historic preservation done right


Located in Olympia, WA, Wilder Woodcraft is dedicated to preservation & sustainability in the Puget Sound area.


Years of field experience and research of historic methods and sustainability led to the conception of Wilder Woodcraft in January of 2016. Since then, preservationist Steven Michener has been helping folks around the Puget Sound to uncover the beauty of their historic homes.

Here at Wilder Woodcraft, we use only the finest preservation techniques to ensure that your project is accurately restored from the inside out. We use traditional, time-tested methods and provide you with end results that last for generations. We are WA State Lead RRP certified and take safety very seriously. We are licensed, bonded, and insured in the state of Washington. 

We also offer newly built wooden features, such as fully operational storm windows, staircases, and architectural details to match the existing features of your historic home.
