we are M.R. Brewer

we’re builders, designers, and cabinetmakers


applying time-tested craftsmanship to contemporary designs and lives

We build homes, renovate homes, and make gorgeous built-ins to accent both.

We make sense of office spaces, invite customers to retail stores, and bring attention to the smallest details, no matter how big the job.

Our family has passed a tradition of quality millwork through the generations, and we’re proud to offer our quality work to general contractors and homeowners alike.

How we Work

From our roots as Portland’s premier custom cabinetry and millwork shop, M.R. Brewer has evolved into an end-to-end homebuilder complete with professional in-house kitchen and bath design services. Here’s what you can expect when you work with our team:
