Emerald Isle General Contracting, LLC is dedicated to taking our clients back to a time when residential home improvement, contracting and client relationships were built on a partnership of integrity, a handshake and an honest day’s labor.

My story begins in the Old Country of Scotland. Growing up on a farm, I was always working with tools from a young age – making different woodwork crafts, building fences or working on barn house restoration projects.


My summers would be spent on building sites doing various carpentry tasks, and even my high school internships were with carpentry trades. A love for building has been in my blood my entire life. With $70 in my pocket and no family or friends in the U.S., I came to this country in search of the “American Dream.” With hard work, I found success in New York City, but my love of carpentry and passion as a tradesman never left me.

Over the years, friends and family – knowing my background and interest in carpentry – would seek me out for guidance on their home improvement projects. It started out as doing small jobs here and there, but as word of mouth picked up, other members of the community started seeking me out. I knew it was time for me to build something of my own and to finally pursue my passion. It was at that point that I decided to start Emerald Isle General Contracting.

“If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
