James (Historical Home Crafters) has built two houses for us (one in 1996 and one in 2019). We learned during the first construction project that James is professional, respectful, and takes pride in his work. Choosing him to build our new home was based on the experience we had the first time. His construction knowledge and experience combined with his integrity takes a lot of the stress out of b...

We had been working with an architect, considering whether to remodel or start from scratch. James Wagnon, owner and founder of Historical, was very helpful during that phase with price estimates and descriptions of challenges we would face in remodeling and expanding, which convinced us appropriately that we would be better off replacing the old cabin. Everyone agreed, including the architect, on...

James Wagnon was fantastic to deal with. We weren't sure what we wanted but he walked us through the whole process. They were a one-stop shop (drawings - completion), which was very helpful. They also did an incredible job on our landscaping! We highly recommend them! The designer was very thorough and knew her stuff. It was great working with everyone! Top class organization for sure. Give them a...

The process was awesome. He let us know what decisions needed to be made by when and gave us all the resources we needed to make wise decisions about EVERY aspect of our home. The man even went and watched the rain on three different occasions to check the grade of our land before making the first dig!! If you want attention to detail and a good steward of your money, this is the man and company f...

His people are very neat and timely. As you can see from photos the before and after of kitchen, as well as the beautiful garage.

Description of Work
James Wagnon built our house 19 years ago. We have loved our home, so when we decided to add a detached garage 19 years later we thought he'd be the guy to hire. Our garage is beautiful and looks like it has always been part of our house. James also has a flair for landscape and after 19 years our landscape became very overgrown. He replaced much of our landscape which made our house look new again. Since we were on a roll we decided our kitchen needed a facelift. James transformed our kitchen into a timeless beauty. Our entire kitchen was done in under 3 weeks. My husband and I highly recommend him for building or renovating.

This is the second project we had Historical Homecrafters do for us. Just like the first time, James the owner of Historical Homecrafters did a great job. Very professional and great quality of work. He did what he said he would do when he said he would do it. Provided great suggestions to customize the outcome. He had all subs lined up and made sure they knew exactly what was expected.

James proved to live up to his reputation, being both knowledgable and capable in all aspects of site preparations, home and property design, as well as things such as energy management and construction techniques, as well as the financial and manpower management aspects of the project. Further, he always kept us well informed of the status and progress of the work.

Description of Work
We contacted Historical Homecrafters to help us build a new family home on vacant property that we owned. We had no previous experience with James Wagnon, the principal of this company, but we soon found out that he was a very astute, professional person. Everyone that we came in contact with as we proceeded on the project , from bankers to real estate professionals, to owners of homes that James had built, spoke highly of him.

He was really nice and informative. He has taken in the whole concept of the entire city that we were in and what value the house could actually hold vs. what we needed. He did a great job of giving me other ideas about what we could do and what we couldn't do. It was a 1955 house and he has taken into consideration the historical preservation aspect of the house as well. He gave me a lot of infor...

James is very meticulous in planning and execution. He is well versed in both structural and landscape architecture, and has spent years studying the art of science involved in creating classic homesites. James worked well with us, and was very sensitive to our input and direction. He completed each phase on time. He submitted a comprehensive written estimate and adjusted it only with our approval...

Description of Work
We wanted to add a detached garage with storage rooms and re-landscape our back yard. James spent the necessary time to understand our needs and preferences. He designed a garage that met all of our storage and work requirements while adding to the value of the homesite. He also re-designed the lawn so that all of the landscape compliments the overall property. James sub-contracted with individual companies to complete the work, but oversaw in detail the entire process.
