“A Master at Making it Work”

KDL Builders has been building quality custom homes, remodels, additions, and commercial projects in Washington and California for over 30 years.

What sets KDL Builders apart is their list of numerous repeat clients. Whether building multiple houses, guest houses, or additions, clients appreciate continual personal attention and follow through over many years.

General Manager Kent Ducote has built and developed  a variety of commercial and residential projects of all sizes all over Washington, California and Texas, but loves the personal interaction and relationships involved in custom home projects in the San Juan Islands.


Kent Ducote is a licensed General Contractor in California, as well as a developer, spec builder, and skilled carpenter. He started his career by completing a Carpenter’s Union Apprenticeship Program in Northern California before serving as a foreman, Project Manager, and Superintendent for multimillion dollar projects and managing over a hundred carpenters.

Kent lives with his wife and two dogs on San Juan Island, in a home he built nestled in the forest, where he works on his ever expanding garden. He feels lucky to work with such a great group of folks, many of whom have been with him for several years.
