Rainforest Custom LLC thanks community

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many wonderful people of Juneau. Rainforest Custom LLC has been open since mid-September and the results have been truly awesome. I could not be happier with the amount of business that has come through my door thus far.

First, thank you to my best cheerleaders, my family, without whom this business venture would never have come to fruition. Next to Bruce Abel, whose assistance and coaching along the way helped Rainforest Custom come to be. Ian Grant with the Small Business Development Center has been an invaluable resource. Thanks to James Brooks and the Juneau Empire for the amazing article on my start up; it has been a huge driver for business. I’ve also been supported by Elgee Rehfeld Mertz, LLC, City and Borough of Juneau, Kevin Dilg Esquire and the many business owners I talked with before even starting.

A huge thanks to the many friends that helped clean, tear apart, reorganize and paint the shop for a fresh new look. I could not have done this without all of you! I’ve also appreciated friends who have visited with gifts and to wish me well, and others from the community who have stopped by to donate wood and supplies to “a good home.” I have been overwhelmed by the community support.

In this very short time I have had the pleasure to meet so many wonderful people in this town. Every day I get inquiries from individuals about crafting custom pieces or requests to repair items that still have plenty of life in them. I look forward to a beautiful partnership with all customers of Rainforest Custom, LLC.
