Joel Fraley, Owner and Principal Designer
With over 30 years of experience in design and construction, Joel’s seen it all. Starting out as a carpenter’s helper on an addition to his childhood home, he worked as a framing and finish carpenter before shifting to custom furniture design and running his own wood shop. Since 2006 he’s been designing remodels, custom homes, retail displays and custom furniture for clients throughout the American West. His extensive construction background gives him a unique insight into the design and construction process from beginning to end. He would rather be outside.
Michele Fraley, Owner and Director of Operations
Michele handles the business side of the company. She is the true "brains of the operation". Her military family upbringing, degree in Economics and years working in big corporations make her the task master of the family. When she’s not working, Michele likes to tinker in the garden, walk with neighbors, attempt cooking and has been volunteering with disabled veterans at an equine therapy barn for years.
Nicole Adair, Senior Designer
Before moving to Portland and joining F+C, Nicole spent years working and volunteering as an art educator in the Midwest. Instructing others on how to recognize and create good design sparked her interest in taking the reins to develop the entirety of a space, both its interior movement and its aesthetic elements.
Nicole brings her love of creating beautiful textural and color combinations, an incredible attention to detail, commitment to promoting handmade and artisan elements, and her passion for learning the incredible quirks of the humans she works with. She has cats and daughters, will probably integrate one or all of them into conversation, and hopes you do the same.
Lucy, Director of Security
Lucy relocated to Portland from Baja Mexico as a puppy. Our resident morale booster, her favorite parts of the job are site visits and greeting visitors. When she’s not at work she enjoys long walks, swimming and barking.
