CHESTERTOWN MacMillen Construction has recently joined forces with an architect as well as establishing a new headquarters downtown.
In 2000, MacMillen Construction owner John MacMillen launched his business, working out of his home in Chestertown.
This January, MacMillen, along with architectural designer Michael Rice, opened their new shop at the former Chestertown Fire Department firehall at 20 Church St.
The new headquarters and collaboration with Rice means the enterprise can provide a wider range of services, MacMillen said this week.
“We have expanded to offer our customers every element here they need to build their dream home,” he said.
Rice, owner of Rice Architectural Design of Warrensburg, had worked with MacMillen since 2007 and the two combined their skills to build Adirondack-style homes.
After 11 years working in his house, MacMillen said his family business had outgrown his shop and expansion was the next step.
“We have the room here to house everything we need for our business,” MacMillen said, referring to the historic local firehall.
This new location offers a full design and construction services, backed up by with a wide range of experience provided by Rice, MacMillen and his wife, and their six employees.
MacMillen said his company can now offer assistance at all phases of new home construction or remodeling including finding and procuring suitable land, architecture and design, building a home and upgrading the landscaping.
MacMillen said that his collaboration with Rice offers customers a single source for all their construction project needs.
“We can do it all — we can excavate, design and build all in-house,” he said.
