About Us

Justin Schmidt is a Rochester native and graduate of the School for American Crafts at RIT.  His career in masonry began with the conservation of the lions at the New York Public Library in Manhattan.  Shortly after moving back to Rochester in 2012, he met Pat and they forged a strong friendship and working relationship.  

Justin's experience goes beyond masonry; he studied jewelry design and metalsmithing at RIT, creates his own furniture and lighting, and served two years as a project manager at an interior design firm.  On the job, Justin brings a sharp eye for detail, and an intimate understanding of how something should look and feel.  He is keen on current design trends and has a passion for preserving our region's history.
