Leaders in Building a More Sustainable Seattle

Heartwood Builders, owned by Gabe Engler, is a custom home and commercial builder based in the Seattle area. Heartwood Builders has a reputation of great people and communication skills, combined with impeccable construction ability. Founded by Gabe’s father, Scott Engler, Heartwood Builders has grown from humble beginnings to become one of the most reliable and innovative custom home builders in the Northwest.

The Heartwood Builders team is passionate about quality construction. We focus on sustainable systems and materials to reduce the impact on our environment, as well as provide healthy living environments for families. We value clean living environments and sustainable building practices, and firmly believe current building practices are long overdue for a change. The Heartwood team is committed to leading the tides of change in home construction.

Our Building Philosophy

Technology has come a long way since our start, and now there is an environmentally sensitive option for almost every application. Our homes are designed and constructed to be built with minimal raw materials, be much healthier places to live and raise a family, and draw very little water and public power compared to contemporary homes.

In addition to our depth of experience in construction, we are actively learning new practices and processes to enhance our ability to be a leader in the industry. Continually using new materials, methods and technology keeps us at the forefront of the market. We also support our homes and buildings long after they are completed, because our customers become part of the Heartwood family and community.

About Our Builders

One of the keys to our success is our long-standing relationship with our employees. Our architects have decades of experience crafting stunning properties across the Northwest. Being able to self-perform much of our work enables us to efficiently control quality, schedule, and costs. Heartwood employees have been with Gabe for many years, thus providing quality, reliability, and control within the process.
