Why customers choose Capital Dwelling

We take care of

From design to zoning to permitting to construction, we handle all aspects of your project from start to finish. We are the only contact you need to remember and we are extremely responsive. 

We know the area because we are from the area

The regulations that determine what you can build and where you can build it are established locally and they can change quite a bit from county to county. We have experience with permitting throughout the Washington region and we will navigate the local zoning process on your behalf.

Get the most value for your money

Our designs and construction methods are optimized to save you time and money. Modular construction means that our products are measured and cut in a controlled environment, which results in a higher quality product, faster installation times and lower labor costs.
