The Biograghy of Patrick Carley

Growing up in a small town makes a good carpenter. Patrick Carley was raised in Sharon, Connecticut, a wonderful small farming community with a tremendous amount of history. Part of that history is his family. His great grandfather, John Carley and his uncle Don Carley were very well known in Sharon for their carpentry skills building furniture, homes and barns.


Patrick grew up with building in his brain. At age nine, he created his first four level tree house, of which included a secret bomb shelter and a viewing deck on top. As he grew into his teens, he really took interest in the arts and one of those was wood working. Attending Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village Ct. Patrick took many courses in carpentry and architectural drawing under the instruction of Paul Padua who always pumped him with positive reinforcement. After graduating from high school, Patrick joined the United States Navy to become a Hull Technician, which is known in the military as a ship fitter or jack of all trades. He was stationed onboard the USS Coral Sea from 1982 to1985  in the Repair Division, where he honed his skills in welding, pipe fitting, sheet metal fabrication, fire main maintenance, damage control and of course, carpentry.


After receiving an honorable discharge from the Navy, Patrick moved to Central Florida where he started his own window cleaning business. The business was a success but Patrick wanted to do something more creative with his life. So he sold his business and went to acting and broadcasting school. He enjoyed doing both but it wasn't paying the bills. He then landed a job building fine furniture using exotic and traditional hardwood lumber. After two years of building and finishing furniture, he was eager to get out of the shop setting. He was not sure how his talents would take him outside until one day a  neighbor asked him to build a multilevel deck, he replied why of course.


That was the start of Patrick Carley's Outdoor Wood Crafting in 1997 and it just kept getting bigger. Patrick started designing new styles of decks, pergolas, trellises, and even outdoor showers. His work has been featured in many periodicals including Remodeling Magazine, the Orlando Sentinel Sunday Magazine and has also been featured in television  commercials and in major motion pictures.
Patrick is still in the business of building some of the finest works of art you have ever seen. His reputation is one of dedication to his craft and customer satisfaction.
