We began with partnership in mind. Knowing that there needed to be a seamless relationship between cabinetry, furniture, and millwork, this division of Van Son Construction was developed. The skillful blending of design, functionality, and beauty to create something with great meaning. Within this, life shaping truths formed that guide our work.
There is no work that needs to be done that is unimportant. We ensure the highest level of quality in every custom build. Each piece hand-crafted with care and attention to the smallest of details.
Located in Nevada County, California we have settled into a 6000 sq ft location allowing us the ability to keep up with the current and forecasted demand.
As we continue to expand, we have been able to care for the needs of other local contractors, providing a quality product fitting “their” client’s needs. The ability to offer in-house product finishing has allowed the opportunity to service the home remodeling market of kitchen and baths. Being able to install a finished product without major impact to the clients occupation of residence during construction has been invaluable.
The Last Nail carries with it the same commitment Van Son Construction has demonstrated in it’s 30 year history.
Product Development Manager & Operations Manager
The Last Nail
Early in my life it became evident that I enjoyed working with my hands while working with my dad around the house. One of my most significant accomplishments was constructing a 5 ½ foot tall sawhorse before the age of 10. The height of the sawhorse was impractical but well built.
Following my pursuit of a baseball career after graduating high school, I attended Chico State. Coming to the understanding that life is bigger than sports, I looked for employment that would include working with my hands. After finding a construction company that modeled high standards in all areas, I began working as a laborer. This company was Van Son Construction. Quickly I was recognized for being highly detail-oriented, focused towards the finer and finishing elements of a custom home project.
In addition to filling a variety of roles for Van Son Construction from 2003-2014, I also acquired a General Contractor license in 2010.
After receiving significant training as a cabinet maker, there was an opportunity in 2013 to oversee all day-to-day operations for The Last Nail.
I enjoy the partnership with clients to see their desires achieved, and bring order and clarity to the client and team members for the execution of the project. The Last Nail has grown significantly under my guidance.
I have been married to my wife Michelle since 2004, and have three children.
Whether I'm creating a beautiful personalized piece for someone’s home or cheering on my kids at their activities, I do everything with great purpose and intentionality, knowing that it all has meaning.
