residential contracting - cost estimates - design / build






















We are a Design/Build General Contractor.  Design/Build is a type of project delivery that puts the designers and contractors on the same team.  This is advantageous because it keeps the designers from designing something that is not buildable or too expensive right from the start.  Design/Build gets the contractor involved early on so the essence of the design is understood from the start as well.  Basically, both the designer and the contractor are acting as checks and balances for each other while the final design and budget are developed.

We have two ways of approaching a Design/Build project depending on the size and complexity of the project.

  1. If the project is small, we can do the design in house as we develop the budget.
  2. If the project is more complex, we will partner with an architect and/or engineer(s) and work with them to develop the design and budget.


We at mu-2 Inc. are licensed, bonded & insured General Contractor's in the state of Washington. We have a team of carpenters, finish carpenters, and laborers that self-perform the majority of the work on our projects. We believe it is important to have these skilled craftsman under our direct employment for control of quality and schedule. Some of our competition subcontracts all of their skilled labor and they have less control which can cause problems for obvious reasons. With that said, we do have an extensive list of pre-qualified sub-contractors that perform things like plumbing, electrical, HVAC, roofing, etc. Some things are just best left to folks that do this type of work every day.
