About Hudson Remodeling

Meet your remodeling team.

Hudson Remodeling is a full-service residential remodeling contractor that has helped local homeowners expand, modernize and repair their living spaces since 1993.

The company was founded by Charlie Hudson — a licensed contractor who had high standards and a passion for home remodeling. Charlie served as the general manager until he transferred those duties to a longtime employee, Stuart James, in 2017.

Over the years, Hudson Remodeling’s team of skilled craftsman and building design pros have used their experience, technical abilities and problem-solving skills to remodel homes in Whatcom and Skagit County communities including Bellingham, Birch Bay, Blaine, Custer, Everson, Fairhaven, Ferndale, La Conner, Lynden, Semiahmoo and more.

Stuart James

Stuart James

General Manager

Stuart oversees subcontractors and Hudson’s crews on each jobsite, and he helps manage the day-to-day operations of Hudson Remodeling. He is a point of contact for our clients and he helps Susan with bidding and project estimating.

Stuart began working for Hudson Remodeling in 1996, serving as a lead carpenter until 2012. He took a break from working at Hudson for five years, then Charlie called and asked him to return and carry on the Hudson Remodeling legacy so he could retire. Stuart rejoined the team in 2017.

When he’s not meeting with clients or pounding a hammer, you’ll find Stuart at home doing his very best to wrangle two teenage daughters.

Susan works alongside Stuart to provide estimates, create remodeling plans, research supplies, and order materials. She graduated with honors from Cal Poly and holds a B.S. degree in Industrial Technology.

She enjoys helping our clients visualize their plans by using computer-aided design tools. Susan founded Silva Design in 2003 and, now in partnership with Hudson Remodeling, provides our team with creative design and drafting services.

In her spare time, she can be found hiking the mountains, kayaking our local waters, or globetrotting across multiple continents.
