Refined Renovations - The Style Refinery
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"Jim Buhrer of Refined Renovations offers incredible vision, efficient execution, and an exquisite design sense and attention to detail that is truly beyond compare. After listening to us talk about the many possibilities for our addition, Jim provided us focus and a fabulous concept for our new master bedroom suite. He collaborated with us and an architect to ensure a solid plan, and in a few short months, Jim and his team built the addition over our garage that blends as if it has always been a part of the house. While the entire Refined Renovations team was professional and efficient, it was Jim’s creativity and wonderful design sense that enabled us to realize our dream of a casually sophisticated sanctuary that is simply elegant."

Carpenter & MacNeille
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"We worked with Carpenter & MacNeille over the winter and early spring of 2014 to redecorate The Inn at Castle Hill, a ten-room B&B in Ipswich, Massachusetts. The project included new and reupholstered furniture, new rugs/carpeting, new paint and wallpaper, new lighting, new window treatments, and accessories (accent pillows, decorative items, etc.), and a small amount of construction. We were looking for "design wow" in keeping with the five-star nature of the Inn, which is nestled into a corner of The Crane Estate, a seaside country estate that has been designated a National Historic Landmark. We are thrilled with the results. Carpenter & MacNeille had done much of the original design and construction for the Inn a decade before. They listened carefully to our goals for this project, understood precisely what we hoped to accomplish, helped us prioritize in ways that significantly improved our impact, and provided insightful design guidance along the way. The project was on budget and guests are saying that the Inn has never looked better!"

The Curtice Group Inc
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"I'm happy to give Scott Curtice my strongest positive recommendation. Our project went quite smoothly, staying on schedule thanks to the fact that my office is in the house and Scott's commitment to providing a foreman. This enabled us to make decisions quickly and address problems promptly. Scott and his crew showed a lot of creativity in meeting our requirement to stay in the house during the renovation, to the extent of setting up a temporary kitchen and shower in the basement. In the end, we only had to be out of the house for about a week. He was also very good about coordinating with our architect and the cabinetmaker that we selected ourselves. Having heard a few horror stories of renovation cost overruns, I think we also did well in this respect. Our final figure was about 10% more than the initial estimate due to the kind of unforeseen issues that can be expected on any such project, along with a few changes that we ordered. The level of detail Scott provides in his constantly updated spreadsheet also helped us to make some decisions that reduced our cost."

Timberpeg
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"They use a modular system of design and engineering that allows complete flexibility in style, layout and size, providing the freedom to customize that is the hallmark of the design/build approach. Because of this, and the extraordinarily high quality of the frame packages, we at Smith & Robertson are proud to be the select Timberpeg Independent Representative for the Central Virginia Region. We have built well over a dozen Timberpeg homes and always appreciate the integrity and precision of the product and the design and engineering support staff. Our clients love the warmth and beauty of the frames. This is a top notch timber frame company."

Barnes Building & Remodeling, Inc.
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH

Adams + Beasley Associates
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"I hired Adams + Beasley to build a built-in dining area off my kitchen (with seating and storage) and a built-in bench off of my entryway. They were incredibly pleasant and professional to work with. Their work was efficient, they were respectful of my home and keeping the jobsite clean and they met every timeline. They problem solved, were creative and their craftsmanship was superior. They were fitting both built-ins into a pre-existing architectural design scheme. What they came up with was a seemless transition in terms of detail and design work. The quality of their work is the best I've seen and I have been in the high end interior design business for 14 years. I was also very impressed with the quality and professionalism of their subs. Overall, the entire experience was very very positive and the end result was more than I could have hoped for. I would absolutely hire Adams + Beasley for any project going forward."

Blackdog Design Build Remodel
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"Blackdog contractors were the perfect fit for us---they were as interested in giving us exactly what we wanted as we were in getting it. Blackdog builders are not the contractors of those horror stories you hear about; they're the contractors you dream about---RELIABLE, competent, fair-minded, communicative, efficient, and true to their word. Their craftsmanship is unparallelled. They completely demolished/re-designed/re-built our entire kitchen, and we are 100% satisfied. When was the last time you were 100% satisfied? With ANYTHING?"

Don Foote Contracting
Design-Build Firms in Manchester, NH
"We hired Don Foote Contracting for a total renovation of a 3300 sq ft old house. Work involved demolition to the studs, reframing and then complete renovation. The job moved along rapidly and they were always quick to react to any bumps along the way. Don and his team work very hard to be as transparent as possible with what is happening and costs of various aspects of the project. They are also very organized and push the homeowner to make all necessary decisions up front so things are not delayed waiting for material or while a design decision is made. Despite having a very detailed and explicit plan before we started we still made some changes along the way. They took these in stride. The team and subcontractors were clean and respectful of ourselves and our neighbors and they did great work. We ended up with a wonderful house that we love. I would absolutely hire them again. Final bit of advice: Plan EVERY BIT OF DETAIL POSSIBLE for your project BEFORE YOU START. A good contractor will love you for it and you will save money."

What is a design-build firm?


Design-build firms take on the responsibilities of architects, contractors and construction companies, all under one roof. These full-service firms focus on a streamlined design-build process — from the initial design to the estimating phase to physical construction — in the hope of creating an efficient experience for both the client and the company. Because the entire project is happening within one company, Manchester design-build firms are able to overlap the design and construction phases of the project, which often speeds up the project significantly. In addition, these firms work to minimize risks for the project owner through single-point responsibility contracts. However, depending on the firm, you may still want to contact an interior designer or architect to help create the exact look you want. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of design-build firms: Interior Designers & Decorators, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, Architects & Building Designers, Photographers.

Before deciding on a residential design-and-build company in Manchester, NH, think about what you want from your new home. Do you want a large kitchen for entertaining? Do you need several bedrooms for children and guests? Do you want a finished basement for extra space or storage? Look for Manchester design-builders that specialize in the areas you're looking for. Budget is obviously a determining factor in the outcome of your project. To make sure you stay within your means, consider making a must-have list and a wish list. Gauge where the estimates are falling to determine which design-build contract can realistically strike the balance between the two.

Questions to ask a prospective Manchester design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the design-build construction business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?
  • Who will be working on the project?
  • Are the workers employees or subcontractors?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Who is your designer, and what are his or her qualifications?

  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • When can this job get done?
