Lead Carpenter


Maine Passive House


Bethel, ME

Do you love to work with your hands, solve problems, and see the tangible results of your work at the end of the day? Maine Passive House, one of Maine’s leading general contractors of high-end, energy efficient homes, is looking for a full-time Lead Carpenter with at least 10 years of building experience. If you're motivated by quality craftsmanship and attention to detail, we'd love to hear from you. We value diversity in our crew and encourage people of color, women, and LGBTQ carpenters to apply. $25-35/hr to start, plus paid holidays and vacation, retirement benefits and a continued education stipend.

General Description: We are looking for a lead carpenter with excellent woodworking skills. To consider applying, you would need authentic hands-on experience with a wide variety of high quality projects. We’d expect you to be able to frame a complicated roof, finish a new set of stairs or do intricate siding details. We mostly build high-end homes from start to finish. We do all our own framing, siding and finish work, but leave roofing, drywall and painting to the respective professionals. As a lead carpenter your main responsibility is to help lead the day to day operation of the jobsite, while our office manager and project manager take care of the bulk of the paperwork. While work is important we understand that you like to have a life outside of work and we encourage a healthy work/life balance. We have a diverse crew with very little turnover, we laugh a lot, and enjoy our work. We generally work in locations in and around Bethel and Oxford Hills.

To apply: Please submit a cover letter and resume to info@mainepassivehouse.com
