Blue Heron Construction builds new dream homes, remodels existing homes, and completes creative construction projects.
Blue Heron Construction has been operating as a builder's cooperative since 1985. While technically made up of individual contractors, a coop business model enables us to share the costs of licensing and bonding, large investments in tools and equipment, daily overhead, construction employees, networks, and relationships. We have deep collaboration between owners; when needed owners work together to keep jobs flowing smoothly, occasionally cover for one another, and tap into the wisdom, experience, and skills of our fellow colleagues.
For over 30 years Blue Heron Construction has worked in Jefferson County, Washington and the City of Port Townsend. We have a long-standing commitment to holistic, eco-mindful, or "deep green" building practices. This means we look at the big picture impact of a building, taking into consideration low-impact site management, waste, recycling, heavy equipment impact on soil compression, use of rain gardens to control run-off.
We work hard to use low-VOC and formaldehyde-free building materials that will make a healthy home. We build super-insulated, energy-efficient homes that will bring years of cost-effective heating and cooling, as well as a smaller environmental footprint.
We make every effort to support our community and local economy by honoring long-standing relationships, sourcing materials locally, and working with top-notch sub-contractors. When able, we support our local non-profit organizations by volunteering consulting, labor, and materials. We value community.
Our Commitment to You
We bring that same commitment to collaboration and strong relationships to our work with clients, many of whom have become long-standing friends over the years. We strive to understand your lifestyle, your aesthetic, and your vision, so that we can act as a resource and guide during planning and construction; we can help ask the clarifying questions that get to the heart of achieving your dream home.
