I am so grateful to my friend for recommending Chris when I told her I was going to renovate my kitchen. At the initial consultation Chris listened carefully while I told him my dream kitchen, offering a few ideas of his own. Throughout the four-week remodeling, I’m thankful he continued to remind me of my dream, as painters, the sales rep of the counter top, the appliance dealer, even the interior decorator I hired, all tried to talk me out of an all white kitchen. Besides being an excellent listener, he had great ideas on how to make my kitchen functional besides aesthetically pleasing. He and all the different tradesmen he brought in were polite and considerate: No loud music blaring, no unpleasant language. Another thing about Chris; if something wasn’t done to his perfectionist standards, he had it done over. For example, he saw things I probably would not have noticed. He called the installer of the counter top and the cabinet maker to come back and fix what he saw as not good enough. And once he is on a particular job, he’s there until it’s complete. He answers calls quickly. He’s at your house when he says he will be. Chris can make happen whatever it is you want. He’s an artist. He’s the best there is. Having an adorable smile is another plus.
My wife and I first contracted with Chris to do a master bath upgrade. He was recommended by some good friends who gave us a tour of the work Chris had done for them. The quality of the work convinced me to contract with Chris to meet him and understand his approach to these projects. We had several other projects in mind if this worked out. The bathroom upgrade convinced us that we wouldn’t look for anyone else to construct our outdoor Cabana which in many aspects became an art project.
The Cabana was complicated and really required excellence in many facets of construction to meet the vision we had for the project. As it turned out Chris exceeded our expectations. Even the city inspectors complimented the work through its phases with the final inspector telling me it was the best work he had seen. Another compliment came from the people who installed the granite. They sent a professional photographer out to capture their work, but against the background of the entire project.
Chris stands out because of his commitment to the project, his skill sets in all aspects of construction, and the interpersonal relationship he develops with the client. He brings the client into the many decisions that are made throughout the process always offering options and recommendations. His focus on proportions and feel are really important to meeting expectations. He simply does great work.

"Clean up was the initial reason I acted on a referral to call Chris McDonagh. His attention to detail, access to quality stone, meticulous work, & creative remodeling ideas are the major reasons I have chosen to remain with him & CAM Construction as I remodel my entire home. Recently a friend's experience reminded me of another factor. Chris's policy is to work on only one person's home at a time which eliminates wait time for him to return to my project."
"Chris McDonagh has been the only contractor to work on our home for over ten years. During this period he has graded and laid tiles over a large patio area; completely remodeled, upgraded and tiled a bathroom; repaired an aging pergola and fascia boards as well as other smaller projects. Each was completed promptly and on budget with the attention to detail and professionalism we had come to expect. Very personable and with deep roots in the county, Chris is completely trustworthy and can be counted on to turn out a high quality and competitive product."
"Chris and Carrie helped me to create my dream home. They were patient, supportive and understanding. Their sense of design, quality of work and meticulous approach were absolutely perfect and the outcome is amazing!"
