About Chelsea Paint & Carpentry

BrownsHistory regarding the owner, Doug Brown – 1976-Current
After acquiring his A.B.A. degree in 1967, serving in the Vietnam War and finally getting his A.B.S. degree in Marine Technology, Doug and his wife headed for Brazil. There he worked laying underwater pipeline for the Brazilian government. He returned to the states in 1973 (New Orleans, La.) to continue his diving trade in the oil field business. Shortly after relocating to Louisiana, Doug had his first son, Jonah. In an effort to spend more time on-shore with his family, Doug found it necessary to switch careers.

In 1974 Doug joined a group of contract painters to hone his painting skills. He quickly moved on to self-employment and established “Doug Brown, Contractor” later that year. Initially, Doug did maintenance and renovations on commercial, residential and rental properties. His skills grew to include sheetrock hanging and finishing, extensive carpentry, plumbing and electrical work, roofing, and concrete work.

As business grew, so did his family. Doug had four sons and one particularly awesome daughter, who spent their summers working for dad. While three of his sons have worked with him on an as needed basis, his eldest (Jonah) is committed to a long-term partnership and has brought with him a more modern approach to doing business. His business savvy coupled with Doug’s traditional professionalism has made them a dynamic duo.

Today, Chelsea Paint & Carpentry (now a licensed builder) has expanded further by forming a partnership with Arbor Masonry, Inc. This venture will create more opportunities in building from the ground up, given the additional manpower and experience now available to the team.

“This note is to express our thanks to Chelsea Paint and Carpentry and to recognize a job well done. Jonah and his father did a great job with painting our living area, installing new lighting, and constructing a faux beam for our living room. They were very professional and at the end of each day they left the room spotless (we have had other contractors who left the area a disaster until the job was completed). On a final note, they say that a dog is a true judge of character. Our 110 pound dog ,Wrigley, loved these guys. He would sneak in a few licks when they were painting the low areas and hung out with them most of the day. We would recommend Chelsea Paint and Carpentry and we are planning on calling them again for an outside project when the snow melts.”

“Recently I had my kitchen renovated and needed to have it painted. I hired Chelsea Paint & Carpentry to help me out. They were very prompt, arriving on time as expected, very professional and helpful with suggestions when I had painting problems. I was very pleased with their work and I could not be happier with my kitchen. I would recommend that anyone needing work done to contact them.”
