Job Description

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

We are part of the growing network of Bellingham businesses that embrace the triple bottom line and believe that work should be fun.We have 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. We are climbers, skiers, backpackers, gardeners, and kayakers and our passion 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 us in this work.


  • Preference given to applicants with a background in both new construction and remodeling.
  • Experience with framing is strongly preferred.
  • A high level of craftsmanship is assumed.
  • Our lead carpenters are the face of our company. It is important that you are comfortable talking to clients and that you use email communications professionally.
  • Tech savvy: be able to manage an online calendar, respond to email, and be willing to learn our (simple) cloud based project management system.
  • Organized: we expect a tidy jobsite and clear, timely communication.
  • Able to field subcontractor and client questions when the project manager isn’t onsite.
  • We are looking for an individual that shares our interest in high performance buildings and are happy to train the right person if they have an interest in the field.
  • The position is full time, year round.


To apply please send a letter of interest and resume to with “Lead Carpenter” in the subject line. The position will remain open until July 30th.
