Meet our Brother, you're Going to Love Him.

So, as you probably know, we are The Corbel and we do all things antique. Whether it be antique doors, corbels, architectural salvage, home decor, or custom furniture you are looking for, we are the place for you. It is our goal to help you make a house your home. What’s a better way to do that than getting the family involved? This family-run business is dedicated to meeting and exceeding all of your home expectations.

But enough about us, today we want to give you an official introduction to our brother company: Charlet Brothers Construction. We are very close and love collaborating on projects together to give each of our clients the home of their dreams.

We’ve teased you before with bits and pieces of Charlet Bros. work, but today you are in for a real treat. We have created a virtual portfolio, just for you! With us, it’s all about the details, and whether you are interested in building or remodeling, we’ve got you covered. So without further ado, sit back, relax and enjoy the eye candy.


At Charlet Brothers Construction, we are here to make your dream home into a reality. If you can dream it, we can build it. From traditional to contemporary and everything in between, we do it all.


We absolutely LOVE the fabulous, rustic interior of this Charlet Brothers build. This truly is the house The Corbel built. Everything from the light fixtures, to the flooring, to the bead board ceiling were provided by us. What about those gorgeous shutter doors and the beams? Yup, we have those too. “Where can I get a custom hood vent like that?” you may ask. The answer is HERE, at The Corbel!

Notice that stunning center piece of an island; it once was a store counter in a french shop. How cool is that? We always have a changing stock of architectural salvage, so come in and see us for all of your antique needs. You too can have a piece of history in your home.


Check out this unique combination of rustic and modern! This island was another antique find from an old french shop. Can you say ooh la la?

Once again, The Corbel was the source for the lighting, antique cabinet doors, beautiful floors, and decorative pieces. Are you starting to see a pattern here?

That sleek custom mantle and those shelves were designed by Don, the owner of Charlet Brothers and The Corbel. We do all types of custom furniture and would love to help you with all of your custom furniture needs.

Remember how we said that we do ALL styles? Well here is our proof. These homeowners wanted a retreat that brought the outdoors in, and all we can say is wow! The clean lines and mid-century modern styling really make this home one-of-a-kind. As you can see, Charlet Brothers is not your cookie cutter construction company, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Who wants something that everyone else has? Not us! Let us help you in creating your own unique home, but be prepared……your neighbors might get jealous.

This home turned out absolutely STUNNING, and we can’t get enough of it. This traditional style beauty is all about the details. These homeowners had been collecting their own antique treasures to incorporate into their new home long before they began the building process with us, and they did a fabulous job. Some of our customers like to be very involved in the building and design process, others prefer for us to make all of the decisions down to the hardware. Whatever your preference, Charlet Brothers will ensure that the details are not overlooked and that your vision is achieved. It is, after all, the details that make a house into a home.

Already have the perfect home, but you just want to change it up a bit? Have no fear, Charlet Brothers is here to help you with your remodel!


This was actually a remodel/addition. These clients wanted to add onto the existing house in order to make this a functional home for their family. The wood flooring, ceiling, and beams are all antique wood and came from…..yup, you guessed it: The Corbel. Absolutely love that light fixture above the island? Yea, we do too, and we would be happy to help you pick out the perfect light fixtures for your space.

On another note, how wonderful would it be to drive home in the evening from a long day at work and call this home? We’d sure love to.


This kitchen remodel was a complete success! We transferred this once dark kitchen into a bright and modern space where everyone will want to gather. You probably already know this, but just in case you haven’t caught on yet, the corbels, beams, floating shelves, and lighting are all available here at The Corbel.

As you have already seen, Charlet Brothers does an upstanding job on home builds and remodels, but they are in no way limited to just that.

This barn is a total beauty, and we may or may not envy the animals that get to stay there. After all, the horses need a nice place to sleep too, right?

No matter what type of project you are interested, Charlet Brothers will not disappoint. Come visit us at The Corbel to get started today!
