Who We Are

Since 2004, we have been working to plan, design, and build practical, comfortable, high performance homes. We embrace the uniqueness of every project, big or small, and strive to provide every client with a wholly cooperative experience. Whether you are remodeling or building new, we believe that a holistic building approach, one that considers all of your needs and the needs of the environment, is the key to true success. At our core, we believe that how we decide to build will affect you (our clients), future tenants, our community, and the environment. Our goal is to build quality spaces that enhance quality of life, enrich our community, and save the environment - one building at a time.

Ted Mead
Owner

With over 30 years of experience in residential construction, Ted has been in every nook and cranny of hundreds of homes around New England. He views every project, especially remodels, as an opportunity to learn from the past - to learn from those who have built before us. He enjoys observing 'failures' (such as rotten sills and sagging roofs) just as much as he marvels in the success of a seemingly perfect building from the 1800's. He uses every past observation to design homes with intention - to last for generations, fit with the landscape, minimize waste, and maximize efficiency. He believes that we all have an obligation to contribute something meaningful to society. Bringing foresight to the building process and helping people build sustainably is his favorite way to contribute.
