Visionaries. Designers.  Builders.



We don’t build houses, we build homes. We don’t work in materials and supplies, we work in values, visions, and partnership.

The team at Shaw Building & Design, Inc. is proud to have developed a customer focused building process that takes the worry out of building a new home or remodeling an existing home, from project and budget management to design. We don’t treat each customer how we’d like to be treated – we treat them better. How do we know our clients love working with us? They remain our friends long after the project is complete.

Shaw Building & Design, Inc. had the privilege of being the general contractor on the Madison area’s first net zero home. We have years of experience building vacation homes, cedar homes and timber frame homes.
