Steven Slade, Director of Construction 
Construction has always been a way of life for Steve; he started by mixing mortar for his father’s masonry business. As co-founder of Modern Heritage, the breadth of Steve’s 30 years of experience spans from building custom cabinets to supervising the remodel of a historic mansion for The Classic Group. Steve’s expertise in construction and carpentry pairs well with his hands-on, personable approach. When he is not coordinating with tradesman, reviewing schedules with clients, or managing field crews, you will find Steve coping a difficult crown molding.

Andrew Brewin, Director of Production 
Andrew’s background in music set the foundation for understanding of how small details come together. While at the Berklee College of Music, Andrew spent summers working as a finish carpenter with a custom home builder in Marblehead and building boats on the side. It was then that he developed his love for detailed craftsmanship and understanding of fine carpentry. When Andrew opened his first company, his philosophy was to produce handcrafted cabinetry and millwork of the highest quality with the finest materials. As a co-founder of Modern Heritage, Andrew brings that same passion, knowledge, and high standard for excellence.
