Acanthus Construction

Durham's Premier Renovation Contractor


All About Us

Since 2005, Acanthus Construction has been Durham's premier home renovation company.  Specializing in old home renovations and fine carpentry, Acanthus brings expertise, experience and excellence to all of their projects.


Project Portfolio

Expertise.  Experience.  Excellence.

From foundation repairs to custom cabinetry, Acanthus brings craftsmanship and professionalism to any home project.


Custom Carpentry

We are carpenters.  We manage projects, but, at heart, we are craftspeople who enjoy creating.


We specialize in working with the historic fabric of homes to seamlessly add living space.  Whether milling moldings to match historic casework or matching new windows to old, we bring attention to detail and extensive experience to every part of the project.

Bathroom Renovations

Bathrooms require special attention whether the house is old or new.  Replacing old plumbing and tile while in the middle of living space mandates careful coordination and significant experience with bathroom remodels . We work hard to deliver not only a beautiful finished product, but a good experience along the way.

Kitchen Remodels

Kitchens are the most stressful of all home remodeling projects.  In the heart of the family living space and central to every homeowner's lifestyle, kitchen projects require careful scheduling and diligent supervision to make them painless.  We have the dedication and experience to bring your vision to life.

Built-In Cabinetry

Adding built-in cabinetry can feel like expanding the room.  We work across a wide range of styles and materials to design and build custom built-ins that fit your house, your ideas, and your needs.
