Who We Are

Company History

Founded on quality

Albrecht Wood Interiors was founded in 1989 by John Albrecht. His two brothers, Rick and Scott, joined him. They vowed quality would be the cornerstone of everything they did, and no matter what it took to do the job right, they would never settle for less.

At the age of 16, John began working in the construction business. He started by cleaning up job sites and moved up the ladder from framer to trim carpenter to custom cabinet builder. In 1989, he founded Albrecht Wood Interiors as a custom cabinet and trim shop. The company quickly grew and began taking on full remodeling projects, acting as the general contractor. Since then, Albrecht Wood Interiors has expanded to build full custom homes and continues to be one of the Dayton area's preeminent remodeling and custom cabinetry contractors.

In January of 2016, R.A. Rhoads became Rhoads Estate Homes and joined Albrecht Wood Interiors in creating a single, one-stop-shop for any high-end construction needs. With Rhoads Estate Homes focusing on custom homes and partnering with Albrecht Wood Interiors on all remodels and custom cabinetry work, the partnership joined the only two nationally recognized design-build companies in the Dayton area. With both companies thriving on a quality driven mindset, it was a natural pairing that has continued the legacy of both companies.

Our Team

Commitment to craftsmanship

Albrecht Wood Interiors has always been a family company, with Rick and Scott still building high-quality cabinetry and furnishing woodwork. In addition to Rick and Scott, the team has grown to include Jeff Groleski, who epitomizes the Albrecht values of quality and craftsmanship after working as a trim carpenter for over 40 years.

Joining the team as the next generation to learn the skills necessary to continue the legacy of craftsmanship that the company was founded on, are John’s sons, Brian and Chris Albrecht—along with Jeff Kern and Elizabeth Fig. Through it all, the office manager Cathy Miller keeps the team organized, helps to keep us moving in the right direction, and most of all, puts up with everyone on a day to day basis.
