New Home Construction
We specialize in building wood-framed small to medium size homes of 1400 – 2800 sq. ft. We supervise one job at a time and are on the job site every day to answer your questions and walk you through the complicated and sometimes scary process of constructing your home from scratch.
Want to remodel your bathroom, expand your kitchen or add a gazebo to your porch? We do all kinds of home additions and are home remodeling experts. We work closely with a licensed architect who will make sure the changes will nicely fit the original look of the house.
The frame of your house determines its future structure and look. That’s why it must be done properly from the start. We have decades of experience in framing, from small buildings to large and complex houses over 5000 sq. ft. with a variety of round roofs, octagon roofs and vaulted ceilings.
A family-owned business with 28 years of experience
Hi. I’m Chris Doyle, the owner of CD Construction. We are a family-owned and operated business with 28 years of expertise.
We are carpentry general contractors with extensive experience in framing, trimming, siding, custom homes and home additions. We also offer design and build services working closely with a licensed architect.
Although our company is small, we have a long list of highly qualified subcontractors we’ve been working with for years, which allows us to take on jobs of almost any size.
With only one crew, we always work on one job at a time until you are completely satisfied. This allows us to keep costs under control with low overhead, and clients happy with personalized service and our undivided attention.
Our Happy Clients
We completely trust Chris and his team, to the point that we left them our house key so that they could install the windows while we were at work. They did an amazing job from the demo to the final clean-up. We highly recommend Chris and his team!

Greendwood Lake House: Design & Construction
We designed and built this bi-level house from scratch. It had 2400 sq. ft. of living space plus a 400-sq. ft. 2-car garage on 1/2 acre of land.
It had 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, a living room, a family room, a dining room, an eat-in kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless-steel appliances, and a cedar deck front and back.
Flooring and Fireplaces
We built these 2 mantels the same day with extra trim material I had been saving for years. The floors took a little longer but they were a great upgrade to the house.
The floors were a mixture of different wood species in different rooms and used a variety of different patterns that gave each room a unique look.
This was a 3 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath, 1400 sq. ft. 100-year old colonial house that sat on a nice lot on a quiet street. We gutted it down to the frame, which was still solid, and rebuilt it from there.
This project turned out to be a challenge as the house had been neglected for a long time, but we are proud of the end result.
Frequently Asked Questions
When do I need a permit?
You are typically required to have a permit if you increase the square footage of your house or make structural changes. Some towns also require them for roofing, siding, windows and bathrooms. Call your local building department to be sure.
Can I put an apartment in my basement?
Yes, you can. You can’t charge rent, but you can put what is commonly referred to as an “in-law apartment” in your basement with its own kitchen and bathroom.
What is a plot plan and when do I need it?
Your plot plan (also known as a survey) is a scale drawing of your house on your property, showing your house as if you were looking at it from an airplane. You must have received it with all other papers when you purchased your house. You will need a copy of your plot plan to apply for a permit if you are adding new structures or changing existing ones.
What is a setback?
A setback is the minimum distance between structures on your property and the edge of your property. For example, your house or your garage may have required to be at least 30′ from your front, 20′ from your back and 15′ from your side property lines. These numbers can vary for your town and even your street depending on the zoning of your house. A quick call to your local building department will clarify this.
