Who We Are

Turning Houses into Homes since 2001

After earning an Environmental Science degree, Mike Andreyuk applied his University of Denver education to a pioneering green building non-profit in Atlanta.  For the next five years, Mike learned that a house is much more than just ‘sticks and bricks’: it’s a piece of history, a shelter from the elements, and a comfortable place to enjoy life.  That’s a delicate equilibrium; one that requires solid planning and sound maintenance.  Since 2001, Mike has honored Portland-area homes’ balance of roles with his blend of tested techniques and proven experience. In the process, Mike respects the original construction, strives to surpass the homeowner’s expectations, and gives abundant consideration to the environment. It’s tricky, rewarding work, which is exactly why Mike enjoys it so much.

Mike Andreyuk

Owner

ReCraft was born in 2004 from my passion for craftsmanship and rehabilitating old Portland gems. I’ve since grown to appreciate the value of not only delivering an amazing end result but also giving the client the best overall experience possible. When I’m not running a remodeling company, you will often find me hiking in the Columbia Gorge, skiing up on Mt. Hood, camping at the Coast, or something having to do with soccer.

Justin Kritzer

Production Superintendent

I have always loved putting the pieces together. Over the last three decades in the building trades, I have taken a few lessons to heart. People make the work rewarding, on both sides of the builder-client relationship. There is no substitute for loving what you do. Having been with Mike at Recraft since 2011, I have to say that this is the company I care about most out of all of the companies I have worked with over the years.

 

I have raised my daughter in Portland and feel so very lucky to live in this great city. I love doing jobs for repeat clients and re-visiting our past work. It is so satisfying to watch people's lives grow and ours along with them.

 

When I am not working, I may be found in the Bikram hot room or working on my 1922 bungalow...or on one of the numerous golf courses in the Portland area. 

Ivy Crouse

Project and Design Coordinator

As a certified kitchen designer, I enjoy working in residential remodeling for the opportunity to create comfortable, livable spaces that have a lifelong impact on families lives.  In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, hiking & kayaking. I also love salsa dancing, painting, and making art with my two young daughters. 

Jeremy Zahradka

Lead Carpenter

I am a maker at heart and thrive on learning the mechanics of how things work. After completing my undergraduate degree in psychology, I moved to Portland from North Dakota. I love remodeling homes because I get to help create new and refreshing spaces for people. After hours, I enjoy spending time with my wife and exploring Oregon on my dirt bike.

Timothy Murphy

Carpenter

My father was a carpenter, and because of this, I have been exposed to construction throughout my life and even helped remodel the home I grew up in at a young age. I love taking on new tasks, learning new skills, and seeing the results of projects as they reach completion. I am a team player and try my best to help out my team! I like to look on the bright side of things and bring a good attitude to the task at hand. 

 

Being outdoors always makes me happy. In my free time I enjoy cooking, brewing beer, archery, playing guitar (20+ years), drums, mixed martial arts, hiking, camping, gardening and spending time with my dog.

Carpenter

As a carpenter, I enjoy turning vision into reality and doing everything I can to bring excellence to my craft.

I find it exciting Recrafting old Craftsman style homes in Portland as it offers new daily challenges and creative ways to build. 

Originally from Oahu, Hawaii, I recently moved to the Pacific Northwest in 2019 for a new life adventure. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and exploring what Washington and Oregon have to offer. 

Acacia Steinberg

Bookkeeper and Office Manager

As someone who was born and raised in Portland, it is such a privilege to work for a company that values the individuality of the homes here as much as I do. I love my city and its uniqueness. On any given weekend, I am usually out enjoying all the things Portland has to offer, whether that be swimming down at the river, exploring trails in southwest, or trekking through downtown to experience the amazing food culture we have here!
