About Us

Cape Cod Lighthouse Newel and Staircase Maker Builder

We are proud to be a family run business located in the village of Bass River, Massachusetts on beautiful Cape Cod.

Richard Pelletier has been designing and building custom staircases, cabinetry and nautically influenced custom millwork on Cape Cod for over 25 years, dba Bass River Carpentry.

Our lighthouse “lightbulb” moment came when Richard was asked to incorporate a lighthouse newel post into a staircase he was building.  It was a simple pre-fabricated lighthouse style post.  Although Richard loved the idea of the post, it lacked the quality and refinement that is deserved as a focal point of any home.  He knew he could produce something better.

Using our 8’ lathe at the shop, his fine art background and desire to produce a unique high-quality product, Richard began hand-turning lighthouse newel posts.

Richard, along with his business partner and wife Julie, have been working closely with clients for over 25 years, producing hand-drawn architectural renderings and crafting the highest quality lighthouse stair newel on the market.

We have expanded our capabilities to include details such as illumination, sounds, siding texture, windows, entryways and more. We also offer other architectural details; post caps, custom carvings, turnings, nautical balusters and are always excited to take on the challenge of a new and different project. Richard’s fine arts background, drawing, and design skills are a perfect fit for creating these pieces.
