M/W Contracting began as most companies do. Very small.

Owner Michael White started out as a cabinetmaker in the early 70’s. Trained under the eye of an old Swedish Master Carpenter, Michael built fine oak furniture for the newly reopened Trinity Square Repertory Co. in Providence, RI.

He also became the Technical Director responsible for all stage building. It was an unusual job, one day they would build a Victorian house in full detail, next a WWII PT Boat, next a Roman style arena. This would serve him well in the future remodeling business.

After a brief stint at the Mill Valley Cabinet Shop in the mid-70’s, Michael started what would later be MWGC in 1985. A series of small jobs led to more substantial work. And the ball started rolling. Six years later he had 8 employees, and by 1998, 25+ employees were helping to rebuild Marin County and parts of San Francisco with unparalleled quality.

Bigger and better jobs are always on the horizon as one of the company’s goals is to keep the work interesting and challenging.
