Scott Edgett

President and Project Coordinator

“Building has been my passion since I was a little boy,” says Scott. “I remember when I was in high school and the guidance counselor told my parents, “This kid is a genuine carpenter — this is what he has to do.” And it worked out pretty well.

Prior to partnering with Kyle Schadt and reinvigorating North Fork Woodworks, Scott ran his own successful contracting firm, following years of apprenticeship with other East End builders. These days Scott works mostly behind the scenes applying both his passion and experience to managing the business side of North Fork, and coordinating the company’s many projects. Still, you’ll see him on-site nearly every day. Why? Because he loves it.

“These days, everything seems so money-oriented,” says Scott. “But I think any successful businessman started out with a passion for the work — that’s so important.”

“We feel a real need to serve once we’re out the door. We strive to really accommodate our clients — it’s the way we live our lives, and it comes across in our work.”

Kyle Schadt

Vice President & Senior Project Manager

“I just want to build The North Fork house, you know? Really capture what a Real North Fork Home is,” says Kyle Schadt, co-owner of North Fork Woodworks. “Really high-quality, smaller homes with a lot of Craftsman and New England influences — the kind of places that wear in, not out — and get better over time.”

As a Fourth-Generation carpenter whose father founded the company, Kyle took nothing for granted and apprenticed for years with notable construction firms on both the North and South Forks before finally opening his own contracting firm. “I learned that you’ve always got to take care of the customer. One of my first big jobs came from a client who was taking a chance on me, a younger guy, so I put everything I had into it, and it came out great. We got a bunch of great jobs as a result, and we were off and running.”

As his business grew, Kyle realized he needed more seasoned help, and partnered with Scott Edgett to form North Fork. “It worked out great — we really complement one another, and both really care about the work.”

“It’s a great feeling to deliver a house. We didn’t just slap it together; every little corner’s been gone over. We take it seriously — it’s where people live, it means a lot to them, and we’re proud of what we do.”

We Build Great Homes for Great Clients

The North Fork Approach

The North Fork Tradition of using time-honored techniques and superior craftsmanship to produce the finest carpentry serves as the foundation for everything we do. We apply this approach to the latest materials and methods to create truly unique and personal homes that stand the test of time.

Case Studies

Although every project is unique, there is a common thread to our work: We always value quality over size and no detail is ever overlooked. Most importantly we recognize that our relationships with our clients are integral to our success, and always make sure to put them at ease throughout the entire process.

Gallery

At North Fork, we’ve had the honor of working on many, many projects over the years. Although all have been diverse and challenging in their own unique ways, one common theme runs through all: For us, and each and every client, the vision, process and finished result is deeply personal. View selected photos of many of those experiences here.
