.David was prompt, arrived to start the work on the date he had committed to and completed the work on time. He kept in touch through out and sent me photos of the work as it progressed so I could see the nature of the repair and the work that was done. This way I could see the work that would ultimately be behind the clapboards. David's estimate for the work was competitive. He left the site clean and neat. I would not hesitate working with David again and his knowledge of antique framing and construction is excellent.

Description of Work
Install a second story patio door, repair rotted framing around opening. Sill repair on main house.

We met with numerous contractors before selecting David. Most contractors we spoke with did not appreciate the difference between an antique post and beam structure and new construction. It was obvious that he enjoys working on antiques and understands them. He was excellent in reviewing and understanding the structural elements of the house. He spent at least an hour looking over the sill structure, settling on a plan for the structural repair and restoration and walking us through/discussing the reasoning behind the plan. David was punctual and professional throughout. He is extremely enthusiastic about his work and more than willing to share his experience. He came on time and delivered estimates when he said he would. He set a start date and began and finished on time. The work took about three weeks to complete, which is very reasonable considering the amount of work needed. He employed appropriate safety when working on the steep roof. The quality of the work is excellent and his attention to detail was fantastic. Repairing a sill plate and beam on a antique post and beam structure is always a bit of a concern. Dave's original plan and assessment of the scope of the work was excellent and required only minor adaptation as the the work progressed. In addition he made a few additional repairs to the siding and trim not in the original quote pro bono because he didn't think it looked good compared to the repaired area. He used more expensive materials than in the original quote in some areas as he felt standard materials would not last for tens of years in those places. This demonstrated his going beyond attitude to ensure quality. He left the site clean and neat. He documented the work with photos so we can see what was behind the siding for future reference and sent picture texts most days. His enthusiasm was great and was always willing to give advice on other repairs we were considering as dyi projects. Certainly we will consider Dave again when it comes time to do simple jobs or more complex projects on the to do list.

Description of Work
Dave did considerable repair and restoration of our 1864 cape. Considerable exterior repair was needed due to deferred maintenance by previous owners. This included about 16 feet of sill restoration and repair for the post and beam structure and residing most of the second story. In addition most trim, fascia and window sills needed replacement on the second story. Finally, Dave primed and painted all the repaired areas. The painting used two clapboard colors, a trim color and two highlight colors. He applied an oil primer and two coats finish paint expertly.

Great. The best thing about David is the enthusiasm he has for his work. And it in shows in the quality. He listens to what you have to say and responds thoughtfully keeping your particular concerns (like budget or authenticity) in mind. He works with his son. Together they get the job done when they say it will be done and at the price they gave you.

Description of Work
He replaced three sections of roof. He added weather guard to two roof edges. He repaired a basement hatch door. He completely sealed all edges. This price includes all the supplies.

He did an excellent job. I would highly recommend him for anything. We had the windows put in during the fall before the winter. We actually have a sun room and he actually built that sun room a year and a half ago. They closed it all in, and made it more like a livable room. We had him last in 2011 to put eight windows in, instead of the screens; so that we had both screens now and windows. I loved his services. He is very reasonably priced and did excellent work. He showed up when he was supposed to show up. We are going to use him again in summer to build in steps for us.

Description of Work
I used Farwell of Generation General Contracting for my window work.
