitchens came through as they guided us through (not so straight forward) floor plan changes and really understood the design concept we were going for. The quality was superb and I would not hesitate to use Pine Street for other home renovations and give them my highest recommendations. We are thrilled with our new kitchen!””
