2022 has been a year of growth and change at McDonald Construction. I am grateful for the team at McDonald and our talented roster of trade and vendor partners. All of us at McDonald are very thankful for the opportunities our current and past clients have given us to build and renovate their beautiful homes.

As we get set to turn the page on 2022, I hope you all enjoy peace and prosperity during these Holidays and in 2023!
