Established in 1980, Hiltz Design Inc. is known best in the local area for the custom commercial renovations done at Bear Creek Mountain Resort and The Buckeye Tavern. Paul Hiltz - owner and master craftsman is the man behind these and many other great projects. Down to earth best describes him, yet his enthusiasm and creative mind will fill your soul!
His experience in woodworking started as a ship's carpenter on the Richard Henry Dana Grand Banks Fishing Schooner in Boston, MA. From there he moved on to focus on cabinet making and period restoration for residential homes in the Boston area. Each of his projects is completely custom, working in many styles from Art Deco to traditional woodworking based on his clients needs.
If his custom work isn't enough, he spends his free time creating furniture and interior design items from reclaimed wood that he has collected over the years. In order to feed his appetite, Paul purchased a saw mill 15 years ago which has provided the ability to build quite an extensive inventory of reclaimed barn beams and plank boards. Most recently he has launched a line of products utilizing reclaimed wood from a barn built in 1812. Each piece he creates is signed by the artist and documents the age and location of the original farm. The wood itself predates the barn by 200+ years, so that means these trees were around in the 1600's. Now that's pretty cool!
. . . it's all the buzz!
We are extremely excited to be the local source for Hiltz Design products and look forward to providing you some of the most creative and best made items you will find anywhere. And if we don't have exactly what you need - Paul will create it. He is committed to building custom products for us and our customers! For now, he keeps rolling up with new items - I don't think he ever sleeps! And, if you're in need of custom work at your home or business he would be happy to take that on as well. Our next step is to get his beautiful wife Lisa to work with us too. An established artist in her own right, with a little encouragement we hope to have her here soon. At the very least, I know she and their dog Chip help Paul on a daily basis back at their mill. Welcome Paul!!!!
