Kolbert Building


Portland, ME

Come to the most happening small city in the northeast! Kolbert Building is a small, award-winning renovation company with a focus on energy efficiency and out of the ordinary work; we are looking for experienced, well-rounded carpenters to expand our crew. We need talent and a desire to keep up with best practices in both carpentry and building science. A healthy irreverence is helpful as well.

Our work runs from additions and whole-house renovations to bathroom remodels and exterior rot repairs, with an occasional new house. We sub out most of our drywall, flooring, roofing, painting, and of course licensed trades, so carpentry skills and knowledge of renovation work is critical. Good framing skills are a plus. We provide all power tools; good hand and cordless tools and transportation all that are needed.

We are active members of NESEA, and we focus on making buildings more sustainable, comfortable and beautiful. Internally, we hope to create an inclusive, supportive environment that shares knowledge and experience and insures the long-term health and safety of our crew.

We are busy year-round with a substantial backlog.

Work is overwhelmingly in Cape Eliz, S. Portland, Portland and Falmouth.

$21/hr to start. Benefits include health if needed, life insurance, paid vacation, holidays and sick/weather days. Obviously, this is a real job, not a fake "1099 position".

Send resume and/or work experience, references, and any pictures of projects.

Non-traditional applicants encouraged to apply.
