As strange as it sounds, Snoqualmie’s most prominent attraction is its small-town character. Its simple lifestyle draws residents to reside in this planned community that consists of cozy residences, retail plazas, and commercial establishments.

With an appreciation for the community’s rural and historical ambiance, we put together this list of The Best General Contractors in Snoqualmie, Washington, firms developing homes that effortlessly reflect the town’s modest atmosphere. Each firm on this list practices a building process that centers on the client’s vision, provides comprehensive construction services, and understands the town’s architectural personality.

MacPherson Construction and Design

21626 SE 28th Street, Sammamish, WA 98075

Roger MacPherson started MacPherson Construction & Design in 1983, supported by comprehensive architecture, interior design, and construction skills. In serving the residents of Washington, he works with a group of craftsmen who have the same passion and capabilities he does. His group includes a design team providing architectural services and interior design, a dedicated construction team with years of experience, and competent subcontractors with a high esteem for the profession. Aiming to provide a smooth building process, each division works in unison to give its clients a home worth of their investment.

​​The smooth process commences with programming where MacPherson Construction & Design creates schematic plans to have an initial glimpse of the home’s appearance. While the drawings are in structural review, the interior designers guide the client through their choices: roof color, door style, and furniture. During the construction process, the assigned project manager stays active in assisting the clients, guiding the team as they work in full production mode, and ensures that every vendor is fully licensed, insured, and bonded. These operations result in a personal living space that represents the owner’s lifestyle and character.

Armada Design & Build Inc.

12727 Northup Way #6, Bellevue, WA 98005

Armada Design & Build is a residential construction company providing new construction, kitchen and bathroom remodels, additions, and other construction services. It aims to be a reliable partner through every construction phase, from concept and plan consultation to the final build and touches. By collaboratively working with clients, the firm installs unique and special details to make a project fit and appropriate for its residents. 

This new construction in Bellevue is a great example of the firm’s work, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and a neutral palette interior. The same colors are visible from the kitchen, where the countertops are black and the cabinets are clean white.  A staircase leads to the second-level bedrooms.

Since its establishment in 2011, Armada Design & Build has served the residents of Bellevue and the Greater Seattle region remodeling and constructing houses in a range of styles including transitional, contemporary, and traditional. These experiences and knowledge allow the firm to make every home renovation valuable and enjoyable.

UNIQ Interiors

12400 SE 38th Street, #40059, Bellevue, WA 98006

The featured project shows how UNIQ Interiors lives up to its name. Slightly deviating from the simple wall textures or light neutral tones, this home certainly looks unique with the bold use of brick walls, wooden tables, stylish wall frames, carpet, and the choice of furniture pieces. This ornamented living area leads to the lush backyard outside and the toned-down kitchen and dining area provides a plain neutral style.

For every project, UNIQ Interiors begins with communicating with the clients to understand their needs and the scope and scale of the entire project. After this initial consultation, the client chooses whether the design plan will be completed by the firm, by another architect, or by himself. When the designs are approved, the firm will present the construction contract specifying the scope of work, estimated timeline, legalities, and payment schedules. After that contract is signed by the client, the firm assigns a project manager and schedules a tentative start date.

Higgason Construction

24846 SE 19th Street, Sammamish, WA 98075

Shannon Higgason began his construction career when he was 17 years old, sharpening his skills and knowledge about the residential construction industry. Starting at a young age, he learned the building process of a home and the importance of craftsmanship, communication, and professionalism when running a company. These three tenets have become the foundation of his self-founded firm, Higgason Construction. 

Higgason Construction invests in and hires a team of engineers, designers, and builders skilled enough to craft proficient solutions and who bring expertise and attentiveness to every project. Aiming to realize a specific vision, the firm communicates with the clients constantly and collaboratively. An example of its work is the Sepic Project located in Mercer Island, in which the firm remodeled the fireplace. It tore down the original, then installed a custom limestone gas fireplace and additional lighting, and repainted the entire area.
