cMAC is awesome. Chris and his team are the consummate professionals. The quality of work and their attention to detail is impeccable. They were excellent at communication and were able to work with our busy schedules. As a result, we have a beautiful house which we absolutely love.
The Justine Home Owners
Our experience with cMAC was excellent. From the planning of our new home to the design of it and through the entire building process. We were in great hands with professional experts looking after the smallest details and the finished product is more than we could have dreamed. The owner, Chris Welch, is a wizard at problem solving and a perfectionist in every way. He is very proud of his reputation and of his finished product. He has built many beautiful homes and lifelong relationships with his customers. We would recommend cMAC to anyone looking to build their dream home.

Richard K. in Seattle, WA
Great people to work with. They came up with several creative solutions to construction problems caused by artful plans and drawings. Even our property insurance agent was astonished by the beauty of the finished product and wanted to come to the open house we held shortly after occupancy. I sincerely believe that cMAC, LLC is a quality home builder and would recommend them to anyone who desires a quality custom home.
The Triumph Home Owners
The old cabin on our property was torn down, removed, and our dream home was built in its place. Chris took this project from beginning to end – including helping us with the design and also the permitting process. We had several permitting issues which Chris helped us with, including meeting with the review board and helping us to get the permits needed to get this project up and going. He helped with the tear down, foundation, and all the steps right up to and including the final clean of the home prior to our moving in. He didn’t miss a single step in between and built us a beautiful home!!
Chris and his team built us an amazing home! His workers were always on time, very friendly, and did quality work. Chris stayed with us from beginning to end – even when it looked like we wouldn’t be able to build due to some permitting issues. Chris never gave up. He helped us with the permitting process and made our dream a reality!! He had great suggestions along the way. He answered all of our questions and he made sure we were able to add everything to the house that we wanted. Basically, he asked us to come up with everything we wanted and he would figure out how to get it done… and he did!We couldn’t be more pleased. We love our new home! Not only is Chris an outstanding builder – he has become a great friend. We would recommend him highly for any building project – from a remodel to a complete tear down and new construction. Chris knows his stuff and he is also a very nice guy.
We were able to stay within budget – and even under budget on some items. Chris was always willing to get the best price, without sacrificing quality. The only times we went over budget was due to our personal choice and an upgrade we decided to do. And Chris completed our home on time – early in fact. We cannot thank Chris, his staff, and his contractors enough for the amazing work they did for us!!! We love our new home and we love cMAC!!!

