Our History

Creative Wood Products was started in 1986 by Dennis Schaefer.

Under Dennis’s leadership, the next 23 years the Company grew into one of the premier deck building and outdoor living specialists in Michigan.

At the end of August 2009, Dennis moved on to other business endeavors. He transitioned the construction/installation side of Creative Wood Products over to Steve Darby, who was with the Company for over 20 years.

Since then, Steve has continued striving to maintain and improve the high standards of quality and customer service that Creative Wood Products was founded on and continues to be well known for.
