Burlee Original is a locally-owned family business. Scott, Cody, Waylon are the primary craftsman, Mary is the creative influence, and enjoys applying wood and wall finishes and Jessica manages online sales via Facebook.
Scott’s roots as an entrepreneur started at the age of 12 when his father bought him a woodworking router and a few sign making templates. He sold and crafted address signs to his neighbors. He worked in the family cabinet business starting at age 14, and then went on to be a timber faller and started a custom home business at age 19. By age 25 Scott and Mary had 3 children (Waylon, Cody & Jessica), and Scott decided to take a shot at at corporate path working as professional estimator based in San Diego, Las Vegas and Manhattan.
Scott worked on a variety of commercial construction projects ranging from under $5million to over $3billion, and over his 22 year career, he has experienced all aspects of large and smaller scale construction projects. This pathway of experience has led to Christensen Builders, LLC and Burlee Original as a means to parlay experience into more personal projects.
It is important for Scott to be hands on with every project, using his skills as a builder and craftsman. Cody and Waylon are the 7th generation of craftsman dating back to their ancestors in Copenhagen, Denmark. They look forward to passing the family trade to future generations.
Setting up shop in the Doylestown – Bucks County region has provided the Christensen enterprise access to pristine hardwoods that allow for limitless creativity for custom furniture and family heirloom projects.
