Restoring the character of our past

There is serious passion around our legacy of renovation projects. These are the projects that build craftsmen as much as they are the projects built by craftsmen.

Being skilled in renovation work requires a strong understanding of how these relics were constructed. Knowing how to accurately estimate and plan for their reconstruction is an art that comes best from decades of experience. These tangible differences in the Rafn team will be visible from the start. We can reliably predict the surprises you can expect during construction and in turn, the true end cost of your restoration project with confidence.
