McMurray Inc is a residential design and build construction firm. We were founded in 1990 by Scott Walker. He was at the time studying for his degree in architecture and working as a draftsman. However, he soon realized that his yearning was to build and be out of the office. Matt Sommer, his former college room-mate, was his first employee and is still with the firm, working as a project manager and cabinet designer/builder. We have always preferred to renovate homes. The opportunity to work with clients and their older homes is a creative process that we thrive on. Solutions can present themselves during the building process. Our thorough, creative and hands-on approach to managing a project takes full advantage of these opportunities. We are a full service contractor, with excellent relationships with our tradesmen, who we rely on. Working in your home, most often while you are living in it as well, is what we do. We make every effort to ensure this process is pleasant as possible. Our cabinet shop, located in Northbrook, is staffed with skilled craftsmen and finishers. (Come for a visit while we are building your kitchen.) All of the cabinetry that you see in the project photos was designed, built and installed by McMurray Inc.

McMurray Inc is a first rate company run by two first-rate people, Scott Walker and Matt Sommers. Their work is without question the highest quality work ever completed in any of our homes. Their attention to detail and the quality of their workmanship is unparalleled. We bought a home that the renovated for resale and had cabinetry additions and some interior changes completed by them before and after we moved in. You will never have to follow up with them about timing, the quality of their work or the professionalism of their workers. The do it right the first time, period. Stress free renovations, if you can believe that! And they are fun people, too! I cannot recommend them enough.

As an Interior Designer, I have had the pleasure of working with McMurray on two major renovations. Scott is easy to work with, listens well , and readily offers suggestions and remedies to what could be problematic. Matt couldn't have done a more beautiful job on the custom cabinetry throughout the kitchen and house...full drawings and details were given and reworked until total satisfaction was reached. The quality of the work speaks volumes about the crew and subs Scott uses. There are a million moving parts to a renovation...working with Scott gives you peace of mind. I highly recommend McMurray.

We hired McMurray Inc mainly to update our kitchen/dining area and add a mudroom but they were also very helpful in advising us and making changes to other parts of our home. Our house was built in 1953 and previous owners took very good care of it but the layout of the house was very out of date and we needed to make a lot of cosmetic updates too. We were very pleased with the new kitchen design as well as the cabinets, banquette, and island they built for us. It was great to work with McMurray Inc since we had to make so many different types of updates to our house. They were able coordinate all of those different projects with the subcontractors they work with which saved us a lot of time and energy! They started working on our house in late January and were done in April which seemed like a reasonable amount of time since we had so much done. We would definitely recommend working with McMurray Inc.

I had McMurray Inc build some custom furniture for my office. The level of craftsmanship and quality was exceptional. Matt Sommer was a complete joy to work with and every deadline and budget was met. I am extremely happy and get compliments daily on these pieces.

Our experience with McMurray has been excellent. Scott, Matt, Pete and the entire crew have been very professional and a joy to work with. We hired McMurray to design and build a major three story addition to the back of our 100+ year old home. The design process was seamless and fast. Scott and the crew were filled with wonderful design ideas. The craftsmanship of Matt's millwork and the attention to detail produced the kitchen of our dreams. All of the finished details throughout the house are absolutely beautiful and aligned with its historical character. They completed the project on time and within budget and delivered a beautiful new home for our family that exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend McMurray to anybody (and indeed we have many times).

My husband and I have used McMurray Inc for 18 years. They rehabbed our old home that was built in 1923 and it sold in one day. Currently, McMurray Inc is wrapping up an extensive rehab to our new home that was built in 2001. The quality of their craftsmanship and the subs that they hire make it a "win win" situation!

We hired McMurray as an integral partner in our total house renovation. Our project encompassed the designing and building of an extensive amount of custom cabinetry throughout the house, including the kitchen, butlers pantry, mud room, laundry room, media center and three bathrooms. Working with Scott, Matt and their entire crew was an enjoyable and seamless experience from start to finish.. Their goal was to have an end result that was perfect and most importantly, one that we were completely satisfied with. Their experience,especially with kitchen design, allowed us to create a kitchen that we absolutely love and functions perfectly for our needs.

McMurray designs and manufactures custom kitchens, baths and remodels homes of all ages. We have worked extensively with them, always under super tight and impossible time lines. We have used them to remodel a 1924 home ( inside to out -complete gut job) and a 1990 new construction that we wanted to add detail and character to. They are design savvy, very creative and proactively think about how you will use the space and all the work you should consider while being in a remodel. I refer them all the time and would highly recommend them. Total professionals-you will be super happy with your space post McMurray completion!

Quality. If that's what you want, McMurray is for you. We have been living in one of their homes for three and half years now. It is a pleasure to live there, every single day. The workmanship is both beautiful and solid. We feel privileged to be able to own such a home. In addition, they are extremely easy people to deal with - so much so that we begin to think of them as friends. Pretty amazing for contractors.

We have worked with Scott Walker, Matt Sommer and crew on two major projects. We bought our 1927 home almost three years ago. Prior to move in, they rewired all of the electrical, installed forced-air heat and AC, blew in wall insulation, refinished floors, designed and installed an eat-in area in the kitchen and painted throughout. We were on a tight timeline, and they did a fabulous job. We hired them again to gut our master bedroom, add a walk-in closet, and build a master-bath addition over our garage. They also remodeled a smaller second floor bath. We are absolutely thrilled with the results! Scott and Matt are extremely knowledgeable, professional, creative, and just plain fun to work with. We have two more bathrooms to remodel, and I wouldn't even consider hiring anyone else. Can't speak highly enough about this company…they are the best!

McMurray fully gutted our home from digging out the basement through the 3rd floor of our house. It took about one year. The overall expense was much higher than originally budgeted; however our home was an old barn and as we opened up walls we had to do much more work than anticipated. They were very timely. Scott Walker is very attentive to his clients. He has an architecture background which was helpful in tweaking our plans as needed. He has tremendous relationships with all of the trades. It seemed that they all enjoy doing projects for him. Matt Sommer built almost all of our cabinetry and it's beautiful. I enjoyed all of the workers in our home. Post project, they are very responsive when we need anything.

We could not be happier with McMurray Inc & the beautiful work they have done. We did a full gut rehab & addition to our home. McMurray Inc have a complete understanding of how to build a home based on your family's needs. They maximized every square inch of our home, showing their creativity & thinking "outside the box". The craftsmanship & attention to detail is impeccable. They finished well ahead of schedule & could not be more reliable. Every person working in our home was respectful & helpful with answering any questions or needs. Scott Walker & Matt Sommer were very attentive & involved in the process & decision making. They both made themselves available at all times. We loved working with the whole team at McMurray Inc & recommend them to all!
