Renovations and Remodeling

There are a lot of old homes and cottages in Maine that need to be renovated or remodeled. Sometimes it is updating a kitchen or adding or remodeling a bathroom. Maybe putting on an addition or a garage. Our experienced crew can help with any size project.

Sometimes the home may require extensive renovations as it may have been purchased as a second home or vacation home. Often, the owners are located out of state. They need a builder they can trust in their absence. We have a lot of experience in working with 'absent' home owners and we know that communication is the key!

"Trust – Being so far away from the project, not able to watch the daily progress, it was of ultimate importance to us that we knew we could trust you. Not only could we trust that you would make the right decisions structurally and cosmetically for our home, but fiscally as well. We cannot emphasize enough how relieving it has been to know we could trust you to make good decisions on OUR behalf in our absence.

"Quality – More than we ever expected. Every detail impeccable in our home. Your carpenters, painters, landscapers, electrician, plumber and so many others who worked under your direction have been masters at their craft. You hold a high standard and it clearly shows.

"Patience – Each time there was a delay, you remained in close communication with us and your suggestions enabled us to think a little longer about what we really wanted long term. This house will be comfortable and usable for many, many years to come. You responded positively and creatively to the flow of new ideas and related changes that are inevitable in any new project as it develops. The give and take always led to a net improvement. "

Some of the processes we have worked with include ICF foundations, solar and geothermal installations. We pride ourselves in creating unique and innovative structures.

Inspired by the incredible scenery from our Bailey Island location, we can provide you with a home that will delight you for years to come and be a legacy for your children.

We would be happy to discuss your next building project. Please call 207.837.5955 or email.

   "I have worked with Eric on a number of residential projects and can unconditionally recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a general contractor. He pays attention to detail and produces very high quality work. His experience and attentive manner are valuable to any architect or homeowner in the early stages of the process where he often solves problems before they come up. Once under construction, he will follow through and get things done in a timely manner. There are few other builders who are as capable of producing work in the highest level." - Robert S.
