The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street is proud of our commitment to and involvement in the local community. Simply stated, it is part of who we are and what we do. We recognize our responsibility to give back to the community and actively partner with charitable organizations throughout the region. In addition to sponsoring organizations and their events, we also open up our showroom to the community for fundraisers, programs and other events.
We invite you to learn more about the organizations we support as well as our own annual service initiative, The 100 Wheels Project.
Each December, Pine Street Carpenters and The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street spearhead The 100 Wheels Project, a holiday giving program launched by Pine Street in 2008. With the support of customers and industry partners, we purchase 100 unassembled bicycles and join together for a festive bike-building party in mid-December. The bikes are then delivered to partner non-profit agencies in the local community who distribute these bikes to deserving children in their care. Since the program’s start, 962 local children have received brand new bicycles for the holidays from The 100 Wheels Project. To see videos from The 100 Wheels Project or to learn how to get involved, visit bikebuild.org.
We often make our showroom available free of charge to community groups, non-profit organizations, and school groups looking for a space to host a fundraiser or event. In addition, several local non-profit organizations with limited space resources make use of our conference room for their meetings.
Does your organization or group have an event they’d like to host at The Kitchen Studio? We’re happy to help! Just drop us an email or give us a call at 610.430.3333, ext. 124, to learn more.
The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street makes environmental stewardship a fundamental aspect of the way we do business. We are on the front lines of the remodeling and building industry, and as such we recognize the impact our decisions have on our planet. We take that responsibility seriously. Listed here are just some of the ways in which we make an ongoing commitment to the environment.
The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street is proud to partner with manufacturers who are committed not only to providing you with a high quality product built to last, but who are committed to the environment as well. All of our cabinet partners are ESP-certified (Environmental Stewardship Program) by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association, ensuring sound environmental management and sustainable practices.
Our designers keep abreast of the latest sustainable products and innovative technologies on the marketplace. Knowing the impact and benefits of countless products and materials goes a long way in maximizing energy efficiency and reducing a home’s impact on the environment and your budget. Our designers will work with you and our product partners to help you achieve all your remodeling goals, be it sustainable cork flooring, recycled glass tile, and everything in between.
The Kitchen Studio at Pine Street partners with Habitat for Humanity ReStores whenever possible. When remodeling your kitchen or bath, we often take salvageable items slated for the dumpster and donate these to one of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores. If you wish, this can include your old cabinets. Located in Coatesville and Kennett Square, Habitat’s ReStores sell used and surplus building materials at a fraction of normal prices, with the proceeds supporting the construction of local Habitat houses. Not only do salvaged materials find a second life in another home, but the funds raised from their sale supports the building of new homes! For more information on Habitat for Humanity of Chester County, please visit hfhcc.org.
Recognizing the importance of recycling building materials, our project managers take a proactive approach to recycling by integrating jobsite recycling into each remodeling project. From clean fill jobsite dumpsters to metal recycling, we make a concerted effort to keep building materials from making their way into a landfill.
“Pine Street Carpenters was superb. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking to conduct home renovations. The entire staff was extremely professional. Our carpenter showed up on time every morning ready to work and left the work site clean at the end of each day. I have a family of five and felt completely comfortable with the entire staff whether we were here or away from the house.”
Sandy S., West Chester, PA
“A top-notch outfit from the design phase through construction. During construction, they were courteous and neat. Straight talk, creative and great workmanship! If you have a wish list of what you are looking for in a home renovation contractor, this company of craftsmen excels in every category. I would definitely use them again.”
Bill S., West Chester, PA
“Pine Street Carpenters exceeded our expectations in nearly every category. From design to implementation, every step along the way was done with attention to detail, integrity, and the customer's best interests as the focus. They listened to us in the beginning and designed a kitchen that really worked for our family and what we needed. The attention to detail and craftsmanship displayed throughout the project was second to none. They will be the first people we'll call whenever we have a large project and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to someone else.”
Matt and Liz M., West Chester, PA
“From the artistically rewarding design process throughout the functionally perfect execution, our experience with Pine Street Carpenters was amazing. Our kitchen layout was challenging as was our artistic vision but the challenge was not only met but exceeded. We've been involved with the design for a while now, so it's always interesting to hear the comments from friends and family who come to visit. Everyone that sees our kitchen is completely blown away. and so are we. Thank you Pine Street Carpenters.”

“Pine Street provided a kitchen design and a total kitchen remodel with several projects in a laundry room and powder room. The project took the 5-6 weeks stated and started on time. They worked every day, leaving the work site clean at the end of the day. We are very pleased with all aspects of dealing with the company. The project stayed within our budget. Their strongest area is communication! Any slight change in plan, design or question we had, Sean either appeared or contacted us within an hour. Pine Street Carpenters are extremely easy to work with - starting with Bill on design - to final completion. We love the finished product!”
Chris R., Glen Mills, PA

“Pine Street was great to work with. They are family owned and operated, and very well organized. We wanted a firm that would do beautiful work, and do it right. And we also wanted someone who could communicate with us in the way we wanted--email and text as well as phone. Pine Street did all of this. We get endless compliments on our new kitchen, master bath, and master bedroom.”
Marianna S., Media, PA
“As an Architectural firm, we have worked with a lot of contractors and as a result we have seen good quality and poor quality construction. There are many projects that we have worked with Pine Street Carpenters, their work and staff is exceptional to say the least, they go out of their way to do a project right. They are at the top of our list for recommending any project that we may design.”
John Altemose, Arthur Altemose Architects
“Pine Street did our kitchen remodel this year and were consummate professionals from the initial consultation to the final walk-through. Their decades of experience working in kitchens came through as they guided us through (not so straight forward) floor plan changes and really understood the design concept we were going for. The quality was superb and I would not hesitate to use Pine Street for other home renovations and give them my highest recommendations. We are thrilled with our new kitchen!””
