Who We Are

I firmly believe that a good working relationship starts with a good, solid foundation. 

It is important that the person you work with for your home needs be a good fit, not only with regard to skill set, but also personality.  I’m looking to work with people who are positive, capable of clear communication, and who are able to make timely decisions.  You believe in your ideas and offerings and are willing to put in the work necessary to make things happen.  Together we can make great things happen!

So, if you’d like to see if we’re a good fit, I invite you to contact us. 

The purpose of the consultation is to get to know you better, get an idea of what your specific needs are and see if our budgets align.  If we both feel like we’d like to work together, we’ll schedule a second, longer call to discuss your project in-depth.  This will allow us to put together the next steps toward your better home.

Working with me is an investment in your home and the services that I offer are valuable and bring value to your home

MLF Built is owned and run by Stephen Grudier. Stephen has been in the construction industry since 1984, starting as an electrician doing ultra-high end residential projects, then earning a bachelor's degree from the University of Washington in Construction Management. During and after attending the UW, he worked as a Project Manager running electrical projects such as the Pacific Science Center Imax Theater, biotech projects for Rosetta Biopharmics, Icos, and Zymogenetics and new buildings for Microsoft.

His general commercial experience began with Kiewit Construction on the Seattle Convention Center expansion where he was in charge of mechanical, plumbing, electrical and fire/life safety. Stephen then worked on an ultra-high end residential project for two years in Medina.

MLF Built started after that project was completed, and since then we have steadily grown and completed over 250 projects with a lengthy reference list.
