Ellsworth Classics Garage

Rafe’s passion project and side hustle, Ellsworth Classics, has proven a need for its own space. With a rotating collection of vintage cars and trucks, he decided to keep it all close to home. The 1,500 square foot structure is an example of understated design and a modest budget.

Determined to revisit his life as a carpenter and builder, Rafe built this structure almost entirely on his own with occasional help from his teenage son and nephew. Nearly thirty years since his last full-scale, hands-on project, it proved to be strenuous, exhilarating, and thoroughly rewarding. It’s clear to the HC team that this project may have rekindled Rafe’s passion for building and they now fear what he has planned next.
