Woodenbox is a full service design build management team. 

We are happy and ambitious, we are fun and honest, we are even funny.  We plan and think for you and we take the stress out of managing renovations, construction and remodels. We have been coordinating with contractors and builders in the Philadelphia area for over 20 years, this is our life. We Also have a passion for design and an eye for unique transitions that make collaborating exciting rather than overwhelming. 

Let's have a beer or coffee and think together. Anytime! 


Design - Woodenboxllc is a licensed design build company with Passive House certification. We offer design solutions to creating ground up projects, build outs, remodels, renovations and the like. We will consult and collaborate with you, shop with you, hang with you, until it's right! 

Build - Kurt Schlenbaker is a third generation builder from Lancaster Pa. He has a degree in design and architecture from Temple U. and has been designing and building, renovating and restoring Philadelphia buildings and homes for over 20 years. Woodenbox has some of the best partnerships with independent contractors in the area. We are proud of what we do and who we are. 

Resourceful - Woodenbox is thrifty and scrappy! We love digging up special elements and vintage or antique finds and incorporating them into your project. Have some interesting elements you want converted? We can do it! We love finding cool stuff too and can offer found objects as a service. 

Fabrication - We have a 3000 sq foot fabrication shop to make stuff! The value of space is underrated in Philadelphia- there is no shortage of big abandoned warehouses and we snagged one for our make space. We also have friends that use the space too- currently we are sharing our space with CGDB llc Chris Golan, a concrete guru who fabricates beautiful custom concrete countertops and surfaces! We can offer his services as well. 

Lifestyle - We live, breath, and think design-build. Kurt and Ashley are both creative collaborators and tinker with thoughts about materials and processes for fun! We love to imagine possibilities and realize them with clients. We also love to help manage projects. It's what we do. It's who we are.
