About Us

Joe McCahon is a lifelong carpenter, who worked his way through high school and college perfecting his craft.  Upon graduation from Salisbury University with a BS in Business Management, Joe joined a framing company as a crew foreman, ensuring quality and service on site.  As he gained experience and worked on larger jobs, he began to create a very different experience for his clients, one that had him fully engaged in each and every project.  In 1994, Joe took the leap and started McCahon Builders, which quickly grew into a full service home builder. 

Taking on jobs from bathroom and kitchen redesigns, to additions, to full home renovations and custom home building, Joe completes each project with superior quality workmanship.  Joe uses his hands on approach to engage the client from start to finish, timing his jobs so that each one has his focus and he can work on-site to ensure only the finest results. 

Born in Downingtown and a lifelong resident, Joe is your quintessential guy-next-door; the little league dad that everyone knows and trusts.  He understands what your family needs, and is completely involved in the process to ensure that he delivers your vision.


Jennifer McCahon Jennifer McCahon has a background in the design and fashion industry, holding a degree in Textiles from Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science. As her husband Joe’s business grew, Jennifer saw an opportunity to provide a unique service to their customers, and she is now an integral part of the process.

Jennifer meets with each client as they begin the process of building their dream home or addition. Jenn lends her expertise in design to choose finishes, colors, materials for the client, and then represents the client to the manufacturers to ensure that each customer is getting the best quality finishes at a fair price. A design service is one that many people pay exorbitant prices for, however at McCahon this expert service is a complimentary part of the process. Just another way that McCahon puts the customer first.
