Can a furniture maker double as a builder?

By Jeff Frank

A good furniture maker will have many of the skills needed to build homes or other structures.

Several furniture makers I know of have built their own homes or shops.

  • But there are many aspects of building construction that they have to learn on the fly (or subcontract out to others with more knowledge and skill.)

Furniture makers are not qualified to be professional builders, working as independent contractors.

  • Aside from lacking some basic skills, they will not have required licenses or be aware of local building codes and regulations.
