Dowbuilt is a construction company that was founded by top Pacific Northwest builders Jim Dow and George Schuchart in 2004, and now our talented teams can be found from coast to coast. We focus on one-off projects like cutting-edge, innovative new construction, challenging remodels and additions as well as home service - all of which require precision and impeccable attention to detail. The culture at Dowbuilt is one of care. Care for our people, care for our clients, care for the craftsmen we partner with - all resulting in care for the incredible designs we bring to life. While our employees' skill level and experience vary from entry level to mastery, all share an inspiring work ethic and passion for the build.
