The Rock Paper Hammer team is made up of a close-knit circle of like-minded makers:


The team is lead by founders Derek Paprocki and Emily Fisher Paprocki.

Derek and Emily met in architecture school at Ball State University, and found that they shared similar interests in collaborative design/build projects and sustainable practices. This interest is what took them to San Francisco immediately after graduating where they stayed for more than a decade building their skills working with award winning firms.

In 2008, with two young children, they moved to Louisville to be closer to family-- not necessarily expecting a large market for what they loved doing. They bought a house in Crescent Hill and began a total renovation and addition to make it their own, and through this process began to build a network of like minded craftsmen, contractors, and suppliers in the Louisville area. What began as a personal project ended up connecting them to a network of colleagues and interested clients. Eventually this turned into the thriving Rock Paper Hammer.

Think we might be a good fit?