The Breindel Home Owners
cMAC built a custom house for us in 2011 and I could not have been more satisfied with the results. They delivered exactly what they promised which is all too uncommon these days. Three important results defined our experience with the cMAC team. The project was completed on budget. We decided on what we wanted in our house and they helped us make decisions that saved money in some key areas. The project was completed on time. cMAC has a scheduling system that lets you know exactly when each stage of the project is being done. Lastly, we were communicated with and treated well throughout the entire process. Chris and his team provided expertise and direction that save us time, money and heartache. I can not thank them enough for working with us to build the house of our dreams.
Zach and Sydney
The Oakheart Home Owners
All my husband and I knew when we contacted cMAC LLC was that we had property and wanted to build a house. We had no idea what steps it would entail or the process for which we had to go through. Chris and his team worked with us patiently from building permit, to a water well, to a septic system, then through the building of the house, guiding us all the way and keeping us in constant communication. Throughout every step cMAC’s attention to detail, and lightning fast response time, gave us absolute faith in their ability and we were thrilled with the final outcome that was very near painless for us. They provided amazing ideas and inspiration when we were stuck and their execution was flawless. cMAC has pride in their work and it shows in our absolutely perfect house!
The Mastercraft Home Owners
You took ideas and a dream and created a reality for us. To say “thank you” just doesn’t do justice to the overwhelming excitement we feel about moving back to the lake in a home that is exceedingly and abundantly above what we could have asked or hoped for.
The Ketchikan Home Owners
Your compassion for your clients needs far exceeds the norm. Your and Mike’s intelligence, experience and natural ability made our project run smoothly and always on schedule. You both made the building of our new home so fun and easy that we look forward to another great project together someday.
The Wilhelm Home Owners
You are a HUGE reason why our house has turned out so well! You have excellent design skills and truly have worked hard (and successfully) to create exactly what we were trying to achieve.
The Orion Home OwnersThanks to cMAC, our dream home is now our wonderful new home. Your crew did a wonderful job!
From our Remodel Clients:
Steve N. in Lake Tapps, WA
Project: Home Remodel
cMAC remodeled my house – twice. We had a flood half way through, (not cMAC’s fault), and they did the rebuild with insurance money. We had some additions put on, rebuilt a lot of things and updated flooring and counters. They were very responsive, easy to work with including remotely. cMAC also was very helpful with advice as we moved forward from their other experiences. The project went well. They were very professional. We are very pleased with the final product and appreciate cMAC being willing to put us into their schedule after the flood.
Sharon O. in Auburn, WA
Project: Remodel a Kitchen
cMAC did a wonderful job on my kitchen and family room remodel. If anything was not to my satisfaction, it was swiftly addressed. This is a very professional company, had attention to detail and that was very important as a customer.
Sue H. in Seattle, WA
Project: Remodel a Kitchen
Everyone at cMAC was professional, personable, and helpful. The work was done on schedule as agreed, and I was kept informed at all times. The attention to detail was good and I have already recommended them to other neighbors.
Project: Home renovations
cMAC is an awesome company to work with.
We are finishing a second round of renovation with cMAC. We knew exactly what we wanted in both rounds of renovation. Chris and his architect always gave us options in the planning stages: we could accomplish what you would like to do like this, or like that, and they would come with drawings for each. Chris is keenly aware of building codes in WA state. Chris is very thorough; We’ve built a compound from scratch, and we’ve done several renovations before we started on the WA state project. Chris always thought of things we didn’t, and we love to brainstorm. He uses quality building materials, and has both structural strength and safety in mind. Chris stays with a contract from beginning to end.
Both Chris and his Superintendent/Foreman are perfectionistic and sticklers for details. His foreman is willing to go the extra mile to make things right, and he stays on top of all the subcontractors, orchestrating their appointments. If they don’t show up on time, he’s all over them about it. This company is very respectful of the home on the job site.
Yes, we had delays on this last project, but it was nothing C-Mac did; it was the county, and they kept in tight communication with the county until it got resolved.
cMAC uses a phenomenal concrete contractor who can create very artistic walls, inside as well as out. I highly recommend exploring the possibilities there. Our concrete retaining walls are beautiful, and we designed them with LED lights built in to both walls and stairs.
They have very quick response times. Chris or Mike usually answer right away, or they always get back to me by the next day. They are pleasant people, as is their office manager, and accountant, Diane.
They have stayed true to their contract prices. They budget for appliances, lights, flooring, counter tops after hearing what we want. We have run over budget with change orders, but we asked for the change in all instances but one. When they excavated the steep hill and driveway and cleared out who knows how many tons of rock and soil to make the front entry more manageable, our power, gas and phone lines were severed. We started out with an older, quaint lake cottage; no one knew for sure where those lines ran to begin with. We were more than happy to pay the cost of having the lines re-run and upgraded to modern code. cMAC has transformed our quaint cottage into a lake home, and they did a beautiful job!
You will be delighted to work with C-Mac.
Elliot & Terri
Project: Bathroom remodel
We feel fortunate to have found cMAC to do our master bath remodel. Chris and Mike were highly professional, communicated well, and were very responsive to our needs and questions. The subcontractors they utilized were uniformly excellent, and they gave us some great feedback and suggestions on our design and how to resolve the inevitable problems we encountered along the way. We also appreciated the clarity of their bidding and accounting, and the fact that their pricing was reasonable and there were no surprises or unexpected delays. We’re delighted with how our new bath turned out, and have already recommended cMAC to our friends as a contractor they can trust.
Jim and Karen Jester
Project: Home renovation
Our realtor recommended cMAC to us for renovations to our recently purchased home on Lake Tapps. Our projects included incredibly minor repairs to floors and cabinetry, significant upgrades to closets, completion of ceiling construction in the daylight basement, and even custom frames for large art pieces. cMAC personnel were always on time, courteous, and kept the many worksites clean during the entire job. All work was completed on schedule and in budget, with constant consultation and timely updates on progress. We could not have been more pleased with the entire experience with cMAC, and will surely retain them for any future work in our home. Thank you so much!
Project: Home addition
We hired cMAC to put a small addition onto our home. The work included addition of a master bed/bath, remodel of a small bedroom to become a hallway and small laundry space, and addition of a front porch.
From the initial design process, through the final touch-ups, Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with—personable, professional, and courteous, with a notable attention to detail. He patiently worked with us and the designer, listened well, and had excellent input for solving design problems that came up. Moreover, Chris generously went the extra mile to help resolve a significant issue that came up with a tree company I’d hired to remove trees to make room for the addition—this was totally outside the work he was hired to do, and very much appreciated. Mike, the construction supervisor, is easy to work with, and very personable.
The tradespeople cMAC brought in for the various phases of work were honest, skilled and professional. Diane, the administrative assistant, is organized, friendly, and puts together very helpful “schedule of values” spread sheets that keep everyone on the same page. The construction came in on schedule, on budget, and with great communication throughout the process.
I recommend Chris Welch/cMAC without reservation.
Project: Home remodel
Please extend my gratitude to all those involved with my project at cMAC. I know this was a little out of the norm for you guys and I appreciate your patience with the whole insurance process. And thanks to all the subs. They did a great job. They showed up on schedule, completed the work on time and did a nice quality job. House looks great!

Tremendous experience and follow through. Mike was a pleasure to deal with during the project and kept us apprised of all activities. We are very happy with the outcome and result of our daylight basement project.
From our Commercial Clients:
Meridian Valley 5 Condo Association Manager
Project: Commercial restoration
My husband and I live in an older 6 unit condominium complex in Kent. The sidewalks, driveways and front porches had all deteriorated over time and needed to be replaced. After meeting with several different contractors and receiving bids from them, cMAC construction was the contractor we chose for our project. There were several deciding factors (besides price) that went into our association selecting cMAC. First off Mr. Chris Welch was the most professional of the contractors we met, he also introduced us to the subcontractors that he would be using for the project.
They all assured us that they would repair any damage to the existing sprinkler system and they would replace all of the landscaping that they would have to move for the demolition of the existing slabs. Well the entire project came in on time and within budget. All the workers were polite and professional and they all treated our property as if it were their own. Every homeowner was pleased with the outcome and none of us would hesitate to recommend cMAC construction to any of our friends and neighbors.
From our Associates:
John L Scott KMS
I would recommend Chris and cMAC to anyone who is considering any remodel or custom construction project, this home really showcases their talent and skills…
