Christopher B. McGrath, Owner, Field Operations and Management
Christine A. McGrath, Owner, Administrative & Marketing
We established the Great Barns Company four years ago. Chris began his construction career in his early years, working with his father building timber frame buildings for their family business Pine Harbor Wood Products in Harwich, Ma. He continued his career there as construction manager for 25 years constructing outbuildings from Provincetown to Sandwich to the Islands. He has had his hands in thousands of buildings including barns, houses, garages, pool houses, studios, sheds, cottages and everything in between. His reputation as an experienced craftsman proceeds him and lends to his current position as business owner. Chris has also taken a special interest in his home town of Dennis and has sat on the Old Kings Highway Board where he was able to offer his vast knowledge of the town as well as construction. Chris has also taken special interest in the vitalization of antique homes and has renovated and restored a 1700’s antique from studs to a beautifully restored Cape on Historic 6A as well as building a victorian style barn that still sit on the property today. Recently together Chris and Christine as well as running the Great Barns Company have renovated a “fixer upper” on a 3 acre parcel of land on Setucket Road in East Dennis, where they live today with the last three of their five children.
Along with the Great Barns Company, Christine is a Real Estate Sales Agent for Gibson Sothebys at their Dennis Village Office. Although, Cape Cod is fairly new to her as she is a “washashore”, Christine is inspired by the land and the people of Cape Cod. She has a fresh perspective to this place she now calls home. Her vision of Cape Cod real estate, set in its quaint, seaside villages and unique roads and homes also blends with her passion of building and renovating. Her background in the legal, real estate, administrative management and construction fields has given her all the tools she need to run the Great Barns Company and complete her real estate transactions, in an organized and diligent way.
