About Us

Swiss Carpentry Since 2007


My Name is Erik, i was born in Canada, to a Canadian father and a Swiss mother. As a family we moved to Switzerland in 1992, and I went to the swiss schools, and started my apprenticeship as a construction carpenter after 2 years a changed over too interior Carpentey/joinery. When I finished my Training/schooling with Swiss Government Diploma, I worked in various fields of installations, from kitchens, windows, interior cabinetry, and Service fixing in wood working etc., I decided to start my own business, as thought there were other oppurtunities out there for me. Throughout the years before starting my own business I completed various jobs besides being employed and gained extra experience, and invested having my own tools. As growing up in a Family owned home with 4 apartments, I became the guy to maintain the building of my family. From fixing, to renewing, painting, flooring, walls plastering, doors, etc.  I work on optimising the house to gain space, and maximise the usage, and have good ideas for design and visual, and usage made as easy as possible. 

Those experiences i made and knowledge i would like to share with you, so you can have the same pleasure in having a nice home.

With a passion for coming up with unique and outside-the-box ideas, while also experimenting with new processes and technique, you’re always in great hands with this creative and talented maker.

During Erik's training in becoming a carpenter, Erik started taking small jobs in the expat community from 2003,

from 2016 Erik started self-employment, and established Swiss Carpenter Gmbh in 2019.
