Join Hull Work’s founder Brent Hull and fellow building craftsmen for shop talk, beers, snacks. This Building & Brews event will focus on the Federal period in architecture (1780-1820). The years after the revolutionary war were filled with booms and busts for builders. We’ll look at the top builders of this period, like Samuel McIntire, and the rise of architects like Charles Bullfinch and Benjamin Latrobe. We’ll discuss great buildings and architectural millwork as well as the fine craft of carving and woodwork. If you want to know what the buildings and the craftsmen of the Federal period looked like, join us for this exciting lecture.

BRENT HULL is owner and founder of Hull Millwork. He is passionate about beautiful architecture and the art of timeless building. Brent enjoys working with his hands and has always loved building. In 1991, he moved to Boston to begin a 2-year study of historic preservation at the North Bennet Street School. NBSS is one of the oldest trade schools in the United States, and it was here that Brent learned the art of traditional building. Returning to Texas with his wife, they settled in Fort Worth and he soon opened his business in his brother’s garage, a 1911 bungalow. Over the next 23 years Brent has combined his passion for restoring buildings along with his love of craftsmanship to build a business that focuses on preservation as well as historically inspired houses and millwork. Brent enjoys life in Fort Worth and spending time reading anything he can get his hands on. He loves drawing and sketching for clients, but spending time with his beautiful wife and three kids dominates all other favorites.
Kuiken Brothers first worked with Brent Hull in 2010 to give our stock moulding collection a breathe of fresh air. After a year of research and discussions, the Classical Moulding Collection was born and today, it is one of the largest in-stock collections of classic American moulding profiles in the United States. Featuring over ninety historically-inspired moulding profiles, The KB Classical Moulding Collection represents classic American moulding profiles milled and installed in Georgian, Federal, Greek Revival, Colonial Revival, Craftsman and Shaker style homes, many from over 200 years ago. Readily available, these profiles are not only designed to simplify installation, but provide a truly custom look, unachievable for most until now. The collection includes a range of crown, casing, base, chair-rail and panel moulding.
