Welcome to my property preservation page, my name is Keith Groves and I am a second generation custom wood worker/carver with 45 years experience in residential homes, ranches, corporate planning, building and repairs.

My specialty is custom cabinets design/installation but I also hold a masters electrician license and have spent many years working on 3.5 million dollar homes as a lead carpenter ensuring proper code was met during installation processes. As such, you can be sure any job I perform for you will meet or surpass code and safety requirements. I am also a retired bull rider and horse trainer, you can read more about my rodeo career on my biography page
