When Jim Knauf started swinging a hammer professionally, Gerald Ford was in the White House. Jim knows his trade inside and out, an old-school craftsman to the core. In Jim’s 19 years with Craftsmen, he has taken quality control to a new (slightly fanatical) level and instilled a gritty work ethic and a culture of “we’ll only settle for perfect” in our younger installers. Jim is the one we turn to when homeowners need custom carpentry done, Jim is the one we turn to. When he’s not working, you can find Jim cruising Minnesota’s highways atop his Harley, or spending time with his granddaughter.
