SCOTT REED, owner & master craftsman

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Scott grew up around carpentry, painting, sewing, electrical work, cabinet making, and wooden boat restoration. His grandparents were an ongoing example of the joy of working with your hands. Scott’s early years fostered a deep curiosity, sense of creativity, and lifelong confidence that anything can be designed and built.  

At age 12, Scott bought and restored his first wooden boat, launching a nautical passion which continued into graduate school, where he began shifting his craft toward custom van building. He is trained in marine cabinetry & restoration and is an ABYC certified marine electrician.

Outside the shop, Scott is avid sailor, surfer and skier. He has been driving camper vans for two decades and sailing for nearly four. Through these experiences, he has cultivated a strong working knowledge of the materials and designs that optimize small, mobile spaces.

If you can’t find him in his shop building out a van or boat, odds are that he’s out enjoying his own.
