what people are saying

See what clients, subcontractors, designers and architects are saying about Chuckanut Builders.

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.

We love our new house, built on a challenging lot. We appreciate all of the creativity, craftsmanship and care Chuckanut put in throughout the entire process. Their green energy expertise, thoughtful and excellent suggestions and responsiveness helped make our custom home beautiful and much admired. We are very happy we went with Chuckanut on this new construction adventure.

- Jane Bright

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.
