A Mac-Bo home remodel is built to last with the care and planning we’d want put into our own homes.

Mac-Bo - Why the funny name?

Mac-Bo Homes & Remodels of Portland, Oregon was formed by Ed Hesse in October 2004. Originally licensed as MacArthur Booth Constructors, our vendors and subcontractors quickly began calling us Mac-Bo and it stuck. So we are now licensed as Mac-Bo, LLC. Mac-Bo has evolved into an experienced, award-winning general contracting firm. We continue to grow with the industry and are on the forefront of innovation in home remodeling and renovation design and building practices, remodeling homes throughout the Portland-Vancouver metro area and beyond.

The Mac-Bo Sweet Spot

We specialize in mid-20th century home remodels. To be perfectly honest, we believe that houses built between 1945 and 1965 are the best candidates for significant renovations that fit today’s lifestyle. It’s not that we don’t work on houses built before or after those dates, but we have a particular affection for the ranch home.

The Mac-Bo Remodeling Team: Who are we really?

Ed Hesse has been building and remodeling homes for more than three decades following his education from Rochester Institute of Technology. Ed heads the team’s technical and engineering side – you might say he’s the left-brained side of Mac-Bo.
