Context Custom Builders as a general contractor, has Specialized in Custom homes and Remodels servicing Seattle and the Eastside Since 1987.

Context Custom Builders offers comprehensive custom construction services with our in-house team of managers, finish and framing carpenters and craftspeople who not only have extensive knowledge of construction, but also an intuitive understanding of clients and their needs.

Owner Chris Barker, using his background as an Architect who found he truly loved being hands on in the building phase, bridges the gap between the design and construction stage. This intuitive understanding of how architects think enables Context Custom Builders to make your new home or remodel a seamless process with little or no hassle.

We work with a variety of Architects, Designers and Engineers who appreciate our ability to interpret their design, provide correct detailing and share our respect for fine design. We have constructed very traditionally detailed Architecture with the likes of Greg Bader, Ann Beeman and Andy Salkin to the very contemporary work of Gretchen Harriott, Curtis/Emmons, Studio Ectypos, Milan Heger, Peter Cohen and Charles Anderson.

We have developed a refined production system, which includes accurate estimating, scheduling and job costing along with efficient construction techniques. The result is an unparalleled service relationship, quality workmanship and minimal stress for the homeowner and Architect.
Our goal is to maintain that ongoing satisfaction far beyond the initial warranty period.

Our projects range from custom homes, kitchen remodels, and extensive interior/exterior renovations, to additions and underground garages. If you are looking for a builder or are in the beginning stages of working with an architect, give us a chance to make your dreams a reality.
