What sets us apart from other General Contractors?

I’m glad you asked. We believe that one of our greatest assets is our in-depth building experience. As a general contractor, we have been in business for over 37 years and while there is always more to learn; we have successfully completed countless projects and have developed a wealth of practical experience. We employ a committed full time crew of skilled carpenters, electricians, & plumbers and are fully capable of tackling every facet of construction from the ground up.

We believe in doing things right the first time and have built a reputation on it. There are many variables in construction, and for a successful outcome, it is vital for things to be done correctly and in the right order. With the constraints of time, money and weather, its easy to see why there are so many stories of building projects gone wrong. Often sound construction practices require a certain level of attention and patience. We feel that taking the time to make sure things are right from the beginning is well worth the effort, and in the long run pays dividends.

We focus on creating honest, open and healthy communication. Our ultimate goal is a satisfied customer, and our work is done only when it has met or exceeded your expectations. To that end, we strive to empower you with the experience and expertise essential for achieving your building goals, and look to partner with you in creating spaces that uniquely address your individual circumstances. As a general rule, we have come to find that the more involved our clients are in the process, the better the outcome. We take every opportunity to earn your trust and view clear communication as essential.

As a design & build company, we feel our additional design experience offers a wider perspective and increased flexibility.

Renovations & Additions

A renovation or addition provides an opportunity to adapt a space to your needs. We have come to find that with attention to detail and a little creativity, any space can be transformed from something less than ideal, into a reflection of the way you really seek to live.

  • Remodel by Residential Contractor
  • General Contractor Custom Remodel & Addition
  • Livingroom Addition by Local General Contractor

In order to ensure a deliberate look and seamless integration, successful renovations and additions require attention to detail and technical expertise. Often many of these decisions are only able to be made on site as conditions are uncovered and require both a good plan and an experience and committed crew of skilled workers. We believe Design & Build is ideally adapted to meeting these challenges. ^top of page^


  • Old Home Restoration
  • Old House Porch Restoration
  • Church Restoration by General Contractor

There is a great deal of value in the character and history of older buildings. Too often, the essential maintenance and upkeep required to keep them sound has fallen by the wayside. Additionally, uses and expectations change and older buildings often lack the conveniences of modern mechanicals and good accessibility. We are experienced with updating and restoring older buildings and believe that dedication to quality craftsmanship is essential to the process. Within the construction industry, there is a growing momentum that seeks to minimize labor costs by placing stress on quickly assembled prefabricated components. While there is definitely a logic to the cost savings, this emphasis has led to an erosion of the highly skilled building techniques underlying the creation of many traditional buildings. We believe that there is still great value in the character and quality of older buildings and the skilled craftsmanship essential to their creation. We look for every opportunity to incorporate the wisdom of the past in our present work. ^top of page^
