We worked with Chuckanut on a full house remodel with addition. They were realistic (and pretty accurate) about dates/timelines, great about offering suggestions and ideas, and excellent at communicating issues in a timely and effective manner while also offering potential solutions. Our on site manager Chris was amazing to work with! Highly recommend.- Teri Milnes

The team at Chuckanut Builders is absolutely top notch. They performed a small remodel that turned out even better than we could have imagined. They were on time and on budget (almost unheard of in this industry) and everyone we interacted with was friendly and professional. There is no doubt that if we ever have another building project, Chuckanut will be our first call.- Eli Samuel
