About Us

Bensonwood's mission for over 40 years has been crafting beautiful and healthy, high-performance home sanctuaries capable of enduring for centuries. We believe sustainable design, state-of-the-art engineering, connection to the natural environment, and our dedication to fine living and well being are all equal goals in building your dream. While Bensonwood is still known for its exceedingly artful timberframe homes, it is also widely acknowledged as an innovative builder of hybrid and non-timbered, panelized homes as well. Through its custom fabrication of highly insulated and finished panelized assemblies, and its proprietary Open-Built® strategies that make the home flexible and adaptable to the owners' needs over time, Bensonwood has become acknowledged as the premier designer-builder of energy-efficient, high-performance buildings across the US and Canada. Among these are two LEED Platinum certified , Net-Zero public buildings in Maine and Vermont that create as much energy as they consume, and a Passive House in Vermont that requires no furnace. In 2012, Bensonwood launched a sister company, Unity Homes; an optimized series of pre-designed, Net-Zero ready homes, with the goal of making beautiful, healthy, high-performance prefab homes available to the broadest possible market segment. Bensonwood is an ENERGY STAR Partner, a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association, the Timber Framers Guild and the Forest Stewardship Council.
