He keeps busy working on various building projects at home, most recently a bedroom addition, an art studio and a wood-fired barrel sauna. A member of the Ravenhill team for nearly twenty years, Credence is experienced in all aspects of home building and project management.

Orion Powell
Orion Powell
Island born and a second generation Ravenhill carpenter, Orion's father Eric Powell has nearly 40 years with the company. An avid sailor with an interest in restoring classic wooden boats, Orion studied at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Townsend, Washington. On the edge of town Orion built his family home and is the father to three active young boys. He is usually found working on projects that spread joy, whether it is building pet homes and other crazy creations with his kids or a deck for a friend. Once in a while he takes a break and enjoys slowing down on Johns Island. With so much history with Ravenhill, he is truly proud and feels privileged to be a part of this custom home building team.
Peter Kilpatrick
Peter Kilpatrick
Ravenhill's founder Peter Kilpatrick always knew he wanted to build. Growing up he was famous for his use of challenging materials in an endless series of forts, a steel framed dome and later his recycled wood island cabin. A growing family and the need to express his developing architectural vision found Pete building his 'big' house when a fire destroyed his cabin. A few years later Ravenhill Construction was founded. Pete and his wife Becky have made significant contributions to the island community. Pete is a member of the Board for The Community Home Trust and is a member of The San Juan Initiative, which looks for solutions to clean up Puget Sound. Pete is continuing on alongside the new owners of Ravenhill on an as-needed basis in an advisory consultant role.
