We are Councell Craftsmen, a father and son team bringing artistry and fine craftsmanship to the remodeling business in the Asheville area.

Councell Craftsmen’s beginnings are rooted in a passion for the trade. Owner, Danny Councell, has enjoyed working with his hands since his youth. He practiced various areas of construction such as plumbing, electrical work, framing, finish carpentry, woodworking, furniture making, tiling, kitchen and bathroom renovation, and roofing. From the foundation of the house up, Danny had an interest in understanding it all.

What began for Danny as a passion and side hobby eventually morphed organically into a successful small business in 2005, as small jobs for family friends soon drew attention to his high quality work. Word spread and Councell Craftsmen was born.

In 2014, Danny brought on his son-in-law, Brandon Kimball, as an apprentice and partner.

Brandon is a husband and father of three wonderful children. Since graduating Montreat College in 2005, he has been working in construction/remodeling and wilderness therapy. In April of 2014, he began working with Councell Craftsmen. He loves working with his hands and believes in serving clients with honesty and integrity by providing an unparalleled quality of work and craftsmanship.

Together, we seek to provide quality work for our client’s individualized needs within the goals of the client's budget. We approach each job with enthusiasm to bring your home dreams to life. From deck additions to custom-built entertainment centers, we adhere to a standard of quality that sets our work apart from many tradesmen. As artists, we enjoy opportunities to approach the work with curiosity, utilizing alternatives to standard materials where we can, combining function, design, and innovative techniques into the finished result.

We believe in small business and relish the opportunity it affords us to develop personal relationships with our clientele, better enabling us to meet your dreams for your home. That’s why Danny and Brandon together are a part of every detail of your remodel, from the first meeting, to the quote and obtaining of materials, to the labor, providing competitive service with a personal level of communication you may not find in larger operations. We value an efficient work environment and adhere to details such as immaculate site clean-up after each day on the job, and we strive for the least amount of impact on your day-to-day while the project is ongoing.

We are passionate about customer satisfaction, and that’s why we are passionate about doing the job right the first time, with creativity, and a beautiful finish.

We look forward to meeting and assisting you with your project!
