Working at Byggmeister

We are a mission-driven company committed to the triple bottom line: people, planet and profit. We believe that the work we do makes a difference—that by preserving and adapting older homes to meet the needs of the 21st century we are, in some small way, helping to build a better, more sustainable future.




We also believe that good work is only possible at a good workplace—one that provides fair and competitive wages and generous benefits, sees employees as people first, shares information widely, and empowers workers in all positions to give input into company operations.


On a mission to help build
a carbon-smart future

A successful Byggmeister project isn’t just completed on time, on budget and to the client’s satisfaction. It also aligns with our mission to serve as an exemplary steward of existing homes. And it helps solve the problems we collectively face—or at the very least doesn’t those problems worst. This is why we seek out opportunities to improve energy performance on every project. It’s also why we advocate for electrification and use low embodied-carbon materials whenever possible. And it’s why we always look first to meet our clients’ needs within their homes’ existing footprints.

Driven by a commitment to continuous improvement.

We started out in 1983 with limited carpentry experience, no design or business experience, and — our most impressive credential — charter subscriptions to Fine Homebuilding. We made up for our inexperience with our love of older homes, desire to do good work for good people, and commitment to continuous improvement. Nearly four decades later we are much more experienced, but we still push ourselves just as hard. Even as we celebrate a job well-done, we always ask ourselves, “How could we do better next time?” Because no matter how long we’ve been in business, there is always room to improve.
