who we are

McBride Housewrights is a full service carpentry, woodworking and contracting company, based in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood and serving the greater Chicagoland area.

Our extensive background in traditional construction techniques is balanced by our penchant for constantly improving our methods of work when new materials and equipment make it possible. This has enabled us to specialize in the care and improvement of vintage homes.

Dedication to craftsmanship and a conscientious attention to detail run deep in our work, and in the character of our company. While we are always looking for ways to improve the quality, durability and timeliness of our work, we are also looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment—and reduce the disruption that home projects can impose on your household.

Scroll down for a sampling of past work, and please contact us when you’d like to discuss the repair, remodeling or restoration of your own home: nathan@mcbridehousewrights.com
