About us

Crafting carriage doors is our business

Beautiful cherry interior sliding carriage doors built by Evergreen Carriage Doors

Evergreen Carriage Doors® custom crafts authentic out-swing and sliding carriage doors and either sliding barn doors or swing out barn doors. It's not just a sidelight of our business, it is what we excel in.

Often typical garage doors present the ugliest aspect of the home. We are in the business of changing that. We believe that the beauty of a home enhances life for those who live within and for those who see it in passing. No matter where you live, Evergreen Carriage Doors can help change the way you look at your garage.

The history and passion of Evergreen Carriage Doors

Evergreen's principal designer and founder, Richard "Dick" Hampton, has always loved homes with a history. He formed Evergreen Carriage Doors, LLC in 2005, and began the tradition of excellence and personal service that characterizes the company today.

Unfortunately, Dick's passion for his work came to an end shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer. He passed away in 2011 surrounded by his loving family. Before that day came he handed his beloved business over to his friend and master door builder, Cory Stratton.

Who we are today

Working with wood has also been one of Cory's greatest passions since he was a teenager. Thus he has had years of experience in woodworking and carpentry. He now runs this family-based business in the beautiful Bitterroot Valley of western Montana. When he isn't hiking, biking, or camping in the majestic mountains that surround them, his total focus is on each and every door he builds, making sure that it receives the complete attention and meticulous craftsmanship that Evergreen Carriage Doors is known for.
