My passion for designing and building furniture began with my own home.  We had been looking for a bedroom set for some time and were not able to find something with the style we loved and quality that would last  so I came up with the crazy idea of  “hey why don’t we build one."  My husband being ever patient with my crazy ideas agreed.  I scoured Pintrest & found a couple of plans and then added our own twist to make it our own.  By the time we had completed our project, I was hooked and Handcrafted by Hulstein was born.


Why Us?


Each piece of furniture can be customized to make it truly yours. .  I can take your ideas and design that special piece that really reflects your personal style.  The finish, size and wood type are all up to you. 

What is your lead time on orders?


Lead time can really vary depending on how many orders I have booked on the schedule.  An average lead time for furniture pieces, is between 8-12 weeks.  For smaller décor pieces the lead time is usually less.  But if you have a deadline or date that you would like your order finished by please let me know at the time of order and I will do my best to work with you .

What is your returns policy?


Because every piece is custom designed and made we do not offer returns at this time.

Do you offer shipping or delivery?


We do not offer shipping via national couriers but we do offer a delivery service within 45 miles of our shop in Hull IA.  The delivery charge is $85.00.  Arrangements can also be made to pickup your order at the shop in lieu of using the delivery service.

How to place an order?


Orders can be placed thru the website by using the online shopping cart.  Use the color guide page to select your paint or stain colors and  note them in the order if applicable.  

Do you make custom orders?


YES! I love to work with individual clients to design something special for your home.  I can change dimensions on items on the site or if you have something completely different in mind I can work with you to draw up plans to the furniture of  your dreams a reality.


What type of wood do you use?


Most of the furniture pieces are made using kiln dried hardwood.  A high quality plywood may be used when applicable for example in the furniture backs or side panels.
