Honesty, Reliability, Sustainability
Kauai Eco Builders LLC works with residential and commercial clients throughout all phases of construction, from initial design concept to project completion. We believe in quality, reliable craftsmanship that merges the rawness of Mother Nature with luxurious creature comforts.
We strive to use sustainable, natural materials that are appropriate for Kauai's tropical climate, and locally sourced vendors and artisans. For restoration work, we create a fusion of old & new by salvaging original elements, yet incorporating today's modern finishes.
Often working as husband and wife team, Chad handles the execution of the build, while Cate is a design consultant and licensed Real Estate agent. Together, we can create your dream.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Raised in Kentucky, my earliest trade was plumbing, as I worked alongside my grandfather, learning from a true master. Over time, my portfolio began expanding, as new endeavors created opportunities...I have learned something from every job, working alongside many talented people from all walks of life.
After managing a time-period restoration in Glendale CA, I renovated my own childhood home. It was an incredible experience, to see the complete transformation of the old space, and be able to give back to my mom for all she's done raising us boys. Soon after, I was given an opportunity to work on a large, historical ranch on the Big Island. It was a life-changing opportunity, and I spent the next 3+years working there. We restored 3 incredibly run-down, termite damaged structures back to beauty, and today it continues to operate as a successful guest ranch.
I've worked for many homeowners over the years, some whose perfectionism drove others off the job site. But to this day, I credit these experiences for giving me such a critical eye for detail. I take pride in my work, and see it as a constantly evolving creative expression. I've settled down on the east shore of Kauai, with my wife, Cate, and our 3 sweet children, Lea, Blue, and Waioli. I feel very blessed to be living such a good life...
