Eight Penny Nail (8d) is a commonly used nail size in carpentry and construction. Historically penny sizes referred to the price for a hundred nails. The letter “d” comes from the name of the Roman coin which was similar to a penny, denarius. We still use this method when referring to nail sizes and we wanted to honor this long tradition by including the “d” with the logo.

Megan communicated promptly and updated us often. Attention to detail and care for our house were always obvious and greatly appreciated. She is organized, neat, and meticulous, all of which shows in her work."
