Red House works on a broad range of projects, including new home construction, additions, renovations, light commercial fit-ups and historic restorations.

Red House is differentiated from almost all other building companies in that they are one of very few worker-owned, cooperative building companies in the nation to date. When they restructured into Red House in 2003, after a successful decade as a small custom building firm, it was their goal to create a business environment that attracted and could retain top-quality employees and craftspeople. 

Currently more than one-half of the people in their company hold ownership shares in the company. Since their inception, we have grown steadily and Red House experiences next-to-zero employee turnover.

They say “Our employee-owned structure promotes an environment which consistently values the creativity, energy and commitment of all our employees. In addition to the obvious benefits this business structure provides to our business stability, our clients ultimately benefit the most from the level of commitment that our employees bring to their job site.”
