Welcome to gustin creative! We are so glad you stopped by. 


This business started as more or less a hobby to release my creative energy - and it just seems to keep expanding. I have always loved design and creativity...in fact, most people find it hard to believe that both my college and graduate school diplomas are in business!

Jon (aka "Gus") has an engineering degree from Virginia Tech and is the left brain part of our business, making sure the barn doors and other furnishings we build are solid, properly built and installed, and can stand the test of time (and kids, dogs, etc.).   

There are many ways we can help bring good, functional design into your space: from custom designed and locally-built barn doors, unique painted wood signs, and furniture redesign using paint, stain, & new hardware...to completely rethinking how your existing furnishings can work better for your life.

We'd love to chat with you about your own design ideas and how we can work together to make them a reality for your home or as gifts for friends and family. Feel free to contact us so we can begin designing together.
