Michael Cabingas

Born and raised in Maui, Hawaii in 1960, third generation to plantation workers at the age of 5 my father Mr. Andres Cabingas would take me into the cane fields after his work day to gather his vegetables that he grew for our family. After our harvest we would walk the huge pipe line out of the fields and I remember my dad saying to me…."son, if you can’t keep up you get left behind!" well, needless to say yes, I had a hard time keeping up , I fell off that huge irrigation pipe many times but I got back up and kept trying to keep up. This is where I learned the core values of hard work, integrity and the simple things in life.

When Michael started his construction career in 1980 he started as a laborer and by 1981 became an apprentice. As he was eager to learn more he quickly advanced himself and earned the title of Journeyman/Carpenter in 1982. By 1983 he advanced himself again to Foreman/Supervisor then on to Project manager by 1985. In 1991 he completed the State of Hawaii Contractor’s License Board Exam to become a General Contractor where he holds to classifications, “B” General Building and “C” specialties in conjunction with “B” license (C-5, 6, 12, 24, 25, 42A, 42B).

With over 32 years of construction experience my passion is to share my values and integrity that I learned through out my early years in the plantation era and to provide my clients with the quality, professionalism and trustworthy services they pay for. Whether it be small interior/exterior repair work to major renovation to new home construction from start to completion I take pride in the work I provide my clients with honest, quality craftsmanship they deserve.
