Getting Crafty

Wood’n Dreams was founded based on a desire to create spaces that people wanted to come home to. And decades later, we’re proud to say that desire has become a reality for hundreds of customers.

“Very knowledgeable in all aspects of the project and very helpful with design and ideas. His team was respectful to our family and of our property. The work was done meticulously and I couldn't have asked for a better result. I love my new kitchen!”
— Patty D., Edison, NJ

And while Brian Fitzgerald founded Wood'n Dreams over 30 years ago, he's been a craftsman even longer. When he was only 13, he remodeled his own basement, using what he learned from working with other contractors in his own home. But, if it hadn't been for some parking tickets (ok, a lot of parking tickets), he may never have started his own business.

Tooting His Own Horn (Literally — read on…)

Brian went to Rutgers (Mason Gross) for classical trumpet performance, but as a commuter, it was impossible to find parking. Hence, the aforementioned parking tickets. He decided to trade his horn for a hammer and start honing his carpentry skills through adult classes at New Brunswick Vocational School, where parking was ample. Although hammer and saw are all business, trumpeting and martial arts remain a personal passion when Brian isn't hanging with his family.

Nailed it.

Now a licensed contractor, master craftsman, and creative kitchen designer, Brian prides himself on giving 110% to his customers and having unparalleled attention to detail. A few reasons Brian’s mom is proud:
Started Wood'n Dreams at the age of 20
Featured in Kitchen Design Magazine and on This Old House II
Remodeled a bathroom that no contractor said could be done

“Brian and crew were extremely knowledgeable, helpful and professional. They found a way to accommodate all of our requests. All work was completed as promised with no surprises. Brian was at our location each day either supervising or working along with his men. Finished work exceeded all expectations!”
— Sara K., East Hanover, NJ

The Softer Side.

When he's not helping customers improve their homes, you can find Brian skiing and kicking butt in karate and judo (that’s how he keeps his workers in line!). And don't worry — those parking tickets didn't stop his musicianship. He still plays the trumpet in the local Drum Corps.
Brian lives in Scotch Plains, NJ with his wife Tania, son Shawn, and their bearded dragon, Spidey.
