Featured Reviews for Design-Build Firms in Nantucket, MA
Shelter 7
Design-Build Firms in Nantucket, MA
"We hired Shelter 7 to renovate a vacation home we purchased on Nantucket Island. We had originally thought of adding an addition on to the existing home as we wanted an extra bedroom, bathroom and mudroom. Jason came up with a creative layout of the home that used the same building footprint and eliminated the need for a costly addition. Throughout the entire process Jason made it extremely stress free and exciting for us. Jason created a version of our home which we have fallen in love with! We would highly recommend Shelter 7 for any of your building/design needs."

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, Nantucket 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 Nantucket, MA, 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 Nantucket 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 Nantucket design-builder:


  • How long have you been in the design-build construction business?
  • How many projects like mine have you completed?

  • Can you provide me with references?
