Beautiful New Home

Beautiful New Home

Our team built this home from the ground up and love the finished product.  From a huge gorgeous kitchen, with an island fit for the whole family, to the spacious basement and living room, it’s a house that is ready to be a home. The first floor has an open floor plan, making entertaining a breeze. While the basement is big enough for a game room for the kids or a man cave for dad.

It was fun to work on a home from the first to the last step. Take a peek inside and let us know what you think.

Brand New Three-Family Home

Brand New Three-Family Home

Our team has been working on building this three-family home in Waltham since last summer. The house that was previously there sadly burnt down and we had to build a new home from scratch. It’s been a really exciting project and we’re happy to say that all three units have officially been sold! They went quick and you’ll see why.


As you can see, we had a blank canvas to start from (with some limitations, of course) but it was exciting to build a brand new home.

After: Our realtor friends at Exp Realty took these photos of the finished product. Thanks for all your hard work!

What do you think? Do you love the finished product as much as we do?  Congrats to the three families who bought these beautiful condos. We wish you the best of luck in your new home!

Total Basement Remodel

Total Basement Remodel

This basement remodel is quite remarkable! Not only was our team at McDonald Contracting able to increase the living space for these homeowners, but they also added a beautiful new bathroom. By remodeling the basement and adding a new bathroom the homeowners can live more comfortably while increasing the value of their home. It’s a win-win!

Thinking about giving your basement a makeover? In the United States, on average, finishing a basement will give you a return of 70 to 75% of your investment. For example, if you spend $1000 you would increase the value of your home by $700. So not only do you get a cool new TV Room/Teen Room/Man Cave/Crafting Corner (you get the idea) but you also improve the overall value of the home. Something to think about for sure.

Renovated Condo Kitchen

Renovated Condo Kitchen

Can you believe this gorgeous kitchen is located in a condo? Well, it is! Not only is it the perfect size, but its modern, functional and has unexpected details that make a big impact.

One detail we’re loving in this kitchen remodel is the natural soffit. The soffit adds just the right amount of dimension to this space. Soffits are a great way to add an architectural feature to your home without breaking the bank. See below to check it out.

The homeowner came to us because of water damage. Our team worked fast to create a kitchen design that fits perfectly with-in the condo’s floor plan. The new design provides a seamless flow as well as plenty of storage and usable counter space.

Let us know what you think about this newly renovated kitchen. Our team at McDonald Contracting had a blast working on this project.

Expansive Second-Floor Home Addition

Expansive Second-Floor Home Addition

Our team at McDonald Contracting took this one-story home from good to great! By adding on an entirely new floor, we were able to give the homeowners more space for family time as well as more bedrooms for privacy. Prior to the renovation, this was a 2-bedroom and 1 bath home shared by 4 people and 2 adorable dogs.  Each of the kids now has their own room and the parents now of a spacious new master bedroom, bathroom and walk-in closet.  The laundry is now on the second floor, making for easier laundry days!
