Plum Projects LLC

Plum is a full service design, build, and fabrication company. We specialize in distinctive contemporary residential and small commercial projects in the Northwest and beyond. With roots in studio art and custom fabrication, our aesthetic reflects a deep appreciation for the way design synchronizes material and craft to shape the experience of space. We work in close collaboration with clients and architects to deliver an outcome that is purposefully built and beautifully practical. Our team includes carpenters, cabinetmakers, site superintendents, project managers, architectural designers, and administrative specialists.

We have recently expanded from our fabrication shop in South Park to a new office and kitchen/furniture showroom on the edge of the Little Saigon Business District. We have a relaxed congenial work environment and are seeking those with diverse backgrounds, interested in helping shape Plum into a versatile and notable design studio.
