“For three decades, I had a vision of an attached garage to my home. After finally receiving conservation commission approval, Chris McGrath and his team made my vision a reality. In fact, it turned out even more fabulous than I imagined. Each of the various people working on the different facets of creating a mudroom and the garage were extremely professional, competent and diligent. Even details I hadn’t envisioned were address by Chris and his team. The end result is a spectacular new home that brings a smile to my face each and every time I push the garage door opener and walk into my new space. I know there are many more projects on my to do list. I am eager to have an opportunity to work with Chris again.”

I am a tough customer with a highly developed aesthetic sensibility. This was not the first time I had something built. Chris is, by far, the best overall contractor I have used on Cape. He and his Great Barns Company both met and exceeded my highest expectations. I would strongly recommend him to build your next project.

Tammy Horowitz, Wellfleet, MA

“I spent 3 years talking to several contractors and trying to get them to work within my budget unsuccessfully. I then met Chris and was quite impressed with the finished product he was delivering. He worked with my budget and even more so, advised me where to spend money and where not to. I was able to make my dream studio a reality with his guidance and expertise! I couldn’t be happier and whole heartedly recommend him and The Great Barns team to take on your next project!”

“I would HIGHLY recommend Great Barns. They were on time and on Budget. Chris and his team were great. They helped navigate the landscapers and other contractors with our vision and they made it so easy. We live off Cape and never had to worry. Our Two Car with loft above is stunning and the post and beam construction will last forever. Great Job! Great Barns!”
Michelle, Barnstable

“Great Barns is a great company. We had a barn/garage built for us last spring while we were off Cape. Even though we were 150 miles away, the project went off without a hitch. From start to finish the project was a wonderful experience. The quality of materials and workmanship, timeliness of completion and the value were outstanding. Great Barns is a company of integrity”

We love Chris and his great team. They are professional, courteous, and committed to doing an excellent job. Chris has a great “eye,” and cares about getting the details just right. He also goes above and beyond client expectations. Looking’ good– can’t wait! Your Westport Friends

We had a large two car garage (barn) build by this company last summer. We were totally impressed by the professionalism and high quality of their work. The crew arrived at 8 every morning and worked until late afternoon every day until the job was complete. We would highly recommend this company

Cheryl, Eastham

“Dear Chris and Christine,I want to thank you both for all you did to make our wonderful shower a reality! The design exceeds our wiLdest expectations, and our friends say it’s by far the best outside shower on the Cape. Indeed, it rivals our indoor bathrooms! Truthfully, on a scale of 1-10, it’s a 20! Please let us know if we can be of help to you as you look for new clients, and we’re always here as a reference. “

“I met Chris McGrath more than a year ago when I hired his company to build a couple additions to my circa 1730 historic home on Cape Cod. That was the best decision I had made in a long time since I was able to work closely with Chris and get to know him better as a top construction professional with the highest level of work ethics. From our first meeting there was no doubt in my mind that he placed a lot of value in keeping the customer first. Adding new construction to a very old house is a challenging job that takes a lot of insight and understanding to do it right. Having restored other historic properties over the last 30 years I had high standards and specific ideas as to what needed to be done. To my delight, not only was Chris fully skilled and experienced in doing that, he actually improved many of my ideas as construction progressed. The end product is a wonderful blend of new construction that is almost seamless to the original historic structure. I am sure that never could have happened without Chris’ personal dedication to excellence, his high skill level of craftsmanship, and the respect he had from all the trade professionals on the job. There is no doubt in my mind that whatever Chris sets out to do he will be very successful as he continues to build a growing network of very supportive customers, associates, and friends. “
