About Us

Western Construction is a full-service building and contracting firm based on Mercer Island that helps you design, plan, and build your own custom home or remodel your current home.

Locally Based and Community Oriented

When you live and work in the same community for as long as we have, you know that you won’t last long if you don’t treat people with respect and fairness. Everyone’s heard the horror stories, but at Western Construction we believe that we build more than just homes—we also build relationships; not just with you, but with the surrounding community as well.

Our reputation is known for our high-quality craftsmanship and for how we deal with our customers, subcontractors, and providers.

We know that we’re dealing with customers who expect the highest quality of both work and service. What we deliver is the highest level of professionalism, integrity, and fairness. We have obligations to measure up to, high standards in our work, and our relationships with customers, suppliers, subcontractors, and professional associates.


Owner-Operated Means Personal Contact

We manage each project personally and are always available to answer questions and help you understand the process. You won’t be dealing with any middle-man in the process. We ensure that each project we work on gets our full attention and we work directly with you to make decisions that will improve the life and value of your home.
