Construction and Remodeling: Adapt Your Space to Match Your Evolution

Independence Gardens offers a variety of construction, maintenance, and repair services for households and organizations. Our goal is to keep our projects high-quality, affordable, and environmentally friendly via locally-sourced and sustainable products and responsible materials recovery.

Just a few of the myriad Construction Projects we can help you with

  • Building garden structures: raised beds, chicken coops and runs, decks, fences, arbors, sheds, pergolas, and more
  • Cleaning roofs, decks, fences, driveways, etc. and weatherproofing with water-based products
  • Painting (interior and exterior) with locally-sourced low- or no-VOC products
  • Maintaining and repairing siding, roofing and gutters
  • Installing windows and doors
  • Installing tile, hardwood and floating floors (we partner with experienced subcontractors for carpet and marmoleum)
  • Rough and finish carpentry, including installing and refinishing cabinets
  • Supporting weatherization work: we recommend Energy Trust trade ally contractors for most jobs in this vein, but we incorporate energy-efficiency components into our work that help our clients save money and the environment
