Calling all carpenters

We’re hiring!

About us

Chuckanut Builders is a Bellingham-based general contractor that specializes in custom, high performance projects. The majority of our projects are major residential remodels within Bellingham’s core neighborhoods, tenant improvement projects and custom green homes. We use an integrated design process and incorporate green building techniques and sustainable materials on all of our projects.

We are part of the growing network of Bellingham businesses that embrace the triple bottom line and believe that work should be fun. We’ve worked hard since founding our business to bring together a crew that is committed to sustainable building and who enjoy the challenge of helping our clients reduce their carbon footprint. Our hope is that our crew looks forward to coming to work (at least most days!) and that our employees have the opportunity to grow professionally within the business. Weekends and vacations often find our crew in the mountains, on the water, and spending time with family and friends. Our excitement for these endeavors carries over into our professional lives and the work environment we have created together…and we’re looking for an individual who wants to join in this work with us.
