Andrew Edwards founded Standard West Builders (SWB) in 2004. It has since grown into a firm that provides custom home, ADU, addition, commercial, and residential remodeling services. The firm’s signature style integrates craftsman architectural features into its projects. In doing so, SWB also salvages old materials to repurpose them into projects as much as the design allows. Additionally, clients can also take advantage of design or architectural services at SWB.

The Fowles Street project was built for a young newlywed couple who wanted to expose the wood features of their home. SWD sandblasted the high ceiling beam and stained new beams and existing wood to accomplish this goal. The firm then installed new double-pane low UV glass in the west-facing wall to create large windows that overlook the nearby canyon. In the kitchen, SWB used reclaimed materials and a matte gold finish. The master bedroom has the firm’s signature custom-milled reclaimed live-edge barn door.
