Paul Maurer General Contracting, Inc.


In 1979, Paul Maurer set out to build beautiful, innovative homes in the Grand Traverse region of Northern Michigan—a place with magical sites tucked into woodlands, overlooking inland lakes and perched on the bluffs over Lake Michigan. Today, Paul Maurer General Contracting (PMGC) is one of the most recognized names for building creative, precise, and luxurious custom homes in Antrim, Benzie, Leelanau and Grand Traverse Counties. PMGC’s diverse portfolio has been featured by Better Home and Gardens, Professional Builder, Traverse Magazine, and Northern Home & Cottage Magazine.

PMGC’s shining reputation comes from putting the client first, which requires frequent, clear, and open communication from the early planning stages through completion and beyond. Decisions always involve the client’s input, creating a strong bond between clients and their architects, general contractor and subcontractors. We believe that relationships are the foundation of successful projects. In addition, our project planning and execution leave no detail unnoticed—from budget monitoring to obsession over the smallest architectural features. Our high volume of repeat business speaks for itself.

One look at our online gallery illustrates a broad diversity of styles, sizes, and sites where we have accomplished successful projects. PMGC is custom in the most flexible sense of the word, crafting residential and commercial structures as unique as the many architects and clients we serve.

Because we want our client relationships to last well beyond the final punchlist, we started Paul Maurer Home Services, a branch of our business that gives you flexible access to top-tier craftspeople and technicians for renovations, additions, and even the smallest home repairs and seasonal cottage monitoring. It’s our way of letting you know we back up every aspect of our work for good.

It starts with a place—and no doubt you’ve fallen in love with a special pocket of Northern Michigan. We’re ready to talk about turning your special place into your unique home.
