Accessory Structures are a great way to add a unique stamp to your home or property. The custom Pergola shown here was built to compliment a new pool house on the same property and was custom designed and built to suite the client's specific style preferences. A number of inspirational images were used to get an idea of the style and it was scaled and built to custom fit the client's outdoor space.
Accessory structures can also include things like Garages, Barns, Porticos, Pool houses & Cupolas. All of which can help to bring a little extra style to your home's curb appeal and a little more function to your life. If you would like to add a custom personal touch to your outdoor space in preparation for Spring & Summer call or e-mail us to set up a consultation today.

NARI's Contractor of the Year 2012
We are very proud to announce our latest industry achievement!
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry has awarded us the 2012 Contractor of the Year Award for a recent Residential Historical Renovation we completed in Bridgewater, MA.
This project, received Gold at NARI's local chapter level and went on to compete against like projects from all over the Northeast Region. We were very proud to have won the regional distinction as well. In fact it is quite an accomplishment in a region where Historical projects like this one are much more common.
This award also gives us a great sense of pride because Historical Restorations are the foundation that the services of our company were built on. Although we have come to offer a broad range of services in recent years, we still enjoy and excel at bringing life to historical gems in our community.
You may have already seen this project when we won the local Coty award...but if not here it is again:

Save money on your cooling bills this summer
Attic Ventilation Fans
Have you ever had to run up to your attic to grab something in the middle of a hot day in summer? Do you ever notice how stifling hot it can get up there? Believe it or not that heat can transfer into your main living space and cause your cooling system to work overtime, even more so if your cooling components are located in the attic. A system that has to work harder is much less efficient and ultimately could be costing you a lot more money. Increased temperatures in your attic can also cause added wear & tear on your roof shingles and reduce their longevity. The solution? Active Attic ventilation.
Installing an electric or solar powered attic ventilation fan will increase the effectiveness of your current attic ventilation. You are likely to notice the cost savings pretty quickly -sometimes covering the cost for the unit and installation with just 2 summers of use.
Here is a breakdown of the benefits:
- Decrease the overall temperature of your home
- Increase the efficiency of your cooling system
- Extend the life of your roof shingles
- Save Money on Cooling costs
- Great return on investment
