About Us

Joe Mooney, Founder/Owner

mooney_S08-5310_webJoe began his construction management career in Chicago, after graduating from John Carroll University, in the early 90’s.  He skillfully converted run-down duplexes back to their former glory of single-family homes in popular neighborhoods such as Lincoln Park and Wrigleyville. It was during these initial years that Joe developed a passion for preserving the style and integrity of older homes ensuring that they be remodeled consistent with the period in which they were originally built.

Taking his Midwest values to Portland to pursue his dream of starting his own business, Joe founded Mooney Construction and Development, LLC in 1996 where he continued his passion of older home renovations throughout historic Portland neighborhoods.

Joe works diligently to remodel spaces that blend new and old, and modern and traditional styles within all budgets.  Joe holds a certification as a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) and also is highly educated in Eco-Friendly home building and renovations. He is also a “Certified Lead Renovator” with the State of Oregon.

Joe lives in NE Portland with his wife, Aimee, and their 2 sons, in a home he renovated in 2004.
