Pat and I are so fortunate to have hired you for our deck. Your talent and expertise is above and beyond any project that we have done in our entire house.


It took us 5 years to find someone to build us a deck off of our kitchen through the use of our french doors. We have had 2 other deck companies, an architect and an outside designer to come up with a plan that would work. None of the above gave us any solutions to our complicated setup. A mutual friend of ours introduced us to Bob. Our appointment was at 5:00. Bob was in my driveway at 4:50. If you have ever dealt with contractors you know this is a good sign.


Bob took a walk around our property and a look from the inside out. We discussed our needs and concerns. He took measurements and made another appointment to come back. Two days later he had laid out the measurements of how large our deck would be. Explained in detail the three entrance ways onto my property. Best place for the grill and table adding planters if wanted. Then he added something that set him a part from the other designers. Bob is an Artisan. He turns wood on a lathe and makes beautiful museum like pieces. He turned all the posts and railings. He showed us an example of his work. My next question to him was, When can you start? He recommend a Meranti wood be used. I have never heard of it before but he said it was most durable and didn’t require a lot of maintenance. He said when he was finished our deck would look like a piece of furniture in our back yard.


Bob gave us a start date, he was here that day. He was here every morning on time, worked in 95 degree whether. After two days into this project our family had to leave the state for a family matter. We totally trusted Bob and his company to complete the job. While we were away a friend of ours stopped by and called us right away to tell us how unbelievable the deck looked.


When we arrived home the deck was completed. It was beautiful. The Artisan detail that he added to our deck made such a statement. The size, color of the stain, to the baluster being turned slightly made such a difference. We have a one-of-a-kind stunning piece of furniture right off our kitchen. It is amazing how better the outside of our house looks. This spring he will be creating a pergola for my patio, building a built in closet for our bathroom and making custom cabinets for my butlers pantry.


We can’t thank you enough.

Pat and Jodi.

Bob Steenbock of Mountainside Woodcraft ran my complete master bath renovation project from start to finish, performing some of the work himself (framing, sheetrocking, etc.) and assembling an excellent team for other tasks. His supurb craftsmanship, integrity and work ethic are unmatched in my experience. He was always on time, always cleaned up after any work, always kept the project moving along, and always responded to my requests in a professional manner.

I had heard many stories of home remodeling projects that became nightmares, but my project was completed without a hitch. Without hesitation I would recommend Bob to anyone considering a renovation project.

I have been fortunate enough to have had Bob Steenbock fabricate and install a library for my children. May I say that his professionalism and attention to detail had not been matched by any other craftsman I have previously employed. Bob is the personification of craftsman and his mastery of woodworking skills holds a wide lead on his second place competitors. I have since employed Bob for the completion of some complicated wood turning projects and was amazed, but not surprised, by the artistry he exhibited. It goes without saying that I would not hesitate to use him for any other projects and I would highly recommend him for any project you may require.
