Serving the DC Area with Quality and Distinction Since 1980
Why Use Macon Construction?
Decades of Excellence
For over 40 years, Macon Construction has led the D.C. area in quality construction homes. No matter what your goals or designs call for, our team of expert craftsmen and committed project managers will execute at the highest level. In our decades in the industry, we’ve worked with nearly every kind of architectural style deployed in D.C. and shepherded hundreds of home remodeling projects to completion.
A Philosophy of Transparency
We take care to carefully craft our proposals to give our clients a clear picture of their project’s costs and timelines. We use our thoroughly researched bid documents as the main planning tool for your entire project, allowing us to keep surprises, cost overruns, and delays to a minimum. We involve our clients every step of the way and always listen to their needs and concerns.
A Commitment to Quality
We stake our reputation on delivering beautiful homes and additions on-time and on-budget. Our integrity is what keeps clients coming back, and our reputation has spread throughout the D.C. area. We’ve maintained excellent relationships with architects, designers, and subcontractors for decades because we know we can trust their work and they know they can trust ours. Numerous professional associations and magazines have featured our work and given us awards over the years, but we’re not in it for the accolades. We do it because our clients deserve straightforward, honest construction.
You will not find a firm that takes the integrity of your property more seriously. Whether you choose to remain in the house during the project or live elsewhere, you will always have an open line of communication to your project manager and a crew that treats your home with care. Our clients who stay for the job miss us when it’s over. Our clients who live elsewhere appreciate that we treated their home with the respect it deserved.
This thoughtful renovation and additions to a split-level home on a wonderful wooded site in McLean reflects the clients desire to improve rather demolish the home that they had owned and loved for more than 30 years.
The re-purposing of the historic Giddings School buildings into a 60,000 square foot health club was an amazing collaboration between city officials, community leaders, designers, investors and many others.
"I wish to say what a fantastic job you and your crew have done. I know the owners are incredibly pleased."

Changing life circumstances often require a completely new footprint. Home inventory is at all-time lows, and you already love your current location. If you have a new kid on the way or want to make space for more amenities as you retire in place, we can help you add space while preserving the design elements that make your home special. If you own a pre-war home, its features may lag significantly behind modern standards, with smaller bedrooms and limited closet space. You may want a master bathroom that gives the spa-like experience some homeowners love. Often, these enhancements cannot happen with a home’s current footprint, and we need to expand.
Most often, a whole home remodel starts with homeowners finding they have a home they love with a few shortcomings that keep it from being perfect. You don’t want to lose the character of the home, but you might wish it was more open, for example. A whole home renovation can give you the “great room” design of an open first floor without sacrificing the details and charm of your current house. Maybe now that the kids have moved out, you want to finally build that library with custom built-ins and a backyard deck for entertaining. You can have it all; you just need the right team behind you.
Macon Construction is a leader in historic repair and restoration in the D.C. area. We work with clients to protect our region’s rich architectural heritage by modernizing interiors and exteriors while retaining significant historical details. Modern building science techniques can shield centuries-old buildings from degradation, whether it’s installing state-of-the-art HVAC systems, reinforcing structural members, or restoring a worn facade with more durable materials. Our team’s results speak for themselves.
"I truly enjoyed working with Macon, without everyone's level of effort we could not have created such an excellent product."
