Company experience and references are so important in choosing the ‘right‘ builder. But, if you really want to know a company’s foundation—it starts with the owner, Bruce Northcraft.

An Attention To Detail!

The owner, Bruce Northcraft, the baby of six in his family always enjoyed working side-by-side with his dad fixing things up around the house. In 6th grade, he chose his goal to be a carpenter and have his own business. In 9th grade, he paid for his own phone line from Bell Atlantic, to be installed up in his bedroom so he could get his messages and return calls. (His siblings were not giving him the messages!). To this day, 410-437-9516 is STILL his main business line.

Bruce grew up in Pasadena, by North Shore on the Magothy, off Shady Lane in a twelve-house community three miles back in the woods, on a dirt road. Lucky for him, as the only kid in the community, he welcomed the opportunity to cut neighborhood lawns six days a week. As the grounds keeper for Potapskut Sailing Association, each race day on the Magothy he prepped large sail boats for the race. Later, he helped his dad build their home on the waterfront, Black Hole Creek, just off the Magothy. His attention to detail and natural curiosity for learning how to build with his own two hands, a neighbor, Stewart Holmes allowed him to build a 23-foot wooden sailboat from the ground up. That building process married Bruce and the newly named, “Rolly Polly” for over nine years. At age 22, Bruce was given the boat for Christmas.

Immediately after his High School graduation, Bruce completed the mandatory 4-year Maryland State Apprenticeship with Associated Builders and Contractors. In 1990, he formed Northern Craft Construction, a home improvement and building company now known county-wide for not only the quality workmanship, but for the life long relationships built on the honesty and integrity that defines Bruce. Married for more than 30-years to his high school sweetheart, Chrisey, Bruce feels fortunate to share his compassion for his craft with two sons, Ryan 22 and Sean 19. The Northcrafts are still life long residents of Pasadena!
