About Us

A little about us…..

Established in 1992 by Gary J. Chagnon, we have an extensive background and experience in all aspects of construction. “CBR” began as a one–man operation, doing primarily siding and renovation projects on a part time basis.

As time marched on Gary gained a reputation for his quality workmanship, exceptional standards, and easy-going personality. Demand for his skills became strong enough for him to resign from his occupation as an Architectural Designer, hire a crew, and commit himself to running the business in a full-time capacity.

In 1993, after a year of success, Gary extended CBR’s services into the custom Home-building market. Involving itself with the “Energy Crafted Home” program, in April 1994 CBR completed its first custom home under the name “Chagnon Building & Remodeling.”

Extending his formal secondary education as a Certified Architectural and Civil Designer, in 2002 Gary also became a Certified Vectorworks Architectural Designer.

2004 brought another certification as a 20/20 Kitchen Designer.

Most recently, in April 2010, Gary completed all courses for the new RRP law certifying that Chagnon Building & Remodeling is an EPA LEAD Certified, compliant company.

Currently, CBR is a Limited Liability Company operated by the husband and wife team, Gary & Carla Chagnon. Together, they maintain firm beliefs in what they do and take pride in their accomplishments. While Gary is not a “sit-behind-a-desk” kind of man, he prefers to be out in the field working on the job-site to ensure the quality, integrity and progress. Each project must meet or exceed Gary’s high standards. You will find him swinging his hammer on your project too. During his absence, he is devoted to giving additional clients the same courtesy given to you during the preliminary phases of your project.
