Carpentry runs in the Weiss family and Derek is proud to be the face of Home Dimensions and WeissWorks a locally based millworks company.
Derek's father created the original Home Dimensions in Connecticut, and due to his early passing, the business had to close, but Derek never forgot how many lives his father changed with his talent and passion. Throughout his childhood and into his adult years Derek discovered he carried the same passion and talent for carpentry that his father and grandfather before him had. After moving to Michigan, Derek decided to follow in his Father’s footsteps and created Home Dimensions Custom Carpentry.
His vision was to bring a Design Build firm to the public that revolutionized the industry and created a positive experience for the home owner. His motivation is to create a peace of mind to the client and create beauty in their home.
When you schedule a consultation with our team, Derek will be there to help guide you, review your project details and provide inspiration.
