Build Your Fresh Start

Reclaim your Home

Most of us have something in our lives we want to recalibrate. A new habit – new attitude – more family time – a quiet space to reconnect? Sometimes, we just need a fresh start. Together, we’ll discover your most essential desire and reclaim your home space to support this life vision. In our 20+ years of experience in design build, we’ve focused on stellar craftsmanship and exceptional service.  It’s been our pleasure to join hundreds of former clients on this journey.


Is Customizing enough?

If you want a true fresh start, you need to take Customization to the next level. Every recommendation we make will start and end with Personalization.

  • Reduce Stress

    Stress is often the result of poor planning. Most construction jobs require you to plan, hire, budget, and manage your remodel with many different contacts over an indefinite period of time. Sound appealing?

  • Eliminate Overwhelm

    Learn How We ELIMINATE OVERWHELM

  • Budget Money

    The surest way to a contracting nightmare is not having a budgeting plan. Yet, this is one of the most overlooked steps in the process – a costly and frustrating mistake.

Client Testimonials

“Kevin communicated with us throughout the entire project and was quick to respond when we reached out with questions. In addition to the up-front planning meetings, he came by in person to check in on the work many times throughout the project, and kept us up to date on materials delivery, staff schedules, etc. via phone and email.”

West Boylston, MA

“They were awesome…they showed up every morning on time, explained what they were doing, and went about their work quietly and professionally, which was good since I work from home. They were great with our (overly) affectionate dog, and answered all of our questions thoroughly. Our siding installer (forget his name) was great — he would give us a recap every day of what he & his crew had done and what was next.”

Westborough, MA

“I know this may sound crazy, but I really appreciated The project management/billing practices Kevin uses. It was so easy to see where we were at, with the project status and budget allotment for each piece of the job. There would be little chance of a project getting out-of-control and over budget since every Friday you receive an update of a very detailed spreadsheet. Loved this!”

West Boylston, MA

“Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and thorough in the pre-project meetings we had. He explored all of our options, and made recommendations based on his experience. Throughout the project, he explained everything he and the crew did and made small recommendations along the way that made such a difference in the way our house turned out. Adding roof overhangs, wrapping our porch columns, etc. We couldn’t have possibly managed our project without Kevin and his crew.”

Westborough, MA
