After college, he took a job as an Industrial Arts teacher at Canton High School. Chuck continued building homes with his brothers during weekends and school breaks. In 1985, after becoming the Director of Occupational and Career Education, Chuck retired and began building full time. In 1991, Chuck moved to Cape Cod and started East Bay Builders in Osterville. In 2007, he became a partner at Kendall and Welch Construction, Inc.

Ronald Welch, Treasurer
Ron began his career in the construction industry as a young man after many years of managing his family’s local airline. He developed his love for the craft while watching his grandfather, a finish carpenter, when he was just a young boy. Ron built his first spec home in 1985 and hasn’t looked back since. He has had his hands on each phase of the building process, focusing for some seasons on framing and finish work and specialized in the fine craftsmanship of building stairs.

With over 30 years experience, Ron’s passion for building and his drive for excellence are apparent in all we do. Ron’s relational and management skills are exceptional and it shows on the jobsite in the way our team of subcontractors work together as friends.

Our Process

If you are building a new home and want it customized to your family’s specific needs, you are wise to consider Kendall and Welch as your builder. With more than 140 years combined experience, our three principals have “done it all” and will patiently support you with the difficult decisions. We have an organized approach that does not consider every decision a change order, but rather as part of the creative process, which we love. Our large pool of professional subcontractors — many of whom have been with us for more than twenty years — work together as a team of friends who respect each other’s work and honor their deadlines.

It is our desire to not only create for you a beautiful custom home, but to help you enjoy the process of creating it.
